We all wish we could wake up more alert and energetic. Some of us have a real struggle waking up each morning. It ends up putting us in a terrible mood. Sleep inertia (or “morning grogginess” as it’s most commonly known as) is a physiological state characterized by a noticeable decline in motor skills and dexterity.
This groggy morning physiological state can last anywhere between 2 to 4 hours with our alertness and mental performance during this time being significantly hindered.
Fortunately, there are ways for us to actively combat our “morning grogginess.” The solutions might be easier than you first thought.
MyBedFrames created the helpful infographic below, outlining 16 ways in which we can reduce (or completely negate) the effects of sleep inertia. These tips will allow us to properly kick-start our days.
