Tip #26 - HOW to get a good night's sleep!

Sleep tight

So now that you know the importance of sleep, it’s time to give you some tactical and practical applications.  Let’s prepare for better sleep by doing an assessment of our bedrooms.  The truth is, your environment can make or break your sleep.  The 2 hours before you go to bed may be the best determinate in how well you fall asleep AND stay asleep.  Some questions to answer are:

  • What are the sources of noise in your house?
  • How late are you eating and drinking?
  • What are you eating and drinking before bed?
  • What and where is the lighting in your house?
  • Do you have a TV in your bedroom?
  • How dark is your bedroom?
  • What is the “Tech” culture in your house?
  • When is your last cup of coffee or tea?
  • Do you drink alcohol?  When is your last drink?
  • When do you go to sleep?
  • When do you wake up?
  • Do you create a rhythm that follows the “90 rule” we talked about yesterday?

Sleep is something vital to you and your family’s health.  Don’t take it for granted; maximize it in every way you can to ensure that you are always at your best. Over the next two days we will be supplying you with the information you need to get better sleep. Watch this short video to find our more.

 

Cheers!
