On Today’s Show

Dr. Pete Sulack shares some tips about overcoming stress by starting your day well rested. When you sleep at night melatonin is released by your brain, which allows you to get into a deep sleep. It is in that deep sleep our body can recover from stress, heal, and grow, and so it’s very important that we get proper sleep every night.

1 Simple Thing Action:

  • A good day’s work starts with a good night’s sleep.
  • Melatonin production peaks at 10 pm, so the closer to that hour you can call it quits, the better.
    • Give yourself a “no technology zone” in the bedroom.
      Turn off phones and tablets an hour before retiring.
    • Read a book, listen to music, talk with your partner, meditate; give that left brain a rest so you can unwind and sleep.
  • Keep it cool. Optimal sleeping temperature is between 60 and 68 degrees.
  • Keep it dark. Your pineal gland senses light even when your eyes are closed. Light interferes with melatonin production and disrupts sleep. Invest in “blackout” draperies so you can sleep longer.
