8 Ways to Wake up With More Energy - #1

This fits me 100% so I thought I would share with those of you who are like me.  This is from GrandParents.com

Tired of Feeling Tired?
Brrrrrrriiiiiiiinnngggg! When the alarm goes off, do you:
A. Spring immediately out of bed, shouting, “It's going to be a great day!”
B. Moan, hit the snooze button and then pull the sheets over your head.

If your answer is A, then good for you. In the more likely event that your answer is B, don’t worry, help is on the way. Here are suggestions on how to quickly shake off the morning blahs and greet the day more refreshed.
1. Go to Sleep the Right Way
The best way to wake up refreshed is to get a good night’s sleep. This means:

No caffeine after lunch since caffeine can be a stimulant and keep you awake. And only one glass of wine at dinner. Too much wine can knock you out, then cause you to wake up during the night.
Make sure your room is cool. “The drop off in temperature is a natural cue for your body to fall asleep,” W. Christopher Winter, MD, Medical Director at the Martha Jefferson Sleep Center in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Don’t exercise near bedtime—it will just rouse your body.

Stay off the computer—and away from any lit screen—an hour before bed. The light makes your brain think it’s day time. (If you must, download F.lux at stereopsis.com/flux. It’s a free software program that makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the light in the room.)
