5 TopMind tips to SLEEP better

This is probably the sleepiest blog I’ve written so far...


But before we all doze off, I first would like to announce our new initiative. TopMind aims to help as many people as possible to improve the Fitness of their Minds. We do this through blogs, videos, quotes and other content which contributes to your TopMind. 

Our TopMind Methodology is characterized by an uncomplicated and practical approach. We are more focused on the 'show how’ in practice than the 'know how’ in theory. We help people transform ideas and theory into new effective habits. When tips and ideas transform into automatic behavior is when the benefits really kick-in.

Hence our new experiment: TOPMIND TEMPLATES! These A5 info sheets are small on-the-go sheets with the most practical information about everyday issues such as stress, sleep, energy, goal setting, etc. You can print them out, pop them in your bag, put on your desk or any prominent place where you’ll see them often. Thus, you’ll be inspired to transform ideas and intent into new effective habits.


This week in our first TopMind Template the topic is: SLEEP. 

I often ask my clients: If you had only one wish to boost your performance and wellbeing, what would that wish be?

I often ask my clients: If you had only one wish to boost your performance and wellbeing, what would that wish be? A lot of them wish for good high-quality sleep. And even for those who think they are getting a good night’s sleep, I would urge you to wish for the same…. Sleep is the most important 'battery recharger'. We all know the importance of getting enough exercise and good nutrition, you can skimp on these from time to time if you like but do not deprive yourself of a proper night’s sleep

This morning a client came to our office with the comment: ‘I had 6 hours of deep sleep.’

The good news: the influence we have over the quality of our sleep is larger than we think. 

This morning a client came to our office with the comment: ‘I had 6 hours of deep sleep.’ This client has a fancy watch that apparently allows you to track this. Super interesting! He experiences the benefits of good and healthy sleep on his performance and wellbeing. Before the TopMind program, he slept on average 2 to 3 hours deeply and has now doubled this.

I asked him to explain what he's doing differently now and what contributes to a better night’s sleep. 

This was his answer (his 5 effective sleeping habits):

  1. I do not watch television, or look at laptop or phone screens after 9 PM
  2. I play sports frequently (3x a week) but at a much lower intensity than I did before
  3. I do a 10-minute breathing exercise just before bedtime.
  4. I write down 3 positive points at the end of my working day.
  5. Weekly, I set my goals and study my schedule for the week ahead, and daily, I prepare for the next day.
