How to Sleep Better

Bookmark and Share
  1. You go to bed.
  2. You can't sleep until X hours later.
  3. You wake up with 5 hours of sleep.

You're tired/groggy/unproductive for the rest of the day.

You continue with the process for X weeks/months/years.

Why Do You Suck at Sleeping?

Take Bob.

  1. Bob chill-axes during the day.
  2. He doesn't push himself.
  3. He doesn't sweat/work-out/push-himself.

He spends his day relaxing/resting/chill-axing (because dude says he's tooooooooooo tired "cuz I couldn't sleep last night!") -- so at night, he can't sleep because he's already too rested.

Read that moforo%$^^^%$^ again:

  • He's too rested.
  • He's too rested.
  • He's too rested.

When you're too rested, you convert your resting time for sleep to your waking life.

As a result:

  • Bob's never fully rested.
  • Bob doesn't fully energize himself to completely annihilate his tasks.

Instead, groggy Bob starts perpetuating the cycle of S.U.C.K.:

  1. too-rested-so-can't-sleep
  2. tired-during-the-day-so-can't-DO
  3. too-rested-so-can't-sleep
  4. tired-during-the-day-so-can't-DO
  5. etc., etc., etc., etc.

The cycle of monster destruction makes Bob tired all-the-^^@^^@-time.

How Do You Sleep Better?

During your waking days:

  • Push yourself.
  • Strain yourself.
  • Exhaust yourself.

For instance:

  • Getting in a full day of work productively completing ridiculous tasks will tire your waking days; therefore, you channel your rest to sleep like a freak.
  • Strenuously running X miles exhausts your energies during the day, letting you sleep GOOD.

Flash Back

...to the last time you took an outdoor vacation:

  • "I slept so well last night because I was tired from too much skiing!"
  • "I slept so well last night because yesterday's hike exhasted me!"

Or, the time you worked productively GOOD:

  • "I slept so well last night because of the yesterday's 9876987956875969 presentations we did!"

Work Yourself

Forcing yourself to work/tire/exhaust during the day?

  1. Get more things done
  2. Sleep better.
  3. Rest better.
  4. Increase energy.
  5. Repeat energized cycle.

You start pushing yourself out of the too-rested-phase, and hop on the cycle of productive goodness.
