Your weekly challenge for Week 4 is to get at least 7 hours of sleep every day.
What does that mean? That means that every day, starting on your Sunday night to Monday morning sleep, you will accrue 7 hours of sleep daily. You will begin scoring yourself for this weekly challenge on Tuesday when you record your score for Monday and finish scoring yourself the following Monday when you are scoring yourself for Sunday (the sleep that you got from Saturday night to Sunday morning).
If you don’t get a full 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep, you may accumulate the remainder during the day with a nap
You may count the beginning of your night’s sleep when you turn off the lights
Suggested practice: don’t use your bed for watching TV or reading. If you train your mind that the bed is where you go to fall asleep, you are more likely to fall asleep more easily.
Suggested practice: Set a strict bedtime and stick to it. Don’t let your shows stop you — Tivo them!
Suggested practice: If you can, don’t set an alarm and sleep until you wake. You may be surprised to find just how much sleep your body needs!
Suggested practice: Start exposing yourself to less artificial light as the evening progresses. Blue light that is emitted by artificial light signals daytime to your brain.
Suggested practice: Practice meditation or mindfulness right before going to bed to “cool” your brain off before trying to sleep.
