Back on Track: Wake Up Early on Sunday Morning

Starting the week off without getting enough sleep on Sunday night is no fun, but our sleep schedules tend to get all messed up on the weekends. While I like to sleep in on the weekends, if I sleep too late on Sunday, I have a tough time going to bed at a reasonable hour that night. Then I start the week off on the wrong and very groggy foot.

Try this solution. On Sunday morning, no matter what time you go to bed on Saturday night (well, within reason), try waking up just an hour or so later than you would on a normal workday. If you usually wake up at 7, wake up at 8 or even 8:30, but don't sleep any later than that. You'll be less tired than you'd think on Sunday, and you'll have no trouble hitting the sheets at your usual bedtime on Sunday night. You may have to sacrifice some sleep on Saturday night, but it'll be worth if for how good you feel when you wake up on Monday.
