10 Days to Smart Sleep

Question. How’s your sleep?


Don’t ask.

Well, I managed five hours.

My mind races for half the night. 

I meant to go to bed early, but then I found this new show, and…

I fall asleep easily, but then I wake up in the middle of the night.


On the hierarchy of things you can do to maximize your wellbeing, sleep tops everything else.


A good night’s sleep is the foundation for a healthy, happy, productive existence. Although many people try, there’s no getting by on a few hours per night. Nor can you hack your way into thriving on less sleep than is biologically required.

We all desperately need a good night’s sleep, every night. As you slumber, your body recovers and makes repairs. Sleep is the time when your brain files away memories and does necessary housekeeping. You quite literally become stronger, smarter, and healthier while you sleep. Conversely, poor sleep habits lead to stress, cravings, weight gain, and serious chronic illness. It impacts your mood and makes it difficult to focus and be productive. You go through life in a daze.



Sleep should be everyone’s top priority. Yet, most adults — and even many kids — fail to get enough. We come to accept that high-quality sleep is out of our grasp. That’s simply not true. In fact, you can take concrete steps today to improve your sleep.

Sometimes you just need a kick in the proverbial pants to get started. This is yours. Ten days, ten easy changes to catapult you toward better sleep and all the benefits that come with it. Start now.
