Ah, to sleep, perchance to dream. If you have trouble settling down at night because your mind is racing, you need to first determine what is keeping you up at night. Are you trying to remember your to-do list for the next day? Is your mind brimming with ideas for a big project you are in the midst of? Sleep deprivation is serious — it can lead to weight gain, memory loss, and chronic disease. And, of course, it steals energy and productivity from the next day—so you don’t get as much done, and the cycle starts all over again.
