Texting your friends, listening to music and scrolling through Twitter are the biggest distractions when it comes to our nighttime routine which impacts the quality of our morning the next day. However tempting it may be, try to deter any distractions by switching your phone off (the horror!) and head off to bed at a reasonable time. Invest in a good alarm clock so you won’t have to rely on your phone, it will keep your phone at bay and get you up and raring to go when the sun rises.
How many times do you hit the snooze button? Once is one too many so drop the habit and shake up your routine by waking up nice and early.

An early start will avoid the morning rush and the extra time can be dedicated to preparing yourself for your day.
