Ten minutes. That’s all it takes. And I can practically guarantee it will be 10 of the easiest minutes of your life.
This one quick trick could help you sleep better than you have in years. It can help deliver not only MORE shuteye but more of the essential “deep sleep” your brain and body need for rest and rejuvenation.
And it doesn’t involve ANYTHING you’re thinking of right now.
- It’s NOT some goofy new exercise
- There’s NO “meditation” or “breathing exercises”
- It involves NO apps
- There’s NOTHING to swallow
If you’re not getting enough rest… if you’re falling short night after night… you’re going to want to try this trick ASAP.
Because new research reveals how there’s far more on the line than you might think.
It’s NOT just a matter of being refreshed and recharged. It’s, quite literally, a matter of LIFE and DEATH.
Revealed: The DEADLY toll of sleep loss
It turns out lost sleep can lead to DNA damage and rapid aging on a cellular level. And that means regularly missing out on shuteye sets the stage for chronic disease and early death.
Individually, each of these common sleep problems can raise the risk of cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease by between nine percent and 13 percent:
- trouble falling asleep
- difficulty staying asleep
- waking up too early
- poor daytime function from sleep loss
And if you have more than one of these problems… or, worse yet, ALL of them at once… the risks can soar ever higher.
All from not getting enough sleep.
Simple snooze trick delivers MORE shuteye
But there’s a trick that can help you get back on track. One that’s so easy to do it’s hard to believe it works so well to help restore your sleep schedule.
It’s something many of us used to do before bed years ago. But it has fallen out of favor in the age of late-night TV and Netflix.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the hunt for the latest and greatest that sometimes, we lose sight of the basics. And there’s nothing more basic than curling up with a book in bed.
Since we started bringing screens into the bedroom, reading before we hit the hay isn’t as popular as it once was.
But a new survey finds that folks who DO read before bed sleep MUCH better than those who don’t. In fact, they end up getting an extra 90 minutes of sleep per week.
The average reader in the study spent 43 minutes lost in a book or magazine before bed several times a week. But the survey didn’t find that the benefit is tied to any specific amount of time reading.
All that matters is that you do it… even if it’s only for 10 minutes.
Just be sure to read the old-fashioned way, with words on a paper page. LED screens on electronic devices emit a form of blue light that tricks your brain into thinking it’s daytime, and that undermines your sleep instead of helping it.
