Show Notes

Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!

With this Podcast Episode, I will put you to sleep!

This is an episode all about getting a better night's sleep...tonight and every night.

I tried to keep this a little shorter in length (as per YOUR request!) so I got in a good amount of tips that have helped me to sleep much, much better (I talked a little about my experiments with this), and I hope these will do the same for you.

I mention actual brands and things that may help you, and for your convenience, I was able to put quite a few of these in the links below with the tips for better sleep. These may be affiliate links--meaning that I'll get a little something if you decide to get them. I just thought I'd tell you that.

First, here's an article that talks about the harmful effects of a lack of sleep.
I didn't even mention this in the podcast, but little sleep is literally linked to a lower life expectancy and a higher risk of cancer. This is serious stuff!

But don't worry--here are SOME of my tips for you. There are a lot more.

As I mention in the podcast, what I'd ask you to do is to write these down and put a * or circle some of the ones that you'd like to try to make your life better.

If you use some of these, and they help--let me know! Write at

Here are the Ideas I talk about in the podcast (the links are where you can get these goodies):

  1. Set a BEDTIME alarm!
  2. Budget enough sleep time.
  3. Routine/ritual at the time.
  4. Win list. Appreciation.
  5. Magnesium supplement this one is the one I'm getting, it looks like it's pure.
  6. Blue light blockers shutdown complete! These are Swanwick glasses and rated highly by my friend Alex, who studies the heck out of this kind of thing.
  7. Chilipad/Temperature lowered 
  8. Grounding pad this can be put on your bed under you, or you can stand on it while barefoot during the day.
  9. Sleep trackers. Sleep Cycle app. It's SLEEP CYCLE on the app store. I might've said Sleep tracker in the podcast...and that was a mistake! And here's the link for the Oura ring
  10. Airplane mode
  11. What are you grateful for?
  12. 20 second hugs.
  13. BONUS! Mouth Taping!

I also mention making sure your iPhone or Android have the blue-blocking setting on. To get that on the iPhone do this:

Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift > Scheduled or Manually Enable Until Tomorrow

For Android, look at the apps available for it. Here's one (I haven't tried it) that I found called Twilight.

So, with that said--press play on this and decide what you'll do to get a better night's sleep.

What am I about to say? Huh? Huh?

That's right--!

You are loved and you are deserving.

P.S. The "picture" for this podcast is me with my "vampire vision" blue blocker glasses from Dave Asprey. I've also got some Breathe Right nasal strips and the mouth tape I talk about in the podcast. I know. Just lovely...but I sleep like YOU CANNOT BELIEVE!
