Time Planning for Better Sleep (Part 1)


This is the first part of a two-part series on how you can use time planning and sleep to help you be the best you that you can be.


We know that optimum quality and quantity of sleep determines how productive your day is. Did you know that how you plan and execute your day, will determine how well you sleep? And the better you sleep, the more productive your day will be.


Let us just rewind a bit: It is a bold statement. But if we think about it, it makes perfect sense.

During thousands of years, our bodies have evolved to follow a natural 24-hour light/dark cycle. Humans are designed to naturally fall asleep when it becomes dark and naturally wake up when the sun rises. We can see this as our natural, built-in master clock which we call our circadian rhythm. If we want to be more productive, we have to keep our circadian rhythm in mind. Our circadian rhythm is a natural process inside our bodies that regulates our sleep/wake cycle. The circadian rhythm repeats or resets roughly every 24 hours and is regulated by sunlight.
