Last night, I had a terrible sleep.
I know exactly why it happened, too.
I’ve been studying all sorts of different wake up early strategies for quite some time now. So I know what it takes to make waking up early a breeze.
A major part of doing that is nailing down healthy sleep habits.
Funny thing is, I followed exactly ZERO of that advice last night. As a result, my sleep suffered in a big, BIG way.
I don’t want that to happen to you.
So without further ado…
Here are 3 reasons why my sleep suffered last night.
Avoid them and you’re sure to avoid the same fate as me.
1) Alcohol before bed
As a general rule, avoid drinking alcohol at least 3 hours before you go to sleep.
I know that might be hard to do. But dems the rules, mang.
Alcohol will reduce the amount of quality sleep you get.
So if you’re consuming alcohol close to bedtime, you’re sleep is sure to suffer.
2) Media before bed
Phones, televisions, computers — ALL are detrimental to your sleep.
Especially if it’s too close to your bedtime.
Shut off or put away your electronics at least an hour before you hit the sheets.
This will help your body and mind start to prepare for higher quality sleep.
Which, in turn, will mean a better slumber.
3) Media IN the bedroom
Straight up, get that TV out of your bedroom.
If it’s in there, your mind is going to have a harder time associating your room with sleep.
Instead, it will associate it with other activities, like watching TV.
You don’t want that.
You want your bedroom to be slumber central.
So get the media OUT of your bedroom and watch how much your sleep improves.
I could go on and on about healthy sleep habits.
But these are the 3 top contributors to my poor sleep last night.
Avoid them and you’re sure to have a better slumber.
Avoid avoiding them and your sleep will surely suck.
And you don’t want that, do you?
Oh, and when you’re ready
