Yes I should sleep around 7 to 9 hours every night… and you should too, but my average is around 7 to 7.30h.
I tried a few times to sleep with relaxing music but I was unable to fall asleep. I’m much more good at falling asleep without any input from the “outside” world.
But I want to try a few new things to improve my sleep:
- drinking cold water right before bed
- meditation just before sleep o a few minutes to think about the day, the next one and my current position in my life
- sleeping only 6 hours with a small nap of 20 minutes when I’m falling sleep just before 22:30am
- tracking my sleep with Sleep Better Runtastic because fitbit sleep tracking doesn’t have all the features that I want, can’t easily understand my quantity of REM sleep
