Ari’s Sleep Hacks
Sleep timing & environment
Set a “go-to-sleep” time instead of wake-up time. I go to sleep between 10pm-11pm. Going to sleep before 10pm always gives better quality sleep (and more REM sleep).
Cool environment 65 degrees
Comfortable mattress (avoid hot memory foam mattresses), small pillow, down blanket
Earplugs — I have worn earplugs on for the last 6 years and they significantly improve sleep quality
Sleep supplement (30 minutes prior to sleep)
— Several studies suggest that L-theanine could help people relax before bedtime, get to sleep more easily, and sleep more deeply. These benefits may result from the specific effects that amino acid has on brain chemicals that play a role in sleep.
Magnesium L-Threonate 1,000mg
— Magnesium plays a particularly important role as it is needed to form serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline. Magnesium also helps form melatonin as serotonin gets converted to melatonin which is needed for sleep.
— Apigenin binds to specific receptors in your brain that may decrease anxiety and initiate sleep.
Hot shower right before going to bed
No physical training after 7pm
Evening stretching (15minutes) and Theragun massage (10 minutes) on days with intense exercise
Lower the light level and avoid screens (blue light) after 8pm
30 minutes of sunlight in the morning (within 1 hour of waking up) to set your circadian rhythm
