My Sleep Data
Keeping track of my sleep is like measuring my weight, it is a great awareness tool.
I try not to make decisions when I am moody or upset.
My best intentions are around making good habits.
Regulating sleep is like sleighing down a good hill. You want a clear route, good sleigh and good intentions.
You know I have good intentions, going to sleep means my body has proper nutrition, exercise and a good sleep environment. So if all goes well during the night, I usually get a good sleep like the above data shows.
I also keep a sleep journal. Among other things, I keep notes daily about my progress, problems and answers. The journal also reflects my mood, intentions and thoughts. Today it was short: I had a pretty good sleep. I stick to the same stuff I need to do to sleep well. I go to bed at the same time and get up the same time each day. I dress the same for bed. Same room ambiance: darkness, temperature, quiet, etc. I don’t snack too close to my bed time. In fact, I try not to snack at all.
So, I am not on a light maintenance cycle. But by doing all the above, my goal is to get a good routine for healthy sleep each night. Most people already do all the above. But if your sleep needs improvement, some of these habits can help regulate a good nights sleep.
