How To Get BETTER SLEEP To Perform At Your Best

If you aren’t getting the proper amount of good deep sleep your body needs each night, then you’re setting all of your health goals back. One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of living a healthy life is making sure to get your sleep each night. Jason Sani is back to chat about the most common sleep blocks and how you can overcome them.


Most people do not get the proper amount of sleep each night. Whether it’s because of late-night screen usage, a wandering mind, or distractions, sleep is an elusive thing for much of the population. Two of the easiest things for you to control are the amount of light you’re exposed to and the temperature of your room.


When your eyes are exposed to any light, you are less likely to sleep deeply. Make sure to close your blinds and turn off all of your devices at least 30-minutes before bed to signal your body to start the wind-down process. Also, for most people, the optimal temperature for good sleep is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit.


Jason and I chat about the various dietary things you can do to enhance sleep and why sleep tracking is so important. Many of the things we put into our bodies directly affect the quality of the sleep we get. Each person is different, however, so having a good sleep and activity tracker will help you understand what is good and bad specifically for you.


If you’re just starting out on your health and wellness journey, know that you can take incremental steps toward changing your sleep habits. If you’ve been following your path for a while and have it a plateau, consider tracking your sleep to see if that is where your issue is. Jason and I share so many tips and tricks for getting better sleep each night. If this is one of your blocks, then you won’t want to skip this episode.
