The 30-Second Guide to Getting More Sleep (and Wanting to Wake Up for Work)

We all want more sleep, but getting a good seven hours every night is easier said than done. Yes, you know you should unplug from technology and hit the sheets at a reasonable hour, but you just can’t seem to find the time to do so. Maybe you’re caught up answering last-minute emails, or, if you’re like me, catching up on all the news (a.k.a., Facebook) that you missed during the day. And before you know it, 10 PM turns to 1 AM. Well, at least coffee will replace these hours of sleep you’re not getting, right?

Eh, not quite. But, in just 30 seconds, Gretchen Rubin—author and LinkedIn Influencer—gives you four real tips on how to actually get more sleep. You’ll finally stop hitting the snooze button and head into work feeling refreshed and awake.
