What is the best sleep hack? 😴

Six easy upgrades to rest and recover for optimal performance.

1. Keep moving

Daily exercise is essential for good sleep. Just try to avoid it close to bedtime.

2. Stay in rhythm

Go to sleep and wake up around the same time to keep your body clock dialed in. Try to get your eyes on some sunlight before 9 am.

3. Keep the technology out of your bedroom

Keep your room between 60-68 degrees when you sleep and try to make it as dark as possible.

4. Get your breathing right

Listen to the way you breathe while you sleep with Snorelab, a free app for your phone. If you are a mouth breather, an easy upgrade is to start mouth taping. Might sound crazy, but your brain wants nasal-filtered air, not mouth air. 3M micropore tape or Somnfix strips work well.

5. Stay Hydrated

Drink at least half of your body weight in oz. per day. For every diuretic like coffee and tea, drink two glasses of water.

6. Track your sleep

Whoop and Oura are both great options for sleep tracking to start understanding what is impacting your sleep the most.
