Oh sorry I didn't know "Bulletproof Diet" was a specific diet. In that case no, just general healthy eating (e.g. Mediterranean diet) is probably a better bet than some fad thing.

brain entrainment apps / light & sound machines do work. like, those fuckers will actually put you to sleep.

i do all of these except 4, 9, 10, and 11, and they ring true to me

one thing i find that works if i *can't* fall asleep is change my body temperature to a relative coldness i can stand for 5-10 minutes or so

then cover up slightly til i feel comfortable, almost snuggling my blanket, and that gets me to start dozing off

also unless you're exercising, not eating 2-3 hours before bedtime is important

if i have to eat 2 hours before bedtime i eat something light that won't cause my blood pressure to increase so much or that is easier to digest, otherwise forget about it, i can't sleep for hours and i'll wake up crappy the next morning

voted go to bed before 11pm though as the others are debatable

If you're not familiar with the Bulletproof diet, it's basically just eating a lot of butter

This list omits the obvious, that is time, and bring sure to allot yourself enough of it.

Sleep is my great non-negotiable. (Thankfully I'm not experiencing insomnia at.) Without enough of it life suxxx

sadly sleeping might be the thing I am best at, don't abide by any of this except 5 lol. w/ GAS on my headphones I think I've got falling asleep on the bus down to sub 100 seconds

12: when ready for bed, find the nearest bus

what better than the soft background rumble and the juddering and slow heaving of a bus to lull you to sleep. I'm looking at up to 40 mins of bonus kip per day, it's prime snooze real estate

occasional hobo knifings notwithstanding

Just to be safe I make sure not to exercise for at least 24 hours before going to bed

FAQ - Getting Started
I just started sleeping grounded and feel a bit strange. What could that be from?
I have noticed tingling in my feet for the first few nights I’ve been sleeping grounded. Should I be concerned?
Can I over-Earth myself? I sleep on a full body Earthing sheet and also at times use the Earthing mat on the floor at my computer. I noticed that my toes and fingers have become very sensitive. Last night I did not earth myself and my toes are fine.
Are there people who sleep grounded and don’t feel anything, or for whom grounding doesn’t work?
I am one of those electro-sensitive people you write about in the Earthing book. I have started sleeping grounded and the energy feels strange to me.
I don’t want to spend any money for any grounding device when I can make one myself. All I have to do it get a ground rod, some 20 gauge wire, and then wrap the wire around my ankle or foot at night.
Why should I buy any grounding product, like a sheet or a mat, when I can simply go barefoot?
I started sleeping on an Earthing sheet and noticed that I feel warmer. What’s going on?
I want to sleep grounded. What is the difference between a bed pad, a half-sheet, and a fitted sheet? Is one more effective than the other?
I enjoy the feel of plush cotton sheets. Can I put the Earthing sheet underneath my regular sheet?
Can I wear pajamas when I sleep on an Earthing sheet?
I like to wear socks to bed. Do my bare feet have to touch the Earthing bed sheet?
Can I wear socks when using an Earthing mat on the floor?
