When you want to have a balanced lifestyle, everything begins with having good-quality sleep. If you haven’t slept very well, everything can be irritating, and that can quickly ruin the day.

The principle of the ’10-3-2-1-0’ method

-10 hours before bed: don’t have caffeine

-3 hours before bed: don’t eat or drink alcohol

-2 hours before bed: stop working

-1 hour before sleeping:switch off all your screens (TV, computer, phone)
