That's it. 8 simple hours every day.
Sleep is something we do so often (spending almost a quarter of our lives asleep), but also something we get so wrong. You, my reader, are arriving at this guide because you have probably realized you don't sleep well at night. Maybe you have some poor habits, or have just ended a string of a few bad nights and want to get a fresh start on things.
About two years ago, I was in the very same position as you, dear reader. I was probably getting around 6 or 7 hours of sleep each night--waking up in the morning feeling extremely drowsy and un-rejuvinated. I would get up, and in my case, go to classes, and feel as if I hadn't slept at all. I decided to throw out everything I "knew"--or rather, didn't know--about sleep, and figure out how to spend that same amount of time in a wise way.
