Today we’re going to talk about why counting sheep is not the best technique to get to sleep. I also want to share with you a few tips for sleeping that will actually help. 

Counting sheep is not the best way to sleep better at night. Anytime you start counting, thinking about sheep, or thinking in general you’re going to activate the mind. An activated mind is not going to help you sleep. But, sometimes it’s really hard to turn your mind off to get better sleep. 

These sleep hacks should really help.

What causes people to stay awake or have bad quality sleep:

• Alcohol
• Caffeine
• Stress
• Stimulants
• Digestion
• Light
• Sleep apnea
• Leg cramps 

A really effective herb for better sleep that I actually use in my Sleep Aid is called fo-ti root. 

How to improve sleep:

• Limit caffeine 
• Aerobic exercise
• Vitamin D with K2 + more sun 
• Vitamin B1(nutritional yeast) 
• Magnesium/potassium

The autonomic nervous system is a system that is working on automatic. There are two parts of this system:

1. Parasympathetic: Rest + Digest (If you have a problem sleeping, you have a problem with the parasympathetic nervous system.)

2. Sympathetic: Fight or flight (Stress alters breathing. You have a shorter exhalation.)

 How can you activate the parasympathetic and inhibit the sympathetic? 

• Balance out the inhalation with the exhalation. Slowly breath in and slowly breath out. For example, breath in for four seconds and breath out for four seconds. Focus on your breathing, make sure they’re the same, and try to slow them down. 

If you’re wondering how to sleep fast or the best way to sleep better, this technique is it.
