I would always deprioritize sleep, stay up late, wake up early. And honestly, it was one of the most stupid things I did.
These days I make sure to get at least 7 hours of sleep. So that’s for the duration of sleep, doesn’t say much on the quality though.
So for quality I have this simple 3, 2, 1 rule:
- 3 hours before sleep: no food.
- 2 hours before sleep: no drinks.
- 1 hour before sleep: no screens.
I’ve been doing this for a while now and it significantly improved my sleep quality. I wake up more rested and I’m more productive during the day.
