“Sleep Smarter” by Shawn Stevenson is a book we here at Team Lally have found some good advice in recently. If you want a great body and a great life: get some sleep.
This book has 21 strategies to get the best sleep ever. Today, we’re going to cover just a few of them.
First, don’t get “Twinkie sleep.” It’s common knowledge that there’s a big difference in nutritional value between Twinkies and broccoli. Just like when it comes to nutrition, the quality of your sleep is as important as the quantity.
In his book, Stevenson not only provides helpful tips like this one but also cites scientific studies to support them.
“The quality of your sleep is as important as the quantity.”
Some other tips include no screen-time within an hour before bedtime and no caffeine six to eight hours before.
Also, the ideal time for REM sleep is between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. and the ideal room temperature for sleep is between 62 and 68 degrees.
