Getting up at the crack of dawn sucks. We know, and experts know - which is why they've been studying sleep patterns to find out why it sucks so much. Turns out, being an early riser isn't a matter of just setting the alarm; it requires a strategic plan to reset your body's clock by making little tweaks throughout the entire day. This info couldn't have come at a better time, considering that nowadays, being the first one at work could actually help you hold on to your job. (If you still miss your alarm, here's how to handle walking in late.)
