CrossFit Koncepts Testimonial from Dave

Great Sleep? It's all about CONSISTENCY and COLD!

Getting a good night's sleep is the foundation for physical and mental health. You can workout like a Demon, and diet like a Saint, but if you're not getting good quality sleep, it's all for naught! 

If you are a regular reader of the CrossFit Koncepts website, then you are familiar with Dr. Matthew Walker. He is an internationally recognized expert, author, and lecturer, on sleep. His TED Talk on sleep has over 9.5 million views!

In the video below, Dr. Walker talks about how to get to sleep, and improve the sleep you are getting. Not to spoil the big reveal, but he mentions two things that will improve your sleep:

1) CONSISTENCY - getting to bed and waking up at the same time every day. This allows your bodies biological cycles to become stable and train the body to prepare for sleep. 

2) COLD - your body needs to experience a drop in temperature to move into the sleep cycle. In order to do that, your bedroom needs to be significantly cooler than your body temperature. The optimal bedroom temperature? 65 degrees!

Here's the video so that you can get this information straight from Dr. Walker:
