Find the right direction
Our bodies can only synchronise with the so-called “sleep, work, live” 24-hour rhythm through the correct exposure to light and darkness, and children are no exception. If possible, orientate any children’s bedrooms you have eastwards towards the morning sun. This is particularly beneficial for adolescents and young adults, who have a delayed biological clock and often find it hard to get up in the mornings. Also, make sure your curtains or blinds stop as much light as possible from entering their room at night.
