They say you need to sleep right through the night.
They tell you that it is normal to wake up in the middle of the night; in fact, chances are this is when you were conceived.
They tell you your bedroom should be completely dark.
Sleep on down pillows.
Sleep on memory-foam pillows.
Don’t watch a scary movie before bed.
Don’t drink coffee after 2PM.
They tell you to unplug your devices by 8pm.
And don’t eat after 6pm.
Don’t exercise at night.
Drink a glass of water before bed.
Don’t drink a glass of water before bed. You’ll wake up in the middle of the night to relieve your bladder.

Don’t have a glass of wine.

Drink warm milk with honey.
Do sleep naked. Don’t sleep naked.
So much advice!
But I think Mizener got it right.
The best kind of sleep is five more minutes.
