Sleep Like a Superstar! Part 1

Have you ever wondered if you’d get a good night’s sleep again? Have you tried “can’t fail” strategies and supplements with no success? If so, you are not alone!

I did, and I saw no progress until I started keeping score. I’m 56 years old, and these days, I get better sleep than I did when I was in my 30s. It’s not easy, but I’m going to share with you a proven method that TRULY works.

How Do You Keep Score?

 

Invest in a Sleep Tracker that won’t interfere with your sleep. There are two that I recommend:

S+ Sleep Sensor

What I love about the S+ is that it’s “the world’s first non-contact sleep sensor.” The majority of devices need to have some sort of bodily contact to work. This doesn’t! It uses something like sonar pulses to track your movements and combines that with sound monitoring to track your sleep stages. What you end up with is a “sleep score” that correlates to how well you feel. It’s an amazing app that includes a voice memo function to clear your mind. It also has a wave sounds feature that slows down as you go to sleep. You can learn more by going to S+ by ResMed.

OURA Ring

This is my favorite. It’s a sleep and activity tracker that fits in a comfortable ring. According to the vendor, the sleep tracker is 70% as accurate as a sleep study. It’s even recommended by my favorite fitness expert, Ben Greenfield. Click here to order your ŌURA ring now (use coupon code “craig” and you’ll get 10% off your purchase).

What Steps Do You Take?

 

Establish A Baseline – You need to track your sleep for a week before changing anything.

Pick Something To Change and Try It – Consider adding a supplement you want to try (I like Micro Melatonin). Consider jumping into a cold five-minute shower an hour before bedtime. See how it affects your sleep. If you don’t sleep any better after that first night, it’s best not to try again. If, on the other hand, you see a steady improvement, try it for a week.

Review The Results – At the end of the one-week trial, consider whether or not you want to continue.

Repeat the process.
