What protocols are recommended for improving sleep?


To improve sleep, recommends various protocols, such as:

  1. Using a sleep hypnosis app like Reverie for quick sleep onset, staying asleep, and potentially alleviating insomnia 1.
  2. Engaging in non-sleep deep rest (NSDR) practices, like hypnosis and yoga nidra, to access deep calm and teach the nervous system how to relax 2.
  3. Polyphasic sleep, which involves sleeping in 90-minute increments throughout the day, to potentially reduce overall sleep needs 3.
