You just need to shift your clock. Begin by setting an alarm for bedtime—for a time that’s earlier than usual. It may take your body a week or two to make the adjustment, but beginning your slowdown routine earlier will get you sleeping sooner and prime you for the morning, so you’ll have the energy to get out of bed and rock out! It may still be dark outside when you wake up, but lean into its peacefulness: You’re one of the first people to enjoy the day. You’ll come to savor that time. I promise.
