and feel great!
Go to bed earlier

Watch a little TV during breakfast
It is good to be exposed to bright light for at least 20 minutes. The light from the TV can help wake you up. Another naturalistic alternative is to have 20 minutes of sun exposure.
Help a friend out
Have a little convo with your roommate…careful not to start the day with an argument!
Don’t hit the snooze
