"How to Improve Your Sleep: Tips for Those Who Don't Sleep Well"

Updated: Mar 29

It's well documented how important this is, and no matter how much you feel like you're "wasting a third of your life" you'd be wasting a whole lot more if you don't get it right.


It's true that some people can function off <5 hours sleep, but research suggests this is genetic trait possessed by less than 5% of the population.


You mere mortals should be aiming for between 7 & 9 hours per night.

Quality is just as important as quantity, if not more (as per usual).


So what steps can you take?


• Sleep in a dark room;

• Sleep in a cool room; ideally ~17° C

• No electronic stimulus during sleep

• Free from audio distraction


As well as what you do during sleep, your routine Pre-Bed will have a large impact on quality.


• Try to create a pattern or routine that you repeat every evening before bed

° Aim to get to bed at the same time each day

° No electronic stimulus for at LEAST 30 minutes before you intend to drop off

° Be well hydrated before (but not so much you're going to need to wake up to pee)

° Buy a daylight alarm clock; this lights up the room gradually, and using sounds from nature to create a more humanistic circadian rhythm


Maximise your performance, and your lifestyle, by perfecting your sleep.
