Establish a screen curfew after dark, and dim the lights and/or use yellow lenses and bulbs after dark, too.?
Take a 5-to-15-minute evening stroll, enjoy some family relaxation time (board game, cards, talking, reading).?
Awaken early, hopefully near sunrise and without an alarm, but do the best you can.?
Expose yourself to direct sunlight as soon as you wake up, and consider an energizing morning ritual (breathing and stretching exercises, cold water plunge, hot shower, neighborhood stroll), if you are not the morning type.
