All too often I hear about people not getting enough sleep. Some people tell me they function fine on 4 hours of sleep a night, or that they sleep with the TV on. That’s just silly to me. Your body needs sleep to repair, recover, and maintain. In our house, sleep is precious to us. Sleep controls not only the way you feel the next day, but also food production and reproduction within our body, and of course mental stress. I will elaborate on sleep in the future, but for now, here are the sleep rules we abide by:
- The room must be completely black. No artificial light anywhere.
- No cell phones or computers after 9pm (I would say TV but we don’t own a TV).
- Eight hours a sleep a night is mandatory. In the fall and winter it should be a bit longer because the days are actually shorter.
- Sleep in little to no clothes. You should want to cuddle.
- Develop a sleep routine. Train your body.
