Why We DON’T Sleep - +1 | Optimize

Top 10 Sleep Kryptonites.

1. Simply not valuing sleep

2. Inconsistency

3. Screens. Solution: Digital sunset!

4. Anxiety.

5. Caffeine. Caffeine works because it basically masks your fatigue. It has a half-life of 5-6 hours—which means that if you have 100 mg of caffeine at 4:00 pm, around half of that caffeine is still having a party in your brain at 10:00 pm. Not helpful for sleep. Solution: Create a caffeine curfew. Stop consumption after 2:00 (or noon) (or whatever is your ideal).

6. Alcohol

7. Tobacco

8. Eating too late

9. Exercising too late

10. Suboptimal sanctuary. Your sleep environment matters. A lot. Key things to Optimize? Temperature should be around 65 degrees. It should be SUPER dark. Blackout curtains for the win. And, of course, make it quiet.

Book Summary: Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport

  2. Digital Declutter: A practice in which you define your technology rules, take a thirty-day break, and reintroduce technology.
  3. Solitude Deprivation: A state in which you spend close to zero time alone with your own thoughts and free from input from other minds.
  4. The Social Media Paradox: Social media makes you feel both connected and lonely, happy and sad.
  5. The Bennett Principle: A practice in which you prioritize demanding activity over passive consumption, use skills to produce valuable things in the physical world, and seek activities that require real-world, structured social interactions.'
