I struggled with this as well for years. The biggest boost for me on this front was cutting caffeine out. No more midday energy drops and my sleep is higher quality over all.

I find a coffee timed correctly in the morning perks you up so you're at a good and maintainable energy level sooner in the day. For me, that is about 9 or 10am. Any later and the code on the screen at 3pm starts looking like Russian!

Good point, this is a big factor in getting a good night sleep, If I consume caffeine after 14:00 AM I can't fall asleep until 1:00-2:00 PM, in contrast, when I don't take caffeine I fall asleep around 11:30-12:00 PM
