We all want to live a richer, fuller life. But where does it all start for you?
For me, it starts from getting good sleep. Getting enough of it. After a bout of insomnia that kept me awake until past 1am I committed to sleep by 11pm for 2 months. I didn’t always succeed but there was a noticeable difference: I felt more rested (duh!), more alert, more energetic, I got more done in the morning and it even felt I had more time in the morning (I’d finish a few things and then realise it was only 10:30am).
It actually starts even before I put my head on the pillow at 11pm. I discovered I needed a pre-bedtime routine of pure “Me” time: no phones, no running errands for people, no social media. If you snuck a peek at me you’d see me lying on my bed watching silly YouTube videos on my iPad. Some people have a “no electronics” policy before bed and I think that’s a good idea but in this case my iPad isn’t getting in the way of my sleep.
