A full and complete sleep pattern is 90 minutes. Your mind and body need to accomplish several 90-minute cycles.

Choose your number of 90-minute cycles that you want to accomplish and stick to it. Generally doing 4 or 5 cycles is what is best for you.
2# Don’t Eat just before Sleeping
This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. If you eat before sleeping, your body will trigger all your digestion mechanisms and you will spend a lot of energy to digest the aliments you just ate.
But it is even worse than that…
Your body is not made to digest food in a laying position. You will consume extra energy to do so.
So what is the point of sleeping to have your energy back, if you spend it during your whole night ?
Think about it and don’t eat anything at least 1 hour before you sleep.
