- Eat the last meal of the day at least 2 hours away from bedtime. (Blood can then be used for brain repair instead of digestion).
- Put cell phones on airplane mode while asleep. (Prevents it from irradiating nearby asleep persons).
- Stand on or hold a small piece of aluminum foil for 1-2 minutes just before falling asleep. (Discharges excess electricity from the body).
- Don't sleep near live wall outlets. (Radiating electricity from the wall can also disrupt sleep).
- Stop looking at bright screens and being exposed to bright lights within one hour of bed. (Bright light tells the brain to stop producing melatonin).
- Use sleepyti.me to set an alarm for an exact time in which you're not in the middle of a sleep cycle to prevent drowsiness when waking. (Waking up in the middle of a deep or rapid-eye-movement sleep phase is what makes us feel like a ton of bricks are on our eyelids when we first wake up).
*it's not that I find these to be "easy" per say, but rather that they offer the best bang for the buck.
