I like this.
It comes from fitness guy turned productivity expert, Craig Ballantyne.
Here it is…
The 10-3-2-1 rule.
No caffeine 10 hours before bed.
No food or alcohol 3 hours before bed.
No work 2 hours before bed.
No technology 1 hour before bed.
If there’s one I’m a little lax on it’s no food 3 hours before bed.
Just the nature of my days I guess.
I get home late and I’m often still short of my protein and calorie goals so I’ll raid my fridge. It’s good eats, and usually still two hours before bed, so close enough. I also happen to think if you’re more than a little hungry by that point, you should eat, even if it’s just 15-20 snacktacular almonds.
Also, further comment on the caffeine thing…
I used to drink coffee at 3pm or 4pm and not have it disrupt my sleep.
It does now.
And it took me a while to clue in to that little fact.
I share this because one’s metabolism can change.
Be open to changing with it.

It may not be Oz, but there is a wizard to be found there. 😉
