Your body is a 24-hour machine, so having routines that sync your internal clock to the current season has a massive impact on your ability to tolerate stress, energy levels, and whether you can fall and stay asleep.
At the end of the day sleeping is like landing a plane, not flicking a switch, so have a routine that starts 2-3 hours before bedtime.
Whether you bounce out of bed or take a few hours to warm-up, have a routine for the first few hours of the day.
Most of the time my routine includes:

Waking up and going to bed at roughly the same time (even if Iā€™m late to bed and a bit dusty I resist the urge to sleep in).
Having breakfast on my front deck which gets the morning sun, and avoiding bright light in the evening.
Doing something every morning to get my body moving, even if it's only 5-10 minutes of yoga.
Not eating after 7pm.

So where does sleep sit on your priority list?
When it comes to stress, performance and health, consistent quality sleep is number one, but it's the first to be sacrificed for a deadline, night out, or our work.
That's fine in the short-term but realise there's always a biological cost.
How much? That depends on whether you have daily habits that minimise the price and stop a short-term thing becoming a long-term problem.
