Here's a pretty frickin awesome tip a reader just sent Trizle, especially if you're somebody who wakes up at random times:
- Choose a time you want to wake up.
- Go to sleep only when you feel tired.
- Repeat cycle.
That is, set an alarm clock, wake up at the same time each and every $&@#%+# day, and see your body react when it wants to sleep.
The first few days you'll want to jump off a cliff, but your mind, body, and soul will adapt to your wake up time.
For example, take Shishkabob.
Shishkabob + Sleep
- Shishkabob chooses a wake-up time of 4 a.m.
- Shishkabob finds himself tired by 8 p.m. so he goes to bed: "Ooooh. I feel so tired now. Ooooh. Ooooh."
Other nights, he goes to bed at 9 or 10 or whatevs, but he sticks to his 4 a.m. wake-up time, and listens to when his body tells him to sleep.
"No peeps bother me when I'm most energized!" Shishkabob screams, as Shishkabob starts finding his early mornings productively-awesome, getting more work done with exponentially less distractions.
The Good Sleep
We hear stories of superstars like Kobe, Buffett, and Gates waking up at ridiculous times, and then we all wonder HOWDOTHEYDOIT?
- Choose ideal wake up time.
- Stick to wake-up time like it's a one-legged juiced-up ostrich who just stole your breath mints and slapped your momma.
- Sleep when fatigued.
YOU WIN YOU WIN YOU WIN
Set wake time. Sleep whenevs.
