Waking Up Refreshed

worksheet

So many people struggle to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. They might feel like they’ve tried everything to combat this—from drinking triple espressos to taking icy cold showers—yet nothing seems to work. So, what does work?

Our Waking Up Refreshed information handout provides research-backed solutions to make mornings better. This worksheet features 10 tips to help people wake up feeling good. The information will help clients learn how to have a better night’s sleep, get moving in the morning, and make mornings more pleasant. Some of the tips included are:

  • Practice sleep hygiene
  • Don’t hit snooze
  • Let in natural light
  • Have something to look forward to
  • Eat a good breakfast

The tips in this worksheet are brief, easy to understand, and effective. This information can be especially useful for clients dealing with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or chronic pain, all of which may negatively impact sleep.

After reviewing the handout, consider exploring some areas more deeply, particularly sleep hygiene. See our Sleep Hygiene handout for more information.
