The best thing to do before a big test?

There’s a better, scientifically proven place to start: With sleep.

Rested brains learn well and perform well. At a recent talk I gave, 80% of teens and adults self-reported sleeping less than six hours the previous night. Forget the fact that science shows the average adult needs more than eight hours and the average teen more than nine.

But are there ways of maximizing sleep and good work? Try these:

  1. Make sleep as important as other things
  2. Work towards that deadline
  3. Reconsider your commitments
