This productivity “hack” feels like a superpower

You’ve seen the craze of productivity hacks in the last few years…

This craze has become extremely popular with the rise of AI and ChatGPT. But there’s one hack that barely anybody talks about.

A hack that we ALL have access to. One that doesn’t involve any technology.

It’s a hack that puts all other hacks to shame and when you start using it, it feels like you’ve unlocked a superpower…

This hack is going to sound extremely simple once I reveal it, but it’s important to read on and fully understand its power…

To start, think about where you day begins and where your day ends…

In bed.

And what happens before your day begins and after it ends?

Sleep. Sleep is the superpower-like hack I’m talking about.

Alongside food, water, and oxygen, sleep is a vital component in your life that you simply couldn’t live without.

But it’s not just a necessity – your quality of sleep affects your well-being. Think about that for a second.

It’s not just about the amount of sleep you get—it’s about the quality of sleep you get in that time.

Poor sleep means less drive, more anxiety and frustration, lack of patience, lack of motivation, general fatigue, slower reflexes, and so much more…

But getting the right amount of good sleep will make each part of your life better!

Good sleep means better health, a more positive attitude, more motivation to propel you toward success in your career and relationships, more general happiness, and a better peak operating level, among other things…

That may all be obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people ignore the superpower of good sleep.

Do you get a good night’s sleep every night?

It’s not easy, but I’ll show you how to accomplish that starting with the obvious…

  • Don’t drink fluids right before bed.
  • Make your sleeping environment as dark as possible.
  • Avoid TV, the computer, and screen time for at least an hour before bed

Those are obvious tips, but I want to get into the more complex reasons for why people struggle to get a good level of sleep at night…

Let’s start with exercise…

Although you may think exercising will drain you and make you even more tired, it actually rejuvenates the body and if done at the wrong time can interrupt your sleep.

But you can use it as a natural way of increasing the need for sleep at the right times, instead of making yourself go to sleep when you have to.

And along the same lines, make sure you’re getting up and moving throughout the day. Many of us spend hours upon hours sitting at a desk each day. If you don’t allow your body to move, this inactivity makes us feel sluggish. Plus, it’s unhealthy in general! So take breaks from time to time to get up and stretch.

Next up: Stress…

One of the biggest adversaries of good sleep is anxiety and stress. You may have realized that when you lay your head down to go to sleep, you’re kept awake by the things weighing on your mind. Worrying equals a lack of good sleep.

Utilizing stress-relief techniques like meditation will promote better sleep and, in turn, a better life.

And finally, hydration…

The benefits of drinking enough water are virtually endless, and sleep is no exception. By making your organs work efficiently and providing 85% of what the brain is, water will help you maintain peak sleep quality.

Up your water intake to at least 8 glasses a day for improved sleep.

And make sure your diet isn’t causing you to suffer through a lack of good sleep. Eating a healthy diet, including breakfast, will lead to better sleep and a better life!

If you can master your sleep, you’ll unlock a superpower that’ll take you to new heights!
