Track Your Sleep
You have some homework to do before officially getting started.
You’ve got to start tracking your sleep.
Even though you may not realize this, not all nights are the same. Chances are some nights are better than others.
But if you aren’t keeping track, you’ll never know for sure.
Do you sleep better on weekends versus weekdays?
Is it easier to fall and stay asleep in a cooler room?
After a week or two, you should start noticing patterns.
Love Your Bed
You have the power to train your brain to love your bed. You just need to learn the right skills.
A very popular tip is to reserve your bed for sleeping and only sleeping.
We get it. A lot of people like working or watching TV in bed. But doing so can make it harder to fall asleep.
The main goal is to teach your brain to associate going to bed with sleeping.
