You might find yourself a person who is unable to find enough time in the day. These four tips may be helpful if your morning routine has been stuttering since lunch.

Tip 1: Avoid hitting “snooze”Avoid at all cost. You can move your alarm clock so far away from your bed that you will have to get up and walk to turn the dial.

“When you hit the snooze button repeatedly, you’re fragmenting what little extra sleep you’re getting, so it is of poor quality,”Robert S. Rosenberg is the medical director at the Sleep Disorders Centers in Prescott Valley and Flagstaff (Arizona).

Tip 2: Get a good night’s sleep with a hearty breakfast. This advice is probably enough for you. But if more people did it, it wouldn’t be necessary to stress it so much. A Penn Schoen Berland survey from January 2014 found that while nearly 85 percent believe breakfast is important to Americans, only half of those who skip it say they don’t have the time or prefer to sleep in.

Tip 3 – Get more protein. According to, eggs (and even bacon) can be powerful breakfast options that keep you going and provide the energy your body needs to get through the day. Some breakfast options, like the Compleats ones mentioned in tip two, are easy to prepare.

“Eggs are a great source of nutrients,”Mitch Kanter Ph.D. is the Egg Nutrition Center’s executive director. “Just one egg contains 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants.”

Tip #4: Get up earlier in the morning. You can shift your bedtime gradually each night if you’re a night owl but still want to get up earlier in the morning. Find a time you are able to get up early and complete the day without having to take a nap, and stick with it. You can be productive even if you aren’t getting enough sleep. Aristotle observed, “It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth and wisdom.”
