The 10-3-2-1-0 Rule

10h before sleep – no caffeine
3h before sleep – no more eating
2h before sleep – no more work
1h before sleep – no more tv / tablet
0 times snoozing the alarm clock in the morning

So when I want to get to bed at around 22:00 (10pm) my schedule would look like the following

  • 12:00 – stop drinking caffee
  • 19:00 – stop eating
  • 20:00 – stop working
  • 21:00 – stop watching Netflix/Prime/Youtube
  • Stop snoozing the alarm clock when it rings at 6:00

After one week my experience is this:

  • 12:00 – stop drinking caffee
    • good and easy to do, I drink one cup in the morning and at max 2 cups at work
    • positive effect on my skin picking issue
  • 19:00 – stop eating
    • not as easy, sometimes I’m late from work
  • 20:00 – stop working
    • no-brainer, I rarely stay at work after 19:00
  • 21:00 – stop watching Netflix/Prime/Youtube
    • hard, hard, hard, at the moment I practice guitar / piano from around 19:30 till 21:00
  • Stop snoozing the alarm clock when it rings at 6:00
    • not working I still snooze between 2 to 5 times, so I get up at 6:30 minimum

Some tweeking

I shifted my sleep time from 22:00 – 6:00 to 22:30 – 6:30

  • 12:30 – stop drinking coffee
  • 19:30 – stop eating
  • 20:30 – stop working
  • 21:30 – stop watching Netflix/Prime/YouTube
  • Stop snoozing the alarm clock when it rings at 6:30
