The 10-3-2-1-0 method is the latest theory on how to get a good night’s sleep.


Experts say that this new technique helps you get to bed earlier, sleep better and wake up the next morning feeling rested and ready for the day.


And what we love is there is a clear set of rules to follow so we know exactly what we need to do.


It works by cutting certain things at a certain time.


It’s as simple as 10-3-2-1-0.


10 hours before bed: No more caffeine.


When we heard this first we thought it was simply insane. No coffee or tea 10 hours before bed? We’re not sure.


However, we gave this a try and we hate to say it but it did make a big difference.



3 hours before bed: No more food or alcohol.


This has long been the advice from health professionals and anybody who’s tried to shed the pounds has definitely heard it once or twice.


Putting down the knife and fork three hours before bed gives your body time to digest before going to sleep.


Making your body try and digest while you trying to sleep is making your body work overtime which will result in interrupted sleep.



2 hours before bed: No more work.


As much as your body needs to wind down so does your brain.


Pilling on the workload right up until you go to sleep will make it much harder for you to get some quality shut eye.


So make those eight hours count and put away the work two hours before bed.



1 hour before bed: No more screen time.


It’s bye-bye to the TV, laptop and your phone one hour before you’re ready to go to sleep.


The blue light that is emitted from your devices can make it very difficult to fall asleep.


Spend your last hour reading a book, chatting to your partner or maybe even food prepping for tomorrow, anything that doesn’t involve a screen.



0: The number of times you’ll hit snooze in the morning.


After all the good work you put in the night before, don’t undo it by hitting snooze repeatedly until you have to run to catch the bus for work and end up a sweaty mess.


As much as you should be relaxing before going to bed, your morning should also be as stress-free as possible.


A good morning makes for a better day.
