“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” – William Shakespeare

Many of us are captivated by success. We love to read success stories, interview successful people, and learn how we ourselves can become more successful. We especially love to learn the “tricks” of success. Think about how much money people have made through the production of success-related media, books, CDs, DVDs, classes, conferences…the list goes on. Tony Robbins, perhaps the most well-known success and self-help guru in the world, is estimated to be worth nearly a half of a billion dollars.

And successful people have been asked just about every question known to man: ‘What do you do in the morning?,’ ‘What’s your diet like?,’ ‘How do you balance work and home life?,’ ‘How much do you work out?, and on…and on…

Ever wonder what successful people do before bedtime? We asked this question ourselves, and found some of these bedtime habits very interesting.

Here Are 10 Things That Successful People Do Before Heading To The Sack:

1. They Read

One thing behavioral experts have discovered is that reading is the very last thing a number of successful people do before going to sleep. From business magnates like Bill Gates; to national leaders like Barack Obama, to fashion designers such as Vera Wang – reading is considered a non-negotiable activity for many successful individuals.

2. They Have An “Unwinding” Ritual

One thing most successful people don’t do before bed is work. Of course, some successful people are considered “workaholics” and may continue their work into the late hour – but, this is considered an exception to the rule. To “unwind” is also something considered non-negotiable – and there are a number of ways to do so.

3. They Do Something Nostalgic

Some successful people like to “take a trip down memory lane.” Doing so helps them keep things in perspective – to remember what is truly important in life. Part of success is the ability to recognize when a mental break is needed; when the body and mind require something other than the work that all-too-often makes up their day.

4. They Daydream

Not really a surprise, here. Many successful people have attributed daydreaming – aka “mind-wandering” – to breakthroughs that have brought them to the next level of success. This is particularly true of innovators, artists, and other creatives who truly appreciate the power behind daydreaming. Aside from the next “big breakthrough,” some successful people will daydream to simply relax the mind, gain inspiration and/or wisdom, or develop potential goals.

5. They Plan For Tomorrow

People that have achieved tremendous success are known for their incredible work ethic – an attribute that often involves working above and beyond the normal “9 to 5” routine. While they may not do anything too demanding prior to bedtime, they will plan for the next day. Not to mention, this short time investment pays big dividends. Successful people understand this short planning time makes the execution of tomorrow’s activities clearer… and less stressful.

6. They’ll Unplug From Everything

Avoiding heavy work, relaxing, and recharging often requires a completely disconnect from the phone, computer, tablet, or any other digital device. Further, researchers have discovered that use of electronic devices prior to bedtime makes it much more difficult to fall asleep – an essential part of a successful person’s life.

7. They Prioritize Family

For many, the phrase “work-life balance” translates to “work-family balance.” For most people, including the very successful, family always comes first. Balancing a heavy workload and quality time with the spouse, kids, pets, etc. can be a difficult task at times, but is often considered non-negotiable – and rightly so.

Whether family/pet time is scheduled or not doesn’t matter to successful people. The great ones always know who helps make them great…and make certain to reciprocate their love.
