Most people know it’s important to get 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night, but few people have a evening routine in place to make sure of it. As it turns out, what you do before bed each night makes a profound impact on how quickly you fall asleep, your sleep quality and your energy levels and drive the next day.
Can you imagine how different our world would look today if Thomas Edison gave up after the thousands of failed attempts at making a working lightbulb?
Or if Beethoven quit making music once he’d gone deaf?
