Whether you’re traveling or trying to wake up early to start a new fitness routine, your sleep cycle can get thrown off, reports Reader’s Digest.

When traveling, try to mentally adapt your new time zone, instead of reminding yourself and others what time zone your body is reacting to, says Karen Nourizadeh, meditation guru and instructor at Pure Yoga in New York. “Even though there is a discrepancy, if you continue to think or speak of that discrepancy, you are reinforcing that there is a deficit or negative effect on you or your sleep patterns.”
