Episode 13 – Improve your sleep – secrets to better rest

Need some secrets to better rest?

How bad is it when you’re so tired and want to sleep, but as soon as you get into bed, you can’t sleep! Why is that? Is it circulating thoughts? Is it restlessness? Hmmm..

It’s common to have trouble sleeping these days. But at the same time, this is also quite simple to fix. In this article let’s discuss four top tips to improve your sleep so that you can have a better and more energetic tomorrow! Even without coffee (yes sir!).

Sounds good yeah?!


1. Exercise to sleep better

Life is about “relative” balance. One of the great Taoist symbols – the Yin-Yang symbolizes this quite well. This is also particularly important when it comes to being active and rest.

If you’re only a little bit active, you only need a small amount of rest (in other words, light sleep). However, if you are quite active, you will need more rest (which usually translates to a deeper, more restful sleep). Sounds straightforward right! The rest is relative to the work!

To extend on this, you only get what you put in. If you want a lot of energy you need to expend a lot of energy through exercise first. The more intense your workout, the more you adapt to the imposed demands and the fitter and more energetic you will be the next day.  So exercise to sleep better.


Try out these exercise options:


2. Sleep hygiene

It’s time to clean up your sleep. And the best way to do this is with sleep hygiene. The number one way to clean up your sleep is to train (or anchor) your body to wind down and wake up at the same time. This will also create a routine for your body hormones to start and end its recovery and awake processes at the same time.


To train your body for sleep:

  • Have a wind-down routine
  • Block and turn off all lights
  • Prepare your bedroom space so it’s appealing to sleep in
  • Cool your room temperature down.
