Many of you probably think this is unnecessary or that you sleep fine the way you are... The truth is MOST people have terrible sleep and if you don't get high quality sleep your whole life suffers. You won't be able to think clearly, focus on complex tasks or make smart decisions in your business. GET A TRACKER tonight!
This one is a very low hanging fruit and very easy to see huge benefits from. Most people may not know this but simply managing your wake up and sleep times can drastically affect the quality of your sleep.
If you're somebody who never goes to sleep at the same time this may be causing disruptive and less restorative sleep... I know this may sound preliminary but try giving yourself a bed time and stick to it on weekends and weekdays.
Reducing blue light at night, using F.lux and early morning sunshine exposure can all also help to set your circadian rhythm.
Research shows that taking a nice shower or bath before bed instead of in the morning can actually affect your sleep and increase the length of both REM and Deep sleep cycles.
This is because of something called "sleepy hygiene" and is a very real thing. If your body feels clean you WILL sleep better.
Added tips: keep your sheets and your room clean for the same reasons.
It is estimated that between 68-80% of the US adult population is magnesium deficient.
Magnesium promotes NATURAL melatonin production which means faster sleep onset and more restful sleep. It has also been shown to block cortisol receptors in the brain which reduces that "brain chatter" we entrepreneurs may have.
I am not a doctor so consult a physician or do some research about this and find out if this is right for you. I've had some amazing results from this.
