I haven’t been a good sleeper for the last twenty years or so. I overthink, and then I seem to get myself “worked up;” it takes me hours to fall asleep. Add in Covid and breast cancer, and I can tell you the last two years have been rough. This is why I was so excited to welcome sleep expert Devin Burke to today’s podcast episode.
One of Devin’s tips was to start my day with a glass of water and then coffee. He suggests I go outside and look toward the sun (never at the sun!), drink my water, and wait an hour before coffee.
I’m not sure I can do it, but I’m giving it a shot 🙂
Here’s the sleep tip I’ve already started to incorporate, and I’m telling you, it’s helping me to fall asleep faster.
Devin suggests going outside for five minutes a couple of times per day. The point is to give your brain a break and not try to solve any problems.
He concludes that giving your brain some downtime helps to encourage your body to sleep deeper at night.
This is harder than it sounds, so I had to leave my phone inside.
Give this episode a listen to hear more sleep tips that actually work!
I’m picky about fish. I will only purchase wild fish, and yes, I’m that obnoxious person that asks the waitstaff in restaurants where they got the fish! I know that wild is healthier, and this is why I love ButcherBox wild salmon!
Recent studies show that higher fish consumption is associated with improved immune function. The study, which looked at the cancer-fighting effects of the Mediterranean diet, found that people who reported eating less fish and more red meat showed several common abnormalities in their blood that suggested a higher risk of cancer.
Wild and smaller fish, such as salmon, are anti-inflammatory and associated with better brain, hormonal, and nervous system health.
