1. Pay it out. Don’t shortchange your body when it comes to sleep. For every 30 minutes of sleep that you lose, your sleep debt increases. As you accumulate more sleep debt, you will begin to see and feel the short term and long term effects. Not getting enough sleep affects your mood, your heath and your overall performance. The average person needs about 8 hours of sleep every night. The ideal amount is anywhere from 7.5 hours to 8.5 hours. It is important to get the same amount of sleep every night so that your body can get acclimated to a normal schedule.

2. Evaluation time. Do you remember when you had to fill out performance evaluations for your professors when you were still in school? Well, it’s time to go back to the performance evaluation basics. Except, this time you won’t be evaluating your professors…you’ll be evaluating your performance. Also, evaluate the performance of your mattress. Although physical signs may not be evident, think about how it affects the quality of sleep that you get. Is it as comfortable as when you bought it? Does it still support your entire body? The age of your mattress directly affects the quality of sleep you get.

3. The bedroom.
Your bedroom should be used for certain things, and certain things only. Keep this room uncluttered and free of “knick-knacks.” Don’t use your bedroom for other purposes like folding the laundry, a second office, etc. In order to provide the ideal atmosphere for sleeping, your bedroom should be a warm, inviting and relaxing space.

4. No more caffeine. Studies show that caffeine directly interferes with “getting a restful night’s sleep and waking refreshed in the morning.” As you begin getting ready for bed, stay away from anything with caffeine in it. This includes chocolate, tea, coffee and soft drinks.

5. Invest. One of the most important investments you will ever make will be your mattress. The average person spends approximately 1/3 of his/her lifetime asleep. Don’t scrimp when it comes to a good quality mattress. Choose a mattress that is completely comfortable and supportive for your individual body. Spending more money on a good mattress will provide you with health, happiness and productivity.

Getting a good night’s sleep isn’t hard anymore. Simply follow these easy tips to improve your sleep and your productivity.
