Day 1 - Sleep
Time to kick off your 12 days of optimisation! Let's start with one of the most under-rated yet powerful ways to have a happier, healthier, optimised life...Sleep.
We're talking hard-core sleep here.
For the next 12 days AIM for 8 hours minimum per night. Follow these rules:
- Calculate 8 hours before you need to get up and set an alarm for 20 minutes before that. When the bedtime alarm goes off - get to bed.
- Put your phone on flight mode prior to bed so you won't have beeps and buzzes during the night. (Can't do that? Put it on 'Do not Disturb').
- Darken your room - as dark as possible during sleeping hours.
It's so easy to dismiss the importance of sleep. Right through the 80's and 90's we were all trained to work maximum hours and those living on little sleep were 'heroes'. Well, that sleep deprived hero crap is catching up with all of us.
Don't get sucked in. A lack of sleep is uncool. Good quality (not quantity) is about recovery, learning and optimal mental and physical performance. You just can't be your best on poor quality sleep.
