Successful people are a bit different than others. They have their own habits and ways to get things done. We already said a lot about them, but it’s never enough to learn. Therefore, this time we will talk about successful people and their nocturnal habits. It might seem like a joke, but it is very important to understand that every step of your day shapes your tomorrow.
The last thing you do before going to bed greatly affects your tomorrow’s mood and energy level and often determines how long and well you will sleep. Successful people realize that their success begins and ends with their mental and physical health, which is almost entirely dependent on how long and quality they sleep. For this reason, all routine before bedtime is very important.
Here’s what all the successful people do before they fly in the dreamland:
Successful people read
Experts have agreed that reading is the habits of many successful people. It can boost you in a lot of different aspects and enrich your brain with useful stuff. Former US President Barrack Obama reads at least half an hour before bedtime every night.
They’re not thinking about business
Indeed, successful people are thinking of everything, but not about business before going to bed. They do not check their emails or obsessively spin their problems at work. Research has shown that you will find it harder to relax in bed if you connect it to work so it is essential that you only use this space for sleep and sex. Give at least half an hour break before reading the last post and going to sleep.
They do not use technology
If you already choose not to read emails before you sleep, you can not play games or check social networks instead. Scientists agree that watching cell phones, tablets or computers is bad for your dreams: the screen light sends a message to the brain as if it’s a day. In other words, it disrupts the level of melatonin – the hormone that regulates your circadian rhythm. In this way, your body will lose its “sleep and wake cursor” so it will not know when to turn off and when it is active. This can lead to serious problems such as insomnia, vision problems, depression, and tumors.
Successful people plan to sleep
Much is known about the bad consequences of sleep deficits, so one of the most successful habits among us is the dream planning. Priority should always be enough sleep, and you can ensure that you plan to do so when you are in bed. One way is to always sleep at the same time, and the other is that when you have to stand up you simply calculate when you have to lie to have enough sleep and then go to bed.
They hold evening body hygiene
Evening hygiene sends our minds message to get ready for sleep so our body also behaves in accordance with that information. This most often involves toothpaste, facial scrubs, flushing or combing hair, but also some unusual rituals. For example, Stephen King washes his hands every day before bed and put cushions on the bed in a special way.
