There’s nothing better than getting a good night’s sleep, and nothing worse than not.

It’s worth spending time thinking about the most optimal sleeping situations–from what you should wear to bed, how you should do your hair, to what you should eat and drink before, and of course, what time you should set your alarm for, whether you should hit snooze–and of course, what time to go to bed.

For this reason, staying up past 9pm only makes us more prone to anxious thoughts–which, everyone knows are a recipe for a sleepless night!
