Powerful Sleep

Slow day today. Many people are on vacation. What can they be thinking. Busy day tomorrow starting with an aggressive workout with my over strong work out partner – Trevor, CEO of the Elliot. He can lift 20% more than I can. The only consolation is I can out run him. Lots of meetings tomorrow.

I went to my mom and dad's for dinner with my daughter Beth. I walked which is about an hour walk both ways. Need to get my steps in since I did not work out today.

I read an ebook on sleep today called Powerful Sleep by Kacper Postawski. Sleep and I have an uncomfortable equilibrium. I worry that I will miss something if I sleep. In my time management course I say “Sleep is for wimps”. But I don’t really believe it. I do think many people waste a lot of time sleeping but there is a healing that comes from a good 6-7 hour sleep. Even I will admit that.

The gist of the book is that you can sleep less if you get “good deep sleep”

Ideas from the book include:

1 – get lots of sunlight. (I am working on this)

2 – no caffeine

3 –no alcohol

4 – No change in sleep pattern on the weekend.

He also suggests that sleep and temperature are connected and that we sleep on a cycle. The key is to wake up in the right point on the cycle.

Interesting book.
