How To Normalize Your Sleep Schedule In One Day

Question from a reader:

"Sebastian, do you have any suggestions on getting back on a regular sleep schedule after traveling/strange hours without resorting to melatonin supplements?"

Yeah. It's remarkably simple, actually.

Say you went from New York to Tokyo, so now you're waking up around dinnertime in Tokyo naturally, wanting to be awake all night, and sleep at the crack of dawn. Here's what you do:

You wake up like normal at 6PM Tokyo time, and then you make preparations and plans to stay up all night and all of the next day, and you put yourself into places/situations where you physically couldn't sleep.

Waking up Early

On Oh come on

Though I've historically been a night owl, I've finally accepted how important waking up early is to my productivity. I just don't get shit done at night. By waking up early I effectively extend my possible working hours.

It also places me in a far more productive mindset. If I sleep in, I feel like a slacker, and that bleeds into the rest of my day. Waking up early, I feel like a Productive Person who's ready to kick ass. I'm going to start setting my alarm for 7 AM, but I hope to wake up naturally by going to sleep early, which has always been a huge issue for me, so I've adopted a grab bag of tactics to help with that, which I'll post separately.
