5 Sleep Habits of Successful People

We very often underestimate the benefits of having a great night’s sleep. A good rest can rejuvenate you for the day ahead and fuel your potential. A lot of successful people don’t get a lot of sleep, but the most successful know the true benefit of resting up. Here are some great sleep habits.

Turn everything off

It may be tempting to scroll through your Facebook feed or see what Reddit has to say before you go to bed, but this actually isn’t a great idea for multiple reasons.

First and foremost, the bright lights of your phone, tablet or laptop disrupt your sleep pattern. They trick your body into thinking it’s still daytime, causing it to prepare for work rather than sleep. This prevents chemicals from being released that usually help in the process of falling asleep.

It’s also easy to get lost in browsing news feeds on your phone. It’s always tempting to read one more article or message one more friend. Before you know it, an hour has passed - which is an hour less sleep you’ll end up getting. Turn everything off before bed!

Meditate

Meditation is an amazing way to centre yourself and calm down in preparation for a deep, fulfilling sleep. This will help reduce stress and anxiety, allowing you to sleep more quickly and more deeply.

If you haven’t mediated before, you can always look up some great guides online. You can also consider playing some calming background music, to help put you in the mood! Find a quiet, secluded place in your house and meditate for half an hour before bed. Oprah is a huge fan of pre-sleep meditation!

Read before bed

Bill Gates always recommends reading a book for an hour before bed. Go to the library or local bookstore and pick out something that looks interesting each week!

Not only is reading an extremely entertaining and sometimes educational way to end your day, but regular reading has proven to improve the long term health of your brain. Stimulating your book with literary is akin to working out your mental side.

Go for a walk

While it may seem like a counterproductive activity before going to sleep, many people recommend going for a relaxing walk before bed. This is a nice way to unwind and get out of the house/office before nodding off.

Walking can help you calm down, collect your thoughts and slowly transition into a state for sleeping. This is particularly relevant if you are extremely busy with work and find it difficult to simply slide into bed.

Not only is it great for relaxation, but some studies have shown that walking stimulates creativity. You might just solve that problem you’ve been struggling with all day!

Plan your next day

One of the best ways to spend your last few moments of awake time is to plan your next day. We all do this in some manner, no doubt, but a great way to improve the productivity of this process is to formalise it.

Every night, set yourself three objectives for the next day. This is something recommended by the CEO of American Express. That way you will feel immediately more focused and directed when you wake up. This will allow you to manage your time more effectively, and maybe even get some more sleep the next day too!

These are some great tips for people who are looking to improve their sleeping habits, taking note from successful business leaders. More sleep makes for increased productivity and a happier life!
