Brace yourself. According to a 2015 report by the World Bank, these places are better for doing business than the United States: Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong/China, Denmark, South Korea and Norway. Then comes the United States, whose rating on business climate has been falling for years.

Before you lay down to sleep.

(1) Review your to-do list.

(2) Do a brain dump. If your thoughts are running wild, write them down. Once they’re on paper, you can rest.

(3) Turn off electronics two hours before.

(4) Center yourself. Find at least 20 minutes for decompression and reflection.
