Master decision coach Denise Shull of The ReThink Group argues that tired traders have a tendency to misperceive risk. She explains how certain behaviors lower the quality of sleep, and thus the quality of decision-making. She also suggests some helpful strategies for counteracting this.

    Excellent advice. I've been doing these biohacking techniques for years yet still good to be reminded.

      I was sure she was going to mention to drink more water and exercise more often... nevertheless, good sleep is extremely important.

    Wear orange lens glasses (Oakley style) and put them on 2 hours before bed. Your partner will think you're Bono from U2, but the "setting sun effect" that it has on the mind will help to lower cortisol and increase melatonin.

    Excellent advice. Guilty as charged with looking at phone in middle of the night.
