Nothing feels worse than having to drag yourself to the office after a bad night’s sleep. Your thoughts are clouded, your body feels heavy, and, chances are, you won’t be able to complete any meaningful tasks during the day (unless you use these research-backed hacks for staying awake).
And, as much as you’d like to snap your fingers and transform into a bright and cheery morning person, it won’t happen until you identify whatever it is that’s keeping you from sleeping soundly.

Use this flowchart from The Sleep Matters Club to find your bad sleeping habit—and learn some quick and easy ways to fix it.

A board member of Columbia Organization of Rising Entrepreneurs, Kat is either hosting inspiring founders or trekking across cities (Silicon Valley and London, anyone?) to discover the hottest startups. And, when she’s not putting together large-group gatherings for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Kat is planning food excursions to discover the best Taiwanese beef noodle soup in NYC.
