The most profound thing you can do to lose weight and improve your health

One of the easiest ways to support weight management and healthy metabolism is to sleep!
And improve your quality of sleep 😴


Sleep affects ….
▪️gene expression
▪️hormone regulation

One thing to try
Is to reserve your bed for
Sleep and intimate moments


When we train our brains that our bed is not where we work, read, write, email, watch TV etc – it can help our brain relax and unwind.

It can also help us be more present


Sleep and temperature

😴The best temperature for therapeutic sleep is 60 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit depending on your comfort.

🥱Ideally cool on the bottom and warm on top. Just think of mimicking sleeping on the ground covered in blankets…. cozy right?

Better sleep leads to better #productivity and better #weight among so many things!

It has been argued that humans can go longer without food than sleep!


Humans sleep best in complete darkness

Sleeping during the darkest hours can obviously help…

😴 Another great tool can be blackout curtains

  • ESPECIALLY if you have ambient or street lights 💡

Why do humans sleep best in the dark?
In short our melatonin is regulated in response to light.

❤️ better sleep = better brain health, better weight management, better hormone health, better immune function and modulation 🥰🌱🤗

🛌 Sleep quality affects your gut health
Gut health affects your sleep

Breath work, diet, regular sleep times, stress management, and mindful exercise like yoga can help break the cycle


A key concept in Holistic Health

Is that everything works in cycles

There is a rhythm
A pattern

Our body works in cycles of movement and rest

If our body does not move, it will have trouble and get restless…

Leaving us in a constant state of tired restlessness

Find your fancy – whatever it is
• Walking • Yoga • Dance • Exercise •

Get it out so that when night comes, your body is able to rest
