Bedtime Rituals For Better Sleep

What we do before we go to sleep can have a profound effect on our success (unfortunately, about 60 million Americans suffer from insomnia) – here are some bedtime rituals for better sleep.

#1 Turn Down The Lights

Forget a sleeping pill, nature’s sleeping pill is the darkness. Darkness – which is simply the absence of light – gives your body the cue to release the hormone melatonin, which gives you the blissful feeling of tiredness and causes you to unwind. Turning down the lights approximately 90 minutes before you go to sleep can help you doze off a treat, according to San Francisco-based psychologist Steve Orma, PsyD.

#2 Cool It Down

By cooling down your room to around 60°F to 70°F (15°C-20°C), you’re in the perfect conditions to nod off and get some great sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. This is because the cooler your body is, the sleepier you become. If you find yourself feeling too hot, or you’re covered in too many layers of blanket, then crack a window open or use a fan to cool it down, else you’ll just be too restless and won’t get yourself a good night sleep.

#3 Put On Your Swannies

By putting on your Swannies blue light blocking glasses on 90 minutes before you usually fall asleep, you will block out all of the artificial light from your phone, laptop or TV that you use. This means that you can use these necessitate 21st-century luxuries without any side-effects on your sleep.

This is really important. The truth about blue light is that it’s only existed since the 19th century, and so our bodies are really not adapted to having this glaring light on us before we go to sleep, which thus has a big impact on our body’s release of melatonin, the sleep hormone. This leads us to feel less than fresh the next day, and unable to perform at optimal level. Swannies blue light glasses are really the answer here, plus, they look cool.

#4 Take a Hot Bath

It removes the day’s residue, relaxes the muscles, soothes, and induces sleep. (Try soaking in a magnesium-rich Epsom salt bath.) Soaking in a warm, hot bath at the end of the day will relax the muscles, bring you a calming presence of the mind and will induce you into a sleepy state. A great thing to try could be magnesium-rich Epsom bath salt, as magnesium helps us feel more sleepy.

#5 Practice a Relaxing Activity

Yoga, reading or meditation are great ways for you to relax your body and mind and relieve yourself of any cortisol that you may have accumulated over the course of the day. It’s also a great opportunity for you to reflect on life – some of my best ideas and realizations have come from pre-bed time reflection time. Whatever it is for you, you want to get into that sleepy, yielding state so that you can get some great shut-eye and wake up in the morning, ready to crush your goals.

#6 Only Use Bed For Sleep and Sex

Our brain is very clever, and we create very powerful neural-associations with our environment, which, for example, is why we link our dream holiday destination with happiness. Therefore, if we use our bed for just sleep and sex, then we will condition ourselves to fall asleep in this environment easier.

#7 Limit Your Use of Electrical Devices

Unless you have a pair of Swannies blue-light blocking glasses (see above), then your Netflix binge or your thumb workout (*cough*, Instagram, *cough*) is really affecting your sleep because it is restricting your body’s release of melatonin. It’s essentially telling your body, which is an evolutionary machine, that it’s still light outside.

Morning Habits For Better Sleep

It is commonly known that the start of our day can lead to can dictate the success of it – morning habits for better productivity, morning habits for better mindset, morning habits for better sleep…

Here are the best early habits to help you sleep better, and also to improve the quality of your life.

Have a Consistent Wake-Up Time

Make sure that you wake up at the same time every day, or at least most days. This is because your circadian rhythm, essentially your body clock, is set to specific times which dictates your body’s release of vital hormones such as melatonin and testosterone. If you have the same wake-up time every day, then this will help you feel fresher when you awaken and in turn, will lead to you feeling relaxed when nodding off to sleep.

Exercise

When it comes to exercising and sleep, a great routine for you could be working up a sweat in the morning for an hour a day. This is because it helps your body burn your excess energy, so when it comes to the evening you can fall fast asleep. Exercising is also important for regulating your hormones, which is important for your brain’s performance and melatonin release. It’s also a great way to increase your performance and productivity throughout the day.

Exposure to sunlight

As soon as you wake up, you want to expose your body to natural sunlight. This will enable your body to wake up and get moving for the day. Again, it leads back to your circadian rhythm, and by getting out and exposing your skin to daylight, you’re programming your body to wake up at this time. This will conversely lead to feeling sleepier at night.

Access to green space

You want to get yourself access to green space in the morning and awaken with fresh air. It’s important to be in nature as much as possible because, as humans, we are not built to be sitting down in a chair all day. Get yourself in that natural and healthy rhythm, and it will drop your cortisol levels dramatically, leading to better focus and being able to sleep easier.  Another benefit it brings is that it grounds your energy and gives you clarity of mind – a great way to be strategic about your day.

Grab Yourself a Healthy Breakfast 

A great morning habit for better sleep is to eat a healthy breakfast, giving you the required brainpower for the rest of the day. Ways you can fuel your brain to release all the required neurotransmitters to smash your day could be drinking a smoothie with greens in it. My personal favorite is carrot, apple, spinach and turmeric – chug it down, jack your neurotransmitters up and feel amazing. You could also have some porridge and mix it with some berries and cashew nuts. These are all delicious foods that will help your body and brain work optimally.

The correlation with sleep is that you want your brain to release the right hormones throughout the day, and thus you want to give your brain the best resources to do so. This will help your brain release all your neurotransmitters in healthy doses – especially melatonin, which helps you feel sleepy before you go to bed.

In Conclusion…

Your morning routine can be your centering moment of peace, in a world which challenges and tests us every day. Sleeping and your morning habits are your daily opportunity to be clear on what you’re doing, in which you build your energy and peace of mind to then be expansive throughout your day.

How great would your life be if you felt consistently happier and in a better mood? Build your morning routines and sleeping habits to ensure that you have your body on your side to achieve your goals.

How Better Sleep Equals a Better Life

How Better Sleep Equals a Better Life


I’m going to lay down the facts when it comes to getting those precious restorative hours in and show you how better sleep equals a better life. This is because, we all know that we should sleep more but we often don’t prioritize it and don’t care to compromise on it, if need be.

If the following applies to you, then take very seriously what I’m about to tell you:

* You’re currently in bed until the early hours of the morning, trawling through the internet in a dark and dismal haze, because you just can’t fall asleep.

* You wake up feeling as tired as you were when you lay down a few hours before and have no energy or motivation to get you through the day.

* Your moods and states throughout the day are restless, clumsy, frustrated, irritable and blue because you simply can’t get any sleep.

* Tiredness has become a personality trait and it’s getting in the way of your social life, professional or school work, and happiness.

* You snore heavily, sleepwalk, have nightmares or find yourself waking up in the middle of the night.

“Okay, so why is it important to sleep well?”

It’s important to get good sleep because it is where our body restores itself, heals any damage, and recharges the batteries. Consider sleep as you do the charger for your phone, without it, you’d die. This is because, during the day, you go out and hunt animals for food, build the campfire and protect the tribe against any lions – metaphorically speaking. At night, you need the time where you recover, so you can perform effectively the next day.

Being awake and taking action versus sleeping and getting rest is like the yin and the yang of life. One can only be effective as the other, and they are both incomplete without each other. If you want to be a successful person and reach immense heights of accolade, or you just want to have a comfortable and carefree existence, sleep is probably one of the secret ingredients.

“How much sleep should I get?”

There are a lot of different thoughts and opinions on how much sleep you need for optimal levels of energy, brain cognitive ability and optimal performance. The most widely accepted time is 8 hours of sleep per night. However, truthfully, these hours differ for different people. See below:

* Newborns babies to six-month-old babies need between 14 and 17 hours per day.

* Toddlers and pre-school children need between 10 and 14 hours per day.

* Teenagers are recommended to have between eight and ten hours of sleep per night, because of the fast changes of hormones and bone growth.

* Adults from 21+ are recommended to have around seven to nine hours of sleep per night.

* Older adults, around 60+ are recommended to have seven to eight hours per night.

“Okay. But what are the direct benefits of sleeping better?”  There are many benefits of sleeping better, but I’m going to give you the five most profound benefits of getting a good night sleep.

#1 Happier moods

Getting a lack of sleep has consistently been linked to unhappiness, depression and suicide. This is because it is diminishing returns – you’re waking up exhausted, and then you’re waking up the next day even more exhausted. This wears down your mental capabilities and leads to poor performance, which gives you low self-esteem. It also affects your brain chemistry and the two factors essentially lead to a massive downward emotional spiral.

#2 More energy

When you get good sleep regularly, you are basically creating fuel in your life to go out and achieve your dreams. Sleep is a commodity and a precious resource. Think of driving a car, because without gas, you won’t be able to do much at all without it.

#3 Better brain function

Getting a good night sleep leads to cognitive rejuvenation, which allows your body and brain to heal properly. This leads to you having more mental focus, presence and peace of mind. With the deeper focus, it allows you to take in richer and more complex information, which can seriously improve the quality of your life.

#4 A healthier body

A healthy sleep cycle equals better physical health. Harvard University conducted a study which showed that poor sleep cycles and habits lead to a weaker immune system, which makes you more likely to get sick. Specifically, they found that people who slept less than seven hours per night were three times as likely to get sick. This whole, ‘hustle’ movement is great, but never compromise working without your sleep because long-term it’s a sucker’s game and you’ll lose out.

#5 Better productivity

Having higher productivity enriches your life by helping you achieve your goals. When you have a better focus and more energy, it means you can get into deep work, because your thinking is clearer and you aren’t being pulled around by these crappy auto-pilot thoughts.

7 Surprising Facts About Sleep That You Probably Didn’t Know

Here are 7 surprising facts about sleep that you probably didn’t know.
You’ll view sleep a lot differently after reading this…
  1. Sleep Promotes Creativity

If you’re feeling the writer’s block, or maybe you can’t seem to think creatively, then perhaps you’re missing out on your sleep. This is because when you sleep better, your brain is able to reorganize and restructure your ideas more effectively, as well as consolidating your memories.

Studies at Harvard University and Boston College also found that people strengthened their emotional components of a memory in sleep, which is another reason you’ll be more creative with sleep.

  1. The “I’m Falling” Feeling – Explained.

The terrifying sensation of feeling like you are falling whilst in the midst of sleep is called the ‘hypnic jerk’. The causation of the ‘hypnic jerk’ is likely to be feelings of anxiety, caffeine or having physical activity close to bedtime. They are perfectly healthy, by the way, so don’t be concerned by the good old ‘hypnic jerk’.

  1. Sleep Boosts Your Athletic Performance

Are you an athlete, looking for that extra boost to crush your competitors and become a champ? Well, as you know, it all comes down to the simple things, nutrition, hard training and quality sleep.

Stanford University found that football players at college level improved their average sprint times, had less fatigue throughout the day, and more stamina – when they slept for ten hours or more per night. These results mirrored similar studies taken place with tennis players and swimmers.

  1. Sleep Helps You Focus

Poor sleep can incur ADHD type symptoms in young children and teenagers, says specialist Dr Rapoport.

“Kids don’t react the same way to sleep deprivation as adults do,” Dr Rapoport says. “Whereas adults get sleepy, kids tend to get hyperactive.”

A study from 2009 from the journal Pediatrics discovered that young people and children as young as age seven who got less than eight hours of sleep per night, were more likely to be impulsive, inattentive and hyperactive.

  1. Sleep Deprivation Kills You Quicker Than Food Deprivation

Disclaimer – please don’t experiment this for yourself.

If you go seven days without food, ’you’d probably be hungry, perhaps a little weak, and almost certainly somewhat thinner. But basically, you’d be fine’, wrote Tony Schwartz in the Harvard Business Review.

However, if you go seven days without sleep, you’ll be in real trouble, with your body being completely unable to function. Click here to check out why. This is also why Amnesty International lists sleep deprivation as a form of torture.

6. Good Sleep Lowers Stress

When it comes to our own health, sleep and stress are very closely linked, as they both affect one another and have a terrible effect on our cardiovascular health.  Sleep specialist Dr. Jean says, “Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure.”  It’s also true that your cholesterol levels are very much affected by your cholesterol levels – bad sleep leads to higher cholesterol levels, and more chance of heart disease.

  1. 50% of Your Dream is Forgotten Within Five Minutes

After just five minutes of waking, 50% of your dream is wiped from your brain’s hard drive. Within 10 minutes, 90% of your dream is forgotten. Freud actually believed that this was down to our dreams representing our repressed thoughts, and our conscious brain wanting to rid of them as soon as possible when awake. Although, it’s probably down to the fact that our brain is being used much more as we awaken, and not having the mental RAM to process any dreams.

The Shocking Effects of Under-Sleeping

The Shocking Effects of Under-Sleeping


Are you aware of the shocking effects of under-sleeping and the subtle, yet long-lasting implications it can have on your life?

Well, most people aren’t…

It’s the 21st Century and we have this crazy technology with us all the time – iPhones, laptops, tablets and easy access to Facebook, Netflix and Instagram. Most people can’t go to dinner without having their mobile on the table, as these things have essentially become an extension of ourselves. However,  this technology is seriously affecting our sleep patterns.

A study comparing the Western world’s use of electricity versus the preindustrial societies that functioned without electricity has found a big difference and correlation between the exposure of light and consequential sleep patterns.

Essentially, subjects who lived in an environment mimicking preindustrial societies were exposed to darkness for around 11 or 12 hours every night. This is because the only light sources they were exposed to were light from wood fires – which are not disruptive to our sleep. In contrast, those who were living in industrialized Western countries were exposed to darkness only as long as they slept, which is usually around seven hours.

This had a shocking effect on the subjects’ sleeping behaviors. Those who lived in the Western industrialized countries may have had as little as five-and-a-half hours sleep. Those who lived in the mimicked preindustrial environment, with no access to electrical light, had a restorative eight hours of sleep as their precluding exposure to darkness ensured the hormone melatonin was released.

So, what are the negative effects of under-sleeping?

The negative effects of under-sleeping have much more of a wide-reaching effect on your life than you would first imagine. Often, sleep is not considered in the overall success of your life but there are so many subtle ways that a lack of sleep can creep in.

Mental dysfunction

Say if you went to sleep last night without your blue-light blocking glasses, and you were watching the last amazing episode of Game of Thrones’ Season Six (no spoilers here). Your body didn’t release the healthy amounts of melatonin because the bright reflection of Jon Snow’s pasty white skin was telling your brain and circadian rhythm that it’s still sunny outside, and you end up getting five and a half hours sleep.

You go to work the next day, and your boss tells you to do a simple, yet important task, such as working out the sales revenues from quarter one of this year. But you’re so tired and you’re easily distracted, so you end up messing this up. Two days later, he calls you into his office and shouts at you because you made a crucial mistake. This year’s promotion and your trip to Miami with your friends is now looking gloomy.

This was a simple example of how just one night’s worth of bad sleep, or a bad decision, can have profound effects on our lifestyles, general success and happiness.

Interestingly, a 1997 National Sleep Foundation poll estimated that $1.8 billion in work productivity was lost to sleep disorders and sleep debt that year.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, memory, decision-making faculties, attention and patience are just a few of the limiting issues with mental performance when you have a lack of quality sleep. These negative effects are somewhat like a glass wall on your brain which limits the functionality and ability of your brain to perform at high levels. They also make imperative work such as studying and working a difficult task harder for you, ultimately affecting your performance.

Chronic Sleep Debt

‘Chronic sleep debt’ can be defined as the hours you fell short of within the eight-hour sleep (or whatever is optimal for you), which is accumulated over time. For example, if you spend five days in a week, one hour short of sleeping each day, then this will lead to a sleep debt of 5 hours.

A common form of compensation for poor sleep is making up for it at the weekend. However, this is not an effective way of dealing with sleep debt because you can’t physically counteract five, six or seven hours of sleep by adding it on in just two days. It’s best to get it right from the start and sleep at your optimal duration throughout the night.

Strained Relationships

Being low on sleep also severely impacts your interpersonal relationships. This is because when you are under sleeping, you are more irritable and often in a bit of a haze which makes you easily reactive. When you’re tired, you’re just a worse version of you – which other people see.

 

Physical Limitations

According to the Better Sleep Council, physical agility, energy and coordination are negatively impacted when you get poor sleep. Moreover, your cardiovascular endurance, reaction times and heart functions are also very much affected when you don’t get good sleep. Whether you like to lift weights or whether you’re more of a runner – lack of sleep can really affect your fitness, your gains and your general health and well-being.

How Sleep Can Help You Look 10 Years Younger!

 You know what’s hardest about aging?  That terrible feeling you get when you look yourself in the mirror and think to yourself, “how did I get so old?” And yet…It happens to us all! However…  What if you didn’t have to age as fast as you are right now? Better yet…

What if you could turn back the clock 10 years… Would you be interested in that? Well…You can create an “age reversion” system that will make you look 10 years younger and slow down the aging process.

And it all starts with your SLEEP.  How do you do it?  One way is to … Get to bed at the right time.  Studies show that human beings get the most hormonal benefits and recovery by sleeping during the hours of 10 pm and 2 am. This is what sleep expert, Shawn Stevenson calls “Money Time”.

Sure, you may be sleeping from 1 am to 9 am and getting eight hours of sleep.   BUT…you are missing out on that “Money Time” when the beneficial hormonal secretions are at their highest.  Around 10 pm, your body starts to naturally create melatonin and wants to repair and rejuvenate itself.  Melatonin production happens most if your sleep is lined up at this time.

Want to stay young and vibrant?  Then you need to know that you get the best dose of HGH, the “youth hormone”, if you’re sleeping during those prime time hours.  So try to be asleep as long as possible between 10 pm and 2 am. Which means try to be in bed by 10 pm each night.  Your body will repair itself naturally and you will look younger in days!

And don’t forget to wear your Swannies ~ The Best Blue Light Blocking Glasses for Better Sleep Tonight which will block that nasty blue light from your cell phone, iPads, laptops, LED Street Lights when walking your dog and TV screens.That blue light is literally disrupting your sleep and keeping your mind active.  So…Block that blue-light out.

Protect your Vision!  Optometrists are predicting an epidemic of premature macular degeneration (vision loss) from prolonged exposure to digital devices. The American Macular Degeneration Foundation reports that “the blue rays of the spectrum seem to accelerate age-related macular degeneration (AMD) more than any other rays in the spectrum”.

Choose your Swannies  today! The Aviators, the Wayfarers, the Cat Eyes, the Reading Glasses, and new colors in the Kids Neon line.

Fall Asleep Faster, Sleep Deeper, and Wake Up Feeling Refreshed!

Sleep is critical to high performance in whatever endeavor you choose. Studies prove that staring at a smartphone, iPad, TV, or computer screen 90 minutes before bed will disrupt your sleep. Looking at the artificial blue light emitted by electronic screens suppresses your melatonin secretion and triggers your body to produce more daytime hormones like cortisol.

Ok, let’s be honest. You don’t want to switch those electronics off 90 minutes before bed do you? So…90 minutes before sleep, put your Swannies on and continue to look at your smart phones, watch TV, or work on your computer. This option is not as good as switching off all electronics. But if you’ve got to look at them, blocking the blue light from wearing Swannies will help your body naturally prepare for sleep. You can then fall asleep faster and sleep deeper. Get ready to wake up feeling refreshed!

Order your swannies today!
