I suck at sleeping, and I suck at getting up when I have to:
I want to stop going to bed at ridiculous hours in the early morning. I want to get up after a reasonable (but not excessive) amount of sleep and feel great, and I don’t want to put much effort into doing it. I feel I’m not alone in this quest: nerds, designers and technology enthusiasts often fall victim to bad sleep patterns. I tried to take a few very easy steps to improve my own sleep quality, with the intention of sharing it here for you guys to enjoy too. I think I’ve succeeded.
Here's my article for The Industry, where I share a few simple tips whcih have helped me sleep better and wake up easier. I think they'll help you, too.
Of course, I'm not a scientist, but I can give you my word that these are worth trying if you suffer from sleep issues. Seriously.
