Consistent bed/wake times, with the rising/falling of the sun, are key for regulating your SCN (Suprachiasmatic Nucleus) resulting in improved sleep quality and anti-aging!
Sleep helps restore the immune system, lengthen telomeres, and strengthen CD8 fighter cells against viruses and bacteria.
Here is an example: Bed between 10-10:30p / Wake at 5-5:30a
Staying within 30 minute increments is important.
Trouble falling asleep?
Try this simple breathing practice for 5-10 minutes before bed:
1) Breathe in through the nose for a slow count of 4
2) Breathe out through the nose for a slow count of 5
3) Feel the slowed breath and your nervous system slowing down
4) Repeat for 5-10 minutes
