Day 3447 – The Secret To Getting Good Sleep

One of the bigger changes in our lives was getting more sleep. There are a few things we’ve started to do or stopped doing to achieve this.

Honestly, the biggest thing is sleeping on the floor. I realize it’s not for everyone but I get the best sleep sleeping on the floor.

One of the most important parts of that good night sleep is starting the night before. One thing I do is writing my to-do list for the next day. Sometimes this is done a week in advance because some things in my workday are the same. I have a stack of seven yellow pads for each day. Knowing I have those lists really does keep my mind at rest.

Some nights, if we happen to go to sleep at the same time, we’ll spend some time sharing what we’re thankful for. We try to go to bed at a reasonable hour or pushing our wakeup time to make sure we get the full night we need.

Sleep is one of those areas that we try to be very serious about. Not getting enough can cause so many problems, it’s just not worth the “short-term gains.”

What is your secret to good sleep?

Day 3230 – Secret To Success – Get A Good Night Sleep And Get Up Stupid Early

One thing that has helped us over the last year or so is getting a good night of sleep. We’ve also continued to get up stupid early. Most days, we’re out of bed by 5:00/5:30. It’s crazy how much you can accomplish by 9:00 when you get up that early. I’ve added a number of things into my morning routine, but I still have time to do it all because of getting up early.

Getting a good night sleep and having a great day starts the night before. We spend time expressing our thankfulness about our life, cuddling, and enjoying each other’s presence (it seriously rocks being married to your best friend….and working with your best friend). We also try to write out our to do lists the night before. It really helps your brain to know what the next day will bring, and to shut off “work brain” by writing things down.

We also try to get to sleep at a reasonable hour…we’re typically in bed by 8:30/9:00. Sure, it’s not super exciting, but the things we have accomplished over the past few months and years far outweigh the “this is a ‘boring’ life” thoughts.
