I love sleep — and I look forward to getting into this bed every night.
1. Create an ideal sleeping environment (dark, quiet and cold temperature).
2. Read before bed, instead of scrolling on Instagram or watching television. If you have a partner, get into bed earlier together, cuddle and talk with the lights off. Staring at the blue light from your cellphone or tv right before bed can affect the secretion of melatonin, which can result in poor quality sleep.
3. Establish a routine. Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to help regulate your circadian rhythm.
4. I always exercise in the morning/mid-day vs in the evening. Cortisol should be naturally high in the morning and go down throughout the day. Not only can you correct your cortisol rhythm, but you can also promote more restful sleep at night.
5. Magnesium 1-2 hours before bed
6. Mouth tape — always.
7. Two duvets is life changing
