The Art of Sleeping In
Answer your inner voice-wake up when you want to.
The Art of Sleeping InThere's a reason they call it an alarm clock. It jolts you into being every weekday morning. Give it (and yourself) a rest on the weekend.
First, hide that clock. Silence the ringer. If it seems symbolic, stash it in a drawer under a stack of sweaters.
Issue a privacy request (ink it on your planner). Nicely, firmly, tell the world that you'll be waking up on body time. Lay out the cereal and bowls the night before. There--you've been the good provider.
Dress for sleeping success. Choose lightweight clothes that don't tangle or overheat you as you snooze.
Pamper the bed. Splurge on good bedding--not too heavy, not too nubby.
Perfect pillows make a difference. Whether you're a side sleeper, back sleeper, or a flat-on-tummy snoozer, there's one for you. The feather vs. acrylic vs. fiberfill choice is totally up to you, but remember that fiberfill is best if you have allergies.
