To be honest, the idea of a “sleep hack” sounds terrifying. The first thing that comes to mind is Freddy Krueger reaching his clawed hand up between my legs while I’m sleeping and I’m not into that. However, whether or not you’re aware of it, your sleeping routine is an important ritual that affects your perspective and performance. Getting a good night’s rest is effectively a super power that grants you a bonus to your focus, creativity and energy levels throughout the day. Since “a rising tide lifts all ships,” the more people who are sleeping, feeling, and performing better, the more the world as a whole functions at optimum performance and the more likely we are to make it to a type one civilization.
Okay, maybe I’m romanticizing the impact of a good night’s sleep a little. But whether you can’t fall asleep at night, don’t get a good enough sleep when you do, can’t get out of bed, or are dealing with issues that keep you up, there are simple straight forward steps you can take to help you help yourself.
You are now leaving the ‘before’ stage of your life when sleep was something you did at the end of the day. From now on you will know that a proper night’s sleep is always the beginning.
