(NaturalNews) Getting a good, energetic start in the morning starts the night before. Planning your next day and getting organized before you go to bed can be helpful in two ways. That includes everything from a realistic to-do list to making sure your clothes are set aside.

You'll be leaving the day behind and not thinking about tomorrow when you try to sleep.Not wondering what you should do or wear first thing in the morning will help you be less confused. That could help you wake up with more focus.

Getting a good night's sleep is paramount to having your energy and wits throughout the next day. So make sure you get to bed early enough. But if your sleep is shallow and interrupted, the length of time in bed is no measure of sufficient restorative rest.

Five simple suggestions for quick, long-lasting energy the next day

(1) Make sure there is no light coming into your bedroom. If necessary, use one of those sleeper blindfolds. If it's noisy, a good set of earplugs can be helpful. Use a non plug-in alarm, or put the electric alarm on the other end of your bedroom.

Plug-in radio alarms are nice, but they emit electromagnetic radiation near your head. Unplugging your Wi-Fi modem's emf radiation is a good idea too. Make sure you're not sleeping near a "smart meter" or at least you put something on your wall to block the EMF somewhat.

All of these wonders of technology can mess with our sleep cycles, which if not fully experienced will put you into a level of sleep deprivation. More on sleep here (http://www.naturalnews.com/026637_sleep_health_immune_system.html).

For waking up, a quick shower can be helpful. Starting out with hot water then switching to cold not only helps you wake up, it's considered a long term health builder. This technique can regenerate you. Details here (http://www.naturalnews.com/035982_shower_water_healing.html).

(3) Then make your bed and get dressed, even if you work from your home. This gives your mind-body more wake up signals and helps you resist the temptation of climbing back into bed. Now is the time for the music of your choice. No TV, it dulls awareness.

Before breakfast, squeeze a lemon or lime into a glass of warm water and drink it. This helps get your liver activated. A tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) into a half-glass of water or less gets your digestive juices going.

(4) Try to have some sort of protein in your breakfast meal. It doesn't have to be bacon or sausage. Eggs or organic dairy products can provide protein. A morning cup of java is okay, but try not to overdue it.

Maybe take an apple with you to avoid donuts and coffee at or on the way to work. If you have several cups of coffee throughout the day, you'll burn out and have a poor night's sleep.

(5) Try exposing yourself to as much sunlight as possible even while indoors. Sunlight wakes you up more and minimizes the sleep hormone melatonin.

Also, a little exercise can be beneficial. It doesn't have to be a long run or involve the hassle of going to a gym. A quick brisk walk may be sufficient. So is running from your car into your workplace, or using stairs instead of an elevator.

Of course, if you have to deal with others in the morning, your activity and running around may even be too much. Then you may need a session of soothing or inspiring music, tai-chi, hatha yoga, or meditation to restore your energy.
