Sleep rules. Now that I wake up at 3am, getting a good night's sleep is CRUCIAL to performing a flawless morning show.

I'm still adjusting. Duh, amirite?

Ten Commandments to a Perfect Night's Sleep

  1. Thou Shalt Clean Thy Room: less clutter = gooder sleep
  2. Thou Shalt Set Thy Thermostat to 61 degrees: it might seem cold, but if you have good blankets you'll be good to go!
  3. Thou Shalt Keep Thy Sheets Fresh: my best sleep happens on fresh sheets!
  4. Thou Shalt Not Sleep Nude: you know what? Screw that. GET NAKED!
  5. Thou Shalt Keep Thy Room As Black As Thou's Soul: no lights, no TV.
  6. Thou Shalt Get INTO Bed at a Reasonable Time: give yourself time to fall asleep as well as getting 7-8 hours of shuteye.
  7. Thou Shalt Put Thine Phone Down: at least half an hour before you close your eyes
  8. Thou Shalt Read a Real Book: not from your phone or tablet, but a real book. See: Commandment #7 (did you forget ALREADY?! You must be tired!)
  9. Thou Shalt Not Sleep On Your Wrong Side: supposedly sleeping on your RIGHT (get it?) side with your legs curled up is ideal for perfect sleep. K.
  10. Thou Shalt Sleep On Thy Own: don't spoon your partner and if at all possible, sleep in a separate bed altogether.

Who made these commandments? Hypnos might have something to say about not sleeping naked while spooning your partner.
