Sleep Hygiene

Or lack thereof…

We were assigned 10 hours of sleep before our first exam and that is the last time I managed more than 8 hours of sleep in this program.

I need a better nights rest for memory and retention, mood, and keeping my brain generally spongy, pliable and absorbent.  So far just going to bed at the right time has failed.

http://sleepyti.me/ is something i’ve been experimenting with along with general good sleep hygiene:

  • Don’t sleep in the same place you work
  • Get enough water during the day
  • Meditate before bed
  • Exercise everyday (okay, this one needs some work)
  • Less sugar and caffeine

I can’t seem to eliminate my computer time right before bed and when I do manage it my mind is filled with code (pseudo code really… if I dreamt in syntax I might be a bit better at it by now).

I almost forgot to close those parentheses just now.

Until then:  sudo sleep
