Let go of last night’s poor sleep experience, Don’t dwell or think about it. Don’t express it or tell anyone you had a bad night’s sleep and don’t blame your mood and behaviour for it either.
Meditate as soon as you can. I recommend lighting a candle or burning a Palo stick or some sage. Set your intentions for the day while gently resting your gaze on the burning candle or smoking sage. If this doesn’t appeal to you, having a moment with your eyes closed in sunlight by a window works as well!
Have some green tea! I love a Matcha Latte. Green tea has one-fifth of the caffeine a cup of brewed coffee has and also contains L-theanine, a naturally soothing compound. Don’t forget to stay hydrated through out the day.
Avoid sugar on this day. You will naturally crave sugar for energy after a bad night’s sleep. Avoid it in order to avoid an even worse sugar crash later on in the day. Instead, stick to a balanced diet and put extra emphasis on protein-rich foods like nuts and vegetables. Avoid large meals and simple carbohydrates. No pasta for lunch to avoid energy dips.
Try to simplify your day and prioritise important tasks first. If possible, lighten your work load. Don’t go to bed earlier, unless you really have to. You don’t want to impair the biological clocks that help you sleep. Try to get into a relaxation state by taking a warm bath. Unplug ! No mobile phones allowed.
