Bet­ter ways make bet­ter days

Try mix­ing up your morn­ing rou­tine for some sur­pris­ing health ben­e­fits

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION -

More than half of us use smart­phones to wake us up, but reach­ing for them first thing usu­ally means we start our day check­ing emails and mes­sages. While seem­ingly harm­less, this can raise our alert­ness and stress lev­els with spikes in cor­ti­sol and adren­a­line. This can re­duce our day­time en­ergy. Hav­ing a pe­riod of de­tach­ment from phones can be a healthy thing. Leave yours in an­other room and in­vest in an old-fash­ioned alarm clock for a less stress­ful morn­ing.
