Totally Free Series on Sleep Hacking
The Ultimate Series for a Better Night’s Sleep
I woke up late.
And I felt like crap.
It was the morning of an important presentation that I had been preparing for over the last 3 weeks.
I slept way past my 5:30am alarm. Which meant my plans to hit the gym, get a shower and have a leisurely breakfast and then meditate and relax before I had to be at the convention center were out the window.
It was 8am and I was to be on stage at 9am.
I had slept for 9 hours.
On the one day I needed to be “on” I had gotten plenty of sleep and yet woke up feeling as if I had been out drinking all night. What gives?
How is it that some people can get by with 4-6 hours of sleep and feel great and even perform at the top of their game the next day, when many of us sleep for 8 hours and wake up feeling like we need a nap?
If this has ever happened to you, if you have ever wanted to get higher quality sleep and be on the top of your game, then this FREE

Things Have Changed
Modern society and the domesticated life that we lead often places us at a disadvantage when it comes to sleep. The habitat we evolved into was lived outdoors and our only nighttime light exposure would have been firelight, moonlight and candlelight. These natural forms of light, including sunlight all instigate natural cues to the body to help us wake up or go to sleep.
We have replaced our life lived outdoors with a life lived indoors.
Indoors we expose ourselves to intense artificial light late into the night. Some of us cannot avoid this as we need to work late at night or even overnight (ughh).
We move from our homes, cars and offices to the gym, the store and the coffee shop. These spaces remain at a near universal constant temperature that rarely fluctuates more than a few degrees.
We rarely spend time outdoors and almost certainly not in the morning or noontime, when the sun is brightest because we are locked away in a corporate office, or hunched over the computer at home.
We no longer sit around the fire at night, which gives off heat and yellow and red light, all cues to help our body prepare for sleep. Instead we sit in front of laptop, smart phone or TV screen, or maybe all three at once, and soak up not red light, but white and blue light that, in the past, we would have only been exposed to in daytime from sunlight.
Our modern lifestyles are making us sick and year by year, take their toll without us ever knowing what we can do to live a healthier life.
As our indoor environment adds stressors into our system that we aren’t aware of, we are not allowing those stressors to be vanquished by sleep. By committing some cardinal sins of sleep hygiene we hijack our sleep cycle and close our eyes for 8 hours without getting the quality rest we really need.
Let’s face it, whether you’re heading to the battlefield or the soccer field, we modern humans need sleep to recover, heal and optimize our mind and body for the next day’s engagement.
Without sleep, we push our biology to the breaking point. 
Good sleep hygiene leads to better quality sleep and ultimately a better life. [2,3]
Sleep is a big part of having high energy, high motivation and access to the full capacity of our minds and bodies.
No one taught us about proper sleep hygiene in school.
It’s time to fill in some gaps.
Tune in as we release our Sleep Series and explore the Ultimate Tools in creating quality sleep no matter where you are.
