Are you tired and groggy every morning, which likely leads to you not performing at your best throughout the day? Is one of your most overused phrases this: "I'm tired."
It's okay if you said "yes," because a lot of people are going through their days tired, and even sleep deprived. So many people make most of their sacrifices -- well, at least when it comes to time, that is -- in the sleep department. They think they can just wake up an hour earlier or stay up an hour later and knock out important tasks/catch up on work.
If you are tired all the time, or more often than not, then you need to look at your sleep schedule. Do you even have a sleep schedule?
Don't just ballpark this number. Start going to bed at the same time every night and waking up at the same time every morning. If you do this, then your body will get into the rhythm of waking up at the same time every day, which will lead to a couple of things: (1) You not being tired in the morning, and (2) you not hitting the snooze button like it is your job. But wait, there's more!
If you follow a sleep schedule every single day (yes, even on the weekends), then your body and mind will naturally feel tired around the same time every night. Why is this beneficial? Well, because it could drastically cut down on your tossing-and-turning time.
Being sleep deprived is not the proper way to go through life. Not only is it bad for productivity and work, but you won't enjoy things as much, or at all, if the only thing on your mind is sleep.
If you are looking for some all-star habits to help you get a better night's sleep, then let this article be your guide.
Being tired should not be a mystery, and you also shouldn't let it be an option. Stick to your schedules, and get the right amount of sleep every night. That's how you stay focused and on the right track, and alert/awake when you need to be.
