Making Time for Sleep

Posted by medliorator on December 8, 2008

1. Put work early in the day. If you’re working until 2 a.m. on a regular basis, it’s probably because you don’t manage your time well. Move work into earlier hours in the morning. This will put less pressure on you to stay up all night to finish.
2. Set a bed time. Sounds childish, but it works. If you currently go to bed whenever you feel like it, there’s a good chance you’ll keep pushing your day later and later into the night. Humans didn’t evolve with electric lighting, so you can’t just trust your body for when the best time to sleep is.
3. Get rid of the caffeine. Caffeine is a band-aid.
