7. Buy a basic kitchen timer
Set a countdown timer with a loud ring when you are watching television and surfing the internet. Get up and do yard work, house cleaning, or some other physical activity when the timer rings.
8. Make your home bicycle friendly
Read Steve Graham’s article on easy and cheap bike storage ideas, and reap the health benefits of biking.
9. Put your lights on timers
It’s hard to get up out of bed and exercise before work. When multiple alarm clocks didn’t work for me, I put my lamps on timers. The lamps automatically turn on at 6 AM. The light, in addition to my alarm clock, gets me out of bed early and onto my yoga mat.
10. Make your bed and keep your bedroom clean
You are more likely to stay up late surfing the internet and munching if your bedroom is a dark, messy cave. Simply making your bed, so that it looks inviting, will help you to break the late-night surfing/watching/snacking habit in favor of getting some digestion-restoring, metabolism-balancing beauty sleep.
