    5 years ago, heck, 2 years ago, I would’ve disagreed with your post but today, I’m 100% with you on this one. I’ve always underestimated the power of a good night’s rest (typically getting more than 7 hours of sleep) and that’s why I’d usually get around 4-6 hours of sleep, thinking that I’d get more done by sleeping less. The truth is, last year I realized how much more I could get done with 8 hours of sleep because I have more energy to do what I want in less time. Though, coffee is still in the picture, haven’t taken that out of the mix. There are still work nights where I stay up til 1-2am for no real reason, but I’m making it habit to sleep earlier!

The next morning I would have a hard time waking up and be easily distracted all day. It was becoming a barrier in my life (click here to read The Three Reasons Why You Should Sleep More) and to my success (click here to read How to Sleep Your Way to Success). […]

Week 1 may be to research and create an exercise and nutrition plan. Week 2 may be to start plan and track results every 3 days. Then I will further break down my weekly tasks into daily tasks. I may plan that on Day 1 of Week 1, I will research effective exercise routines that I can do at home. Day 2 of Week 1 may be to learn more about diet and weight loss from the internet.
