Tech Tools for Better Sleep

Tech Tools for Better Sleep

Every now and then, one of these posts gets out of the gate before it’s quite ready. It’s ironic that this one left today because I haven’t been getting much sleep lately, as we head into the launch of my third book, Organizing Your Kitchen with SORT and Succeed. It’ll be available to download for free from Amazon next Monday and Tuesday, 11/5 and 6. I hope you’ll download it then. Perhaps it’ll be just what you need to get your kitchen ready for the holidays. If you do read it, please kindly leave a review to help others find it.

When I’m in the process of writing and publishing a book, I get so into the project that my sleep usually suffers. It’s a blessing to have projects that I get so excited about like that. You might have similar sleep issues. 

Of course, sleep problems come in all forms.Some of us can’t get to sleep. Some can’t stay asleep. Some would sleep just fine if our kids/ partner/ cat/ dog would just behave, for Pete’s sake.

We’ve probably all heard the advice to keep smartphones and electronic devices about of the bedroom. But I also started noticing a new crop of smart alarm clocks and apps to track and monitor sleep. I, myself, listen to podcasts, with the screen off and the sound so low it forces me to lay absolutely still to listen. Getting into the podcasts story stops my mind from running my own tasks through my head, and relaxes me enough to drop off to sleep. It made me start wondering  if tech tools can actually help us sleep better, and here’s what I’ve found so far:

Book Review: essentialism By Greg McKeown

Distill the story to only the lead idea. Prioritize. Select the most important and pursue it . Focus on the top ten percent. Forget minimalism, and embrace essentialism.
