 Successful people understand that their success starts and ends with their own mental and physical health, and that it’s almost entirely dependent upon them getting enough sleep. That’s why bedtime routines are a key ritual for so many of them – and why the very last thing most successful people do before bed is read。


  Here are nine things successful people do before retiring for the night:


  1. Read. Experts agree that reading is the very last thing most successful people do before going to sleep. Numerous business leaders block off time just before bed for reading, going so far as to schedule it as a “non-negotiable item” on their calendar. This isn’t necessarily reserved just for business reading or inspirational reading. Many successful people find value in being browsers of information from a variety of sources, believing it helps fuel greater creativity and passion in their lives。

  1. 阅读。专家称阅读是很多成功人士睡前必做的一件事情。不少成功人士都会抽出时间在睡前阅读,而且雷打不动。这不仅是为了补充商业知识或是获得灵感,而且很多成功人士认为浏览各类信息能够激发创造力,给生活带来激情。

  2. Meditate. Many successful people use the 10 minutes before bed to meditate. Dale Kurow, a New York-based executive coach, says it’s a great way to relax your body and quiet your mind。

  2. 冥想。不少成功人士睡前会做十分钟的冥想。高管培训师戴尔就说,冥想是帮助放松身体、平静心灵的好方法。

  3. Reflect on the day. many successful people take the time just before bed to reflect on, or to write down, three things they are appreciative of that happened that day. Keeping a ‘gratitude journal’ also reminds people of the progress they made that day in any aspect of their life, which in turn serves as a key way to stay motivated, especially when going through a challenging period。

  3. 回想当天。很多成功人士在睡前会回想或是写下当天发生的事,尤其是令他们感激的事情。写一篇“感恩日记”能够提醒人们当天在生活各方面取得的进步,这让人们在迎接挑战的时候更有动力。

  4. Make your to-do list. Clearing the mind for a good night sleep is critical for a lot of successful people. Often they will take this time to write down a list of any unattended items to address the following day, so these thoughts don’t end up invading their head space during the night。

  4. 列一张计划清单。对成功人士来说,抛开纷扰以获得好的睡眠至关重要。这时候,他们通常会列一张计划清单,写清楚明天要做的事情,这样睡觉的时候就不会一直想着这个问题了。

  5. Disconnect from work. Truly successful people do anything but work right before bed. They don’t obsessively check their email, and they try not to dwell on work-related issues. Give yourself a buffer period between the time you read your last email and the time you go to bed. The idea is to get your head out of work before you lie down to go to sleep。

  5. 从工作中抽离。真正的成功人士临近睡觉之前绝不会工作。他们不会一直检查邮箱,不会思考和工作有关的问题。在回复完最后一封邮件之后,上床之前,给自己留出一定的缓冲时间吧。

  6. Spend time with family. It’s important to make some time to chat with your partner, talk to your kids, or play with your dog. This is a common practice among the highly successful。

  6. 抽些时间陪陪家人。抽出时间和你的伙伴,孩子交谈非常重要。也不要忽略了你的宠物狗。成功人士通常都会这么做。

  7. Plan out sleep. Much has been written around the dangers busy people face running chronic sleep deficits, so one habit several highly successful people do is to simply make it a priority to get enough sleep — which can be a challenge for workaholics or entrepreneurs. One way to do that is to go to bed at a consistent time each evening, which is a key habit all sleep experts recommend to help ensure a healthy night’s sleep。

  7. 为睡觉做准备。不少人因工作繁忙都有慢性睡眠不足的问题。因此,不少成功人士都把充足的睡眠放在第一位。这对工作狂来说是个不小的挑战。解决方法通常是定点睡觉,很多专家称这是健康睡眠的有力保证。



  8. Lie down on a positive note. It’s easy to fall into the trap of replaying negative situations from the day that you wish you’d handled differently. Regardless of how badly the day went, successful people typically manage to avoid that pessimistic spiral of negative self-talk because they know it will only create more stress. Remember to take some time to reflect on the positive moments of the day and celebrate the successes, even if they were few and far between。

  8. 睡前保持积极的心态。很多人容易在睡前回想自己当天做的不太顺心的事情,觉得自己能做的更好。不管当天情况有多糟,成功人士都会尽量避免悲观的自言自语,因为这只会增加压力。记住,花些时间回想当天积极的事情,哪怕数量不多或是间隔的时间太长。

  9. Picture tomorrow's success. “Many successful people take a few minutes before bed to envision a positive outcome unfolding for the projects they're working on,” says Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert “For most, this is not a task or exercise; they're wired with a gift of solid resolution skills that come naturally。”

  9. 展望未来。职场专家林·泰勒指出:“很多成功人士睡前会花几分钟想象一下自己正在做的项目取得成功的画面。对于大多数人来说,这不是一项任务或练习,而是坚定信心自然流露的表现。”
