Once you start getting into the habit of staying up late at night and sleeping in during the morning, it can be hard to get back to a healthy sleep schedule. In fact, most of us don’t even get the luxury of sleeping in, and having your sleep cycle cut short by a morning alarm is even worse for your mental and physical health than a late sleep schedule. Trying to get by on coffee, energy drinks and bars, and other stimulating snacks may give you a temporary boost, but the crash that comes afterwards will only make your situation worse. While it can seem like you’ll be stuck dreading your alarm forever, with just a little self-discipline and a good outlook, you can break the habit and start getting your restful nights back.
