Successful people have different habits that they like to stick to before bed.
Here are the habits of 8 highly successful entrepreneurs, world leaders, and celebrities.

Businesswoman, actress, producer, and talk show host Oprah somehow still finds time to meditate twice a day - once before bed.
3. Michael Phelps climbs to the height.
According to The Baltimore Sun, while training, Michael Phelps sleeps in a bedroom that mimics high altitude. This reduces the amount of oxygen available, forcing his body to work harder to supply oxygen to the muscles.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow often does massage.
The actress and founder of lifestyle website Goop say she devotes as much time to good sleep as she does good food and wellness activities. According to Hello magazine, Paltrow fasts from 8 p.m. until breakfast at 8 a.m. and recommends a foot or head massage to relieve stress before bed.
5. Elon Musk reduces the consumption of caffeine.
To keep up with his duties as CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk used to drink eight cans of Diet Coke and two cups of coffee every day. That's a lot of caffeine.

6. Barack Obama is watching The Daily Show.
\When the 44th President of the United States was in the White House, he did not have time for particularly healthy procedures before bed, and he often got up at night. However, he told Rolling Stone that when he could, he could relax with a good book, put his daughters to bed, and then watch an episode of The Daily Show from time to time.
7. Stephen King washes his hands.
The horror/fiction writer has several unusual sleeping habits. He said he had the same routine every night: “I brush my teeth and wash my hands. Why would anyone wash their hands before going to bed? I do not know". He also said that pillows need to be positioned in a specific way.
8. Mariah Carey surrounds herself with moisturizers.
Carey told Interview magazine that she needs to sleep "15 hours to sing the way I want." To achieve this, her bedroom has several humidifiers that add moisture to the dry air. They are supposedly useful for angina. “It's basically like sleeping in a steam room,” she said.
