I just received a page that showed me related links :(

I do feel that getting quality sleep is a hugely underrated skill. It takes hard work to guarantee that you'll sleep well, so I guess it eliminates the fact it's a passive activity. I have done numerous things to improve my sleep (sleepio course, sleep phase alarm clock, CES machine, supplements...) and I'm finally at a place where I can say I'm happy with my sleep. It took me a long time of self-testing though!

I combine roughly five hours of sleep at night plus napping throughout the day to reach a total of six and a half to seven hours of sleep. It works but I'd like to get somewhat more sleep at night.

Have you heard of the bulletproof executive? That's where I first learned about sleep hacking and increasing the quality of my sleep. Dave Asprey has some really good, and some not so good, suggestions :)

I was then directed (by Hal Elrod) to a book by Shawn Stevenson called "21 proven tips to sleep your way to a better body, better health and bigger success."

The sleepio course was part a study I took part in for Oxford universities psychology department about the effects of sleep on students emotions. I didn't have to pay for it, but in hindsight, I would have. It was really good.

A lot of it comes down to tracking how well you sleep as you implement changes. One change at a time. You can take quantitative measurements of sleep phases, how many times you woke etc... or just qualitative. Seeing what works for you is key though.

Yeah I have thought about this a lot. I am always looking to improve in my sleep. There are so many ideas when it comes to sleeping and waking up refreshed. My personal keys would be:

1. Eating a light dinner and no combining of carbs and proteins in a dinner meal

2. Practicing getting up at the sound of your alarm. It is interesting how after practicing this about 20 times in a row, the next morning I just wake up and spring out of bed without the thought of sleeping a few more minutes. I found that Steve Pavlina's stuff on sleeping is very informative and probably the most insightful stuff I've come across.

3. Taking 20 minute naps when I am feeling tired.

Good sleep is a treasure. Unless you have good sleep you feel tired and listless the next day. The lifestyle of modern youth is pitiable. They lead a sedentary lifestyle.

They are awake till the early hours of morning and sleep through the afternoon. Follow a good sleep pattern and live a healthy life. Active life and relaxed mind induces deep sleep.
