As daylight savings ends, your body will naturally want to sleep an hour earlier than what you would usually sleep - in regards to the time displayed. Rather than try and stay awake for that extra hour to sleep at your regular time, many of us would benefit from increasing the amount of sleep we get.
I am also guilty of spending many years as part of "team no-sleep" and only recently made a conscious effort to better my sleep patterns.
Here are some facts:
Studies on well-being and happiness ranked sleep in the top 3 criteria.
Studies directly linked sleep deprivation/sleep debt with significant increases in likelihoods of depression and anxiety.
Studies showed that lack of sleep weakens your immune system to a point where you are 45% more likely to get sick than someone who gets an average of 7+ hours of sleep.
If you want to achieve your goals of being a better athlete, better student, and overall better human being; you need to focus on rewiring the brain and body.
This involves eating the right food, surrounding yourself with the right people, exercising often and getting enough sleep! .
