One way you can ensure feeling great and full of energy throughout the day is by mastering your sleeping habits. Here is a digested list of three recommendations from all my readings about this topic (and doing it):
#1 Maintain a Consistent Sleeping Schedule
Most adults need at least around 7-8 hours of sleep to feel fully rested. Keeping a consistent sleeping schedule will help you feel exhausted by bedtime and ready to go the next morning.
(What If?) When going to bed later than planned, don’t sleep in. Wake up at your regular time, and make up for it with a quick 20 minute nap before 4 pm, or by going to bed earlier.
#2 Last Heavy Meal Only 3 Hours Before Bedtime
Giving your body time to digest the last big meal before bedtime helps you wake up with an appetite the next morning. This is important, as having a big breakfast is important to supercharge your day.
(What If?) When missing your dinnertime, have a light meal instead. The closer to bedtime, the lighter you should eat.
#3 Screen-Free Zone During Download Time
One hour before going to bed, you need to drive your body and mind into sleeping mode, so that you’re fully sleep by bedtime. After this point you should avoid any bright lighting, as this can kill your sleep.
(What If?) Missed your download time?...just make sure you are not on your laptop or watching TV late at night. That’s the takeaway here.
