Collagen production and evolution of our skin cells

Those people who sleep for the recommended number of hours each night are more likely to repair their bodies after each day, than those who consistently skip this figure. Research has linked sleep to human growth hormone. This hormone is responsible for ramping up collagen levels with the muscles. So an athlete will be stronger and perform more effectively if he gets enough sleep every night.

Set the bedtime; your body must begin to recognize when it’s going to go to sleep so that it can prepare. A set bedtime will also mean a set wake-up time every day and give your body the chance to get the most restorative sleep possible in a consistent rhythm.

Getting a good night’s sleep has so many physical, emotional, and mental benefits. Yet, with all of the distractions that demand our attention, going to sleep on time and getting enough rest has become extremely elusive to many of us. …


A room needs to be dark and comfortable. Create an environment that you want to be in. Do what you need to get the light blocked and the temperature where you need it. The other big obstacle is screens and devices. I am a stickler about no screens 30 minutes before bedtime.

Dreaming and Deep Sleep plays such an important role in your mental, emotional and physical health. High-quality sleep supports the washing away of trauma, healing and DNA repair that is required to be ready for the next new day. An example of what that looks like is the rejuvenation of your heart and blood vessels, allowing your muscles and joints to recover from the day before, reducing stress and anxiety then waking up in a fresh and relaxed mental state. When you get into the rhythm of consistent high-quality sleep your body rewards you with a comfortable, luxurious life.

The world is bigger than the environment you grew up in, you can learn so much from other people, different cultures, and different countries. I would really recommend everyone to travel around, get to know different cultures because it will broaden your perspective on life a lot.

Recognize and accept the importance of sleep in your life. Make a list of your top 5 priorities in life. If sleep is not on your list, realize that sleep affects everything in your daily life and must be added to your daily priority hierarchy. Once you prioritize sleep, it will be easier to make the the daily behavioral changes and commitment that will lead to healthy sleep.

… Take control of place and time. Bodies and brains like stability and predictability in the where and when. Besides a comfortable bed, opt for a sleep place that is cool and has a minimum of additional sensory stimuli to pull on attention, whether that’s noise leaking from other rooms or a laptop nearby calling you to check emails. In terms of time a regular, bedtime and wake time and hold to it most of the time to reinforce circadian rhythms. It’s not uncommon for people who get more rigid with this to not need an alarm clock, just waking…


Stimulation control at night — I am guilty of this on some nights; I can get sucked into my phone reading articles or scrolling social media and lose track of time. When I finally look up it’s an hour past when I wanted to go to sleep. All day long our bodies are like antenna for stimuli. Light from screens, noise from traffic, coworkers, televisions, and the millions of other things all vying for our attention. …


One of the easiest things we can do to ensure good sleep is sticking to a sleep schedule. For best results, you should be going to bed and waking up at the same time daily.

I personally was horrible at sticking to a sleep schedule during my high school and college years, which always resulted in going to bed at crazy hours and never feeling fully refreshed the next day. …


Mattress is everything! Your mattress should be replaced between 5 to 10 years or if it’s uncomfortable. You should feel relaxed and comfortable in your bed. Consider changing it out with a mattress that offers a 90-day money-back guarantee. That way you can invest a little more money and if it doesn’t fit your personal taste/body type you can switch it out.
