An article in the September issue of Redbook magazine has two timely tips: one will help you get enough sleep at night; the other will help you start your new day off right.
Getting enough sleep is key to maintaining excellent health. For those who lose track of time and stay up too late, set an alarm on your iPhone or clock just as you would in the morning to wake yourself up. When the alarm goes off, that's your signal to head to bed.
Then in the morning, instead of jumping out of bed right away, take a moment to think about how you feel. Follow that up by indulging in a stretch while you're still in bed. The experts interviewed in the article say that taking a minute to focus on your body first thing in the morning helps you set a more mindful tone for the rest of your day.
