I Interviewed with Fitness Expert Adam Gilbert regarding sleep, its impact and what we can do to improve it. Adam is a nationally recognized health, fitness and motivational expert and is the Founder and Chief Body Tutor of MyBodyTutor, a company he created to help people stop making excuses when it comes to health and fitness, by providing daily and personal accountability like no other company in the world.
Adam shares 4 tips to improve your sleep:
1) Set an alarm clock at night. It’s a powerful reminder to get to bed.
Otherwise, we wind up spending countless hours watching TV / being online and we won’t get enough sleep. That causes us to hit the snooze button which causes us to start the day behind the ball. A good night of sleep starts with our bedtime.
2) Keep your alarm clock/phone across the room.
3) Have a nighttime ritual.
It’s helpful to have a set routine every night. It’s a signal to ourselves that we’re winding down. It might include taking a warm shower, drinking some tea, reading, etc.
4) Write down everything on your mind before bed.
This is a part of my nighttime ritual. A lot of people tell me they can’t get go to bed because their mind won’t shut off. It’s because they have so many things on their mind. By writing down everything it clears your head. Simple but so powerful.
