4 Common Mistake People Make:

Over 40 million people suffer with sleep-deprivation. Despite significant advances in sleep-inducing medications, pillows, and mattresses, many are still not able to experience the high-quality deep restorative sleep they desire. 

Here are four common mistakes people make:

Mistake #1: You don’t clear your cerebral space before going to bed.  If you have even closed your eyes to sleep only to have your mind begin to rattle off your to-do list for the next day or rehearse a conversation you had earlier, then you’ve already experienced the poor sleep associated with a busy mind. This mistake can be solved by incorporating “brain-dumping” as part of your evening bedtime routine.

Energy Stealers and How Best to Deal With Them:

In a year plagued with stress and challenges, we need sound rest more than ever to function and lead productive lives. But this seemingly simple activity is problematic for millions of Americans. Why do we feel worse when we wake up, after a long sleep, than we did when we went to bed? It’s a complex story of individual physiology, lifestyle, health, and bad habits that exude in our patterns of behavior. It’s called ‘sleep inertia’ and it’s due to a lack of the brain and body, booting up in the morning. It’s a lack of oxygen in the muscles and brain, which makes you feel sleepy even after having a good 8-hour sleep. But, there are other causes too.
