Tips for good sleeping

  • If I have to wake-up with an alarm, the alarm will only go off once. I will not snooze. 

  • Room temperature: 18.3 degrees

  • Black-out curtains or blinds

  • Do not fall asleep on the couch

  • Stop eating at least 2 hours before going to bed. 

“Sleep is the third pillar of good health, alongside diet and exercise.” I have changed my tune. Sleep is more than a pillar; it is the foundation on which the other two health bastions sit.
