Sleep

                If you’ve been reading writing-related blogs for very long, you’ve seen the many suggestions for how to write better. For example, sit in a comfortable chair, listen to music, eat right, take breaks, etc. This stuff is good, but there’s something better.
               
Sleep.

                I’m not suggesting that you stay in bed until noon. I mean things like:
                -Go to bed early enough at the same time every night.
                -Try running a fan for white noise.
                -Have a bedtime routine. It’ll help you get to sleep faster.
                -Don’t worry about tomorrow. It’ll take care of itself.
                -Exercise, but not before bed.
               
                Teenagers need 8-10 hours of sleep a night, adults less. When you’re sick or worn out, sleep is one of the best healing agents.

                Besides, you’ll feel better and be able to focus better. Your family will thank you! I didn't get enough sleep last night (we were watching the fireworks) and I can feel it today!
