Hack Your Sleep and Feel Incredible!
Everyday for the past six months I’ve tracked my sleep using devices and applications. Learning about sleep has been one of my strange obsessions I research about in my free time. Time is our most valuable commodity and also a depreciating asset, so I always realized that if I could sleep less I could get more done. I used to sleep 8-9 hours a night and many times still wake up tired the next morning.
When I first started tracking my sleep I noticed that I only went into deep sleep (REM) for about 15% of the night. Learning and practicing sleep techniques I’ve been able to learn how to sleep on 4-6 hours a night 50-75% of the time in deep sleep. Deep sleep is the most valuable form of sleep as this is when human growth hormone is released. Many times I wake up before my alarm clock after about 5 hours because I just feel so well rested. I wake up feeling incredible, my immune system, and emotional state have also never been better.
If you would like to learn about some techniques on how to fall asleep quickly, stay asleep, and enter into REM sleep then like or comment on this post and if I see enough people are interested I’ll make some videos to share some pretty wild tips that could change your life.

PS: The 9% snoring is definitely from my dog 😉
