Day 22.5: How To Fix Your Sh*tty Sleep

Your sleep sucks!

You wake up, ready to go back to bed. You are miserable. And, you never actually feel rested…

Did I strike a nerve? If so, then you’re one of millions of people that have a terrible time getting a restful night of sleep. (And if that’s not you, then why are you still reading?)

Fear not my friend. For, I am here to give you a very quick, effective guide on how to fix your sleep!

Let me first start by saying that this article is assuming that you have a good pillow, a good bed, and have the temperature set to your comfort level. If you are missing any of those, then fix that and see how it goes.

For those of you that are thinking, “My pillow and bed are great, and the temperature’s fine”, then your problem may just be your sleep cycle being screwed up. Don’t worry though, becuase most people have terrible sleep cycles.

Here’s why:

Artificial lighting is terrible for your body when it’s trying to get tired. That’s right, your body has to release hormones to make you tired. This hormone — known as melatonin — is triggered by outside stimuli, such as darkness. So, if darkness is supposed to make you sleepy, but you’re sitting in your brightly lit living room, with a phone in your face, what do you think is going to happen? That’s right! You’re not going to be tired.

Your body is literally trying to make you tired, but you’re not letting it do it’s thing.

So, let’s fix it.

Go pick up some melatonin from the local supermarket (every vitamin aisle will have it). Since your body is all whacked out from lamps, and phone screens, you’re going to have to give your body a hand by supplementing a little bit.

Now, here’s how to use it to repair your broken sleep cycle.

Take 5mg 30 minutes before you want to go to sleep. Since you are supplementing the melatonin, your body will be alerted that it’s tired. But that’s not it… If you actually want this to be as effective as possible, you have to do one more step.

Once you take the melatonin, go lay down in you bed, with the lights and phones off. Again, you can’t expect your body to become tired if you’re over-stimulating it. Shut that crap off!

Pretty simple, right?

Absolutely! Now repeat these two steps every night for 2-3 weeks. That’s all it really takes for your body to get readjusted. After this few week period, you should be able to cease the supplement and let your natural hormones flow.

Until tomorrow (after a good night’s sleep),

P.S. Don’t be stupid and think that you should take quadruple the dose for quadruple the efficiency. It doesn’t work like that! Follow my instructions, and you’ll be set.
