Yesterday we posted about sleep and research that supports that this precious part of your day can actually help flush toxins from the brain.
But many people find it hard to fall asleep. Overstimulation throughout the day, the excessive use of phones and screens in the evening time, and late bedtimes make it that some folks think about bedtime with dread.
Awhile back Eric became very interested in sleep and through his internet searches and podcast subscriptions he learned about Doctor Kirk Parsley, a physician in the US Navy who became particularly interested in sleep and its impact on health and performance.
If you have a bit of time today, we highly recommend you check out Dr. Parsley’s TedTalk video above where he spouts out some fascinating statistics on sleep.
Recently, Dr. Parsley created what he calls Sleep Cocktail. It’s a pre-bedtime drink that he believes helps you not only fall asleep, but also aides in restful, restorative sleep. I have to admit, when it first showed up at our door, I looked at Eric with great skepticism. For real Eric? But as a full-blown hard-to-fall-asleep-er I was intrigued.
It’s now been two months and Eric and I swear by it. If you’re looking for a sleep aide, this is a good one!
