Sleep for health

Sweet Dreams: Sleep, the Magic Pill

For as long as I’ve been on this earth, humans have sought after the ‘magic pill’.

The ‘fixer-elixir’ that will help us anti-age, lose weight, think better, be faster, grow hair, etc. You name it, we, the human race, want it and will try anything that comes close to promising us a better “us”. Truth is, we probably already know that “it”, the magic pill, won’t work in the long run, but we love the idea of a quick fix. We don’t have to change to…well, change.

If we had THE MAGIC PILL for Weight Loss, hair growth, focus, anti-aging, etc. it would probably do these things…

  • Metabolize fat
  • Give us energy like kids
  • Help absorb nutrients
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Get rid of brain fog
  • Repair the body
  • Balance hormones

Yes please, and can we do it all without side effects?
Drum roll…dadadadadadadadadada spsh!

YES! There is such a thing and yes, it truly is magic. And 100% guarantee you will notice a difference within a week- or your money back.

It is sleep.

Sleep like a baby for health

Sleep makes all the difference. During sleep all of the above happens. Not just late night get-a-little-cat-nap sleep, but real, uninterrupted Alpha, Theta, Delta, REM filled, dream filled, sleep-like-a-baby deep sleep.

On average, adults need between 7-9 hours of sleep a night to feel fully rested, and consequently, to feel more ALIVE and thriving when awake. More about sleep HERE.

HOW? What if I’m not a good sleeper?

For all the reasons above, becoming an Olympic Champion Sleeper is a great aspiration and obtainable for everyone given the right formula.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Go to bed 10 minutes earlier for 1-week intervals until you reach a regular, comfortable bedtime hour sometime between 9:30pm-10:30pm. Depending on the season and season of life. MORE HERE. An earlier bedtime hour in the winter and later bedtime hour in the summer.
  • Turn off all screens 15 minutes earlier than normal. I recommend 1 hour before bedtime.
  • Eat healthy fat in the afternoon to keep blood sugar levels regulated through the night so you don’t wake up.
  • ‘Thought Download’ everything on your worry/to-do list so your brain can be tranquil.

If you have trouble quieting the mind…Umm, well… might I suggest doing YOGA? Yoga has a reputation for stilling the mind. The yoga practices of breathing, mindful movement, and meditation have a proven track record. Try it for yourself.

Sweet dreams baby.
