Hacking Your Sleep
Practical Sleep Hacks curated by @Scottbrit
"Over the course of the seven days, my
sleep improved from four to five hours of
actual sleep time during my eight and half
hours in bed, to just over seven hours
asleep! Scott, thank you, thank you,
thank you for presenting this information
in a succinct, informative matter"
- Dana M
"Good class to take if you are having
trouble regulating your sleep. I feel more
energy and less anxious since I am better
rested and prepared for a long day. I
didn't realize sleep could have such an
affect. Scott s lessons are quick and easy
to follow. All information is practical.
Your body will thank you for it.”

Have as many waking hours to do things we love and be
productive, while still be able to maintain a high energy level
and healthy lifestyle.
What Variables Affect
How Well We Sleep?
Diet Environment Breathing Consistency Exercise
What Variables Affect How Well We Sleep?
Diet
On Caffeine A.K.A Coffee
Limit it to one to two cups a day
(ideally 0)
it takes the average person
5-8 hours for the caffeine to
reach its half-life
Your last cup should be
no later than
2pm
On Coffee
Gradually shift to decaf if you can.
You can even go half regular/half decaf
BUT I LOVE THE TASTE/RITUAL!
Me too!
• Also avoid
– Soda
– Chocolate
– Certain over the counter headache
– medicines like Aspirin
Don’t Forget Other
Caffeine Sources
A full list of OTC medicines and
other caffeine sources caffeine here
Balancing Hydration and
Waking Up
Its important for our health to stay hydrated
throughout the day, as well as our SLEEP!
—Dehydration can result in a poor sleep
It’s no fun waking up twice a night to
use the restroom….
:(
Limiting Bathroom Wakeups
Limit the amount of
liquid you consume to
1.5 hours before bed time
8oz
For the Fellas
If you find yourself waking up multiple
times a night to use the restroom,
this may be due to prostate issues.
to get this fixed,
I recommend seeing a doctor
but a popular vitamin that
promotes prostate health is…
(and limits waking up to use the little boys room)

Saw Palmetto

environment
Electronic Screens Are Evil
Exposure to blue light from the
screens of common electronic devices
can inhibit melatonin production
(computers/tvs/phones)
Melatonin is the sleep hormone we
produce as the sun goes down that
is responsible for making us feel
tired and ready for bed
Ways to Conquer Blue Light
Avoid the use of screens within
hours
1.5-2of going to bed
but really?
Ways to Conquer Blue Light
How the heck can I be productive?
Use free software from f.lux
f.lux makes the color of your computer or iphone’s
display adapt to the time of day. At night, it limits the
amount of blue light emitted from your screen
A more practical sleep hack
Use free software from f.lux
RESULT: You can still use your computer, tablet,
iphone before bed with limited suppression of
melatonin production
A more practical sleep hack
Rock Blue-Light Blocking
Shades
There are sunglasses with lenses that block blue light.
I have started wearing these on occasion when I
watch TV or use my computer. Seems to work
Props to achievement architect Ari Miesel for this idea
―Noise, especially when loud
and abrupt can prevent us from
having a restorative sleep‖

2) Mask other sounds with white noise
by sleeping with a fan on. If you’re

Sleep in A Cool
Temperature
Being too cold or hot can
result in a waking up
throughout the night
Most people sleep best in a
cool environment between 65-70degrees

Breathing
Breathing
If You Can’t Breathe….You Can’t Sleep
Nasal congestion • Being overweight • Smoking • Allergies
• Anything that makes breathing
more difficult can disrupt our sleep:
A Quick Fix?
To optimize breathing can
require some serious life
changes. However one
simple thing you can do is
wear Breathe Right strips
A Quick Fix?
To optimize breathing can
require some serious life
changes. However one
simple thing you can do is
wear Breath Right strips
They also promote breathing
through your nose the entire night
By opening your nasal
passages, breathe right strips
make it easier to breath
A Quick Fix?
Why It’s Always Better To
Breathe Through Your Nose
Mouth breathing:
– Reduces oxygenation of the whole body
– Makes your more susceptible to potentially
harmful germs entering your body
– Increases the chances of getting a cold due to the
increased capacity of cold air entering your lungs
Consistency
Our bodies love
consistency
Consistent sleep schedules
encourages optimal Deep
and REM sleep
Important for the optimal flow of
neurotransmitters and hormones that
help regulate our bodies

Exercise
Regular exercise makes us
tired
I only do 20 minutes of scheduled
exercise a week (see more here) but
sleep great by building in exercise into my
routine (i.e. taking the stairs)

Regular exercise makes us
tired
It also promotes increases in deep
sleep and reduces awakenings
Regular exercise makes us
tired
When to Exercise

muscles, and heart to a point that can
make it difficult to fall asleep
When to Exercise
