You should go to bed earlier than you probably think.
This is more true if you work full-time.
And even more true if you have children.
Having children under the age of three probably turns this exponential.
Plus you know – lack of sleep causes cancer – they have discovered.
When I find myself getting stressed or burned out, I usually notice a common trend. I’m spending too much time on my phone, not enough time reading…in the evenings most of all. I heard a good rule recently related to this: At the end of the day, when you’re fried and feel like you can’t do anything but sit there and watch TV (or scroll on social), you know what you should do? You should go to bed. You’re tired! Go to sleep! I would just add to that that a few minutes of reading before you shut off the lights can be the perfect part of the transition.
