Get Your Beauty Sleep and Wake Up Cheerful!
Go to bed at a reasonable hour. To be cheerful in the morning one must get enough sleep.
Make sure your room is dark enough to get a good night's sleep. Any slight bit of light may cause the mind to go into awake mode.
Avoid stress before bedtime. Do not watch the late news right before bedtime. The negativity of the news is not conducive to a good night's rest.
Get ready for the next morning before you go to sleep. Get your outfit ready, and handle any chores that must be done before you leave in the morning. You will sleep better and wake up more cheerful knowing that you will have a calm, organized morning.
Take a few minutes to write in a gratitude journal before bedtime. Reflecting on what made you happy or feel good during the day helps your mind move to a place of gratitude and joy. Drifting off to sleep in this mood helps set the tone for good sleep and a cheerful morning.
