I recently came across this very interesting quote on one of my favorite websites explore:
The amount of sleep you get predicts the discipline your body can produce. Why? Sleep deprivation depletes the glucose level in your pre-frontal cortex, Barnes writes. This has consequences for your decision-making: If you don’t get enough sleep, you leave your self-control engine running on empty. If you do get enough sleep, you restore that fuel base.

I knew that sleep was important, I knew that I always felt better after a good night’s rest, and made better choices as a result.
I just didn’t have a clue as to why that was the case.
If you are interested in the full research study on what was discovered you can check out details on the study.
Now that that is clear, did you know that it is really easy to tap for good night’s sleep?
Here is how I tap for a good night of sleep. The link will take you to the tapping script I use before I go to sleep and also a pdf you can print out and put on your nightstand so you don’t forget to do it.
Tap for a good night’s sleep.
Get a good night’s sleep.
Improve glucose levels in your pre-frontal cortex.
Make better choices tomorrow.
Do it tonight: Tap for a good night of sleep!
