The surprising contributor to Great Sleep

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.00.17 AMHaving severe sleep apnea was a blessing in disguise. It was painful in a lot of ways but I am happy to have gone through that. I gained a lot of emotional strength and I have more empathy for people that have this debilitating affliction. Since my sleep condition was so bad, I had to figure out every little improvement I could find. During that 2 year journey of researching a lot of different devices and theories, I learned what makes great sleep possible. At first, I thought it had to do with tongue exercises and tongue position. So, I spent a lot of time focusing on that. I found that tongue exercises didn’t help me at all. What I discovered was that posture directly affects the quality of sleep. After I figured that out, I created a simple upper body exercise and sleep position that helps prevent the throat from closing down. The upper body exercise squeezes the shoulder blades together while opening up the chest area and relaxing the neck muscles. The sleep position emphasizes that the hands should be at or above your head while sleeping. This helps maintain good posture while sleeping. I hope you receive the best sleep possible and heal yourself, as I have.

Weight Lifting and Good Sleep – compatible?

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 9.16.22 AMWhen my sleep apnea was its worst, I was lifting weights 2-3 times per week. I felt strong but my sleep (or lack of it) was killing me. I was moody and irritated a lot of times. No, I wasn’t taking any pro sports’ medicines. Often, I was straining and clenching my jaw as I increased the weight. Unfortunately, that was causing my sleep apnea to worsen. Now, if I do any kind of exercise at all, I start by keeping my jaw in a relaxed position with plenty of separation between my upper and lower molars.
