__Ideal hours of sleep:__
Around 8 hours. If I taught classes early in the morning I’ll take a powernap around 11:00 or 12:00. That’s around the time that I’m sitting on the couch and notice that I need to close my eyes for a small half an hour. I love a quick nap, it gets me through the rest of the day!

Also, before I lay in bed I try to put away my phone. Instead I’ll read a book, right now I’m reading Mythos by Stephen Fry. Other days I’ll listen to my Headspace meditation app. You have special settings for sleeping and by the time the mediation has ended I’m sound asleep, perfect!
