We are more reliant on Laptops and workstation to perform our daily which leads us to sitting in front of them for long period of time. And the moment we get home we are tired and there is no time or energy to go to the gym or any other physical activity.

If you don't catch any bright light our brain thinks its still not morning and you feel lazy. We don't need to find any bright light bulb or so because we already have the Sun. Sunlight is the most accurate amount of light that helps you wake you up.
So the first thing you should be doing is opening up your curtains and letting the bright sunlight come in and this simple act would change your sleep cycle and overall health in no time.
