A University of Toronto study found that early risers tend to be happier than their late night counterparts.

Here’s some hints to help you change your sleeping habits.

Avoid coffee, red wine and chocolate in the evening.

Why? They disrupt the sleep patterns as well as tend to disrupt the intestines.

Sleep patterns vary. But, ensure you allow yourself enough time for sleep.

Be organized. Get some of your tasks for the next day done the night before.

Drink water to avoid dehydration and take some deep breaths.

Think positive thoughts.

Try writing down one positive thought, memory or goal the night before.

Happy thoughts make a happy individual!
