Sleep is the most productive thing you do all day

The quality of life decreases when we don't get enough sleep. To improve your quality of sleep:

  • Keep it cool, dark, and quiet. A temperature between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit (18-22 degrees celsius) is recommended.
  • No screens before bed. The blue light of screens interferes with your body clock.
  • Have a calming bedtime routine. Doing the same winding down routine before bed prepares your body and mind for the night.
  • Keep a consistent wake-up time. Your natural body clock is more aligned with the time you wake up than the time you fall asleep.
  • Skip coffee after noon. Caffeine has a half-life of 4 - 6 hours.
