If I look at the days when I’m in beast mode aka deep work or working out it’s cos, bottom line I’ve got some real good shut eye the night before.
It’s not always a straight line but when it’s possible and within one’s locus of control then its great for the taking.
Doing that repeatedly comes down to a ritual.
Here’s Shawn Steveon’s take on that…
“The word ritual is derived from the Latin word ritus meaning ‘a proven way of doing something.’ A ritual is a small sequence of step-by-step actions that put you in a certain mood, state or frame of mind for getting something done. Whether or not you’ve had a history of sleep problems, a regular bedtime ritual will help you wind down and prepare your body for the best sleep possible. Jessica Alexandra of The Sleep Council stated, ‘A bedtime ritual teaches the brain to become familiar with sleep times and wake times. It programs the brain and internal body clock to get used to a set routine.”
