The Day You Learned The Secrets Of Good Sleep

Sleep is perhaps the most underrated activity. It is very important to have good sleep, something that today’s lifestyle makes difficult for a lot of people to achieve.

I will share with you some secrets of good sleep that will make you a better sleeper, and in turn make you healthier and more attractive.

Work hard enough, exhaust yourself

You sleep best when you’re tired to death.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s physical tiredness or mental tiredness. There is certain amount of physical as well as mental activity that is exhausting. When you’re exhausted, you’ll have no trouble sleeping.

For most people who have trouble sleeping, I would say the reason is as simple as them not working hard enough through the day.

If your day involves lazying around or working where you don’t have enough physical or mental strain, and you can’t sleep well, then here’s what you need to do: Play sports or exercise, read books, write, solve puzzles, work hard.

Find physical and mental activities of your interest and do them to exhaustion. More physical exhaustion, the better. It will not only help you with sleep but also improve your physical and/or mental abilities.

Don’t plan your next day in bed

Thinking about the next day is the worst mistake you could do that would ruin your sleep.

Some of you will be grateful today especially for this tip. Here’s why: Thinking in bed about what you’re going to do tomorrow happens so innocuously that it’s hard to realize that it’s a problem. It’s very easy to explain it away by saying that you were doing it because you weren’t able to sleep.

No. I say you weren’t able to sleep because you were thinking about the to-do’s for the next day.

Remember how you can’t sleep the night before you have planned a picnic, or have a job interview, or some super important event? That happens because when you have something important coming, your mind busies itself thinking about and preparing for it. That keeps you awake.

Planning the next day is, albeit less intense, essentially the same process for your mind. In an effort to plan, you keep arranging and rearranging things in your mind, and that keeps sleep away.

Planning your next day is good, but do it before the bed time. Once in bed, you can think about the pleasant experiences from the past, but don’t plan your tomorrow if sleeping well is important to you.

Don’t check your phone in middle of sleep

Sometimes you have to get up in middle of your sleep to go the bathroom or to drink water. If you check your phone’s notifications then, it’s almost certain that you won’t sleep as well after that.

We live in the era of smart phones where we have various apps constantly sending notifications. Seeing notifications excites the mind; and some of them may call for action. Thus, they will drag your mind out of sleep and you’ll find it difficult to go back to sleep.

You must keep the phone on silent mode and away while sleeping. And at any cost resist temptation to check the phone until after your sleep is complete. Whatever the notifications may be about, it can wait.

Use bed only to sleep, or sex

This point may not seem terribly important, but it’s a fact that our bodies adapt to the environment. So if you can do it, you want to associate bed to sleep and sleep alone. Or sex.

Don’t use bed for any other activity other than sleeping or “sleeping”. Reading, watching TV,.. should ideally be done outside of the bedroom. I personally don’t have a very large house, so I do a lot of those things in my bedroom, but not on the bed.

I’ll give you an example of body adapting to the environment. If you have a boring office job, you may not feel like going to work when you wake up. But once you’re in the office, you’re ready for work. That’s your body adapting to the environment and changing your energy level for doing what you’re supposed to do at the time.

Likewise, once you associate bedroom, or at least your bed with sleeping, your body will automatically get ready to sleep when it’s in that environment.

Keep the room dark

You should keep the room you sleep in as dark as possible.

Some would consider this a preference and not terribly important for good sleep. But there’s a reason why it is important to sleep in dark.

For thousands of years we have been sleeping in the dark of night. So our bodies are best adapted to sleeping in the dark.

When the room is dark, it’s relaxing to eyes and there are no distractions for mind. Definitely better for sleep.

Wake up at the same time everyday

I always used to think that sleeping at the same time every night was very important for good sleep, and it is, but until recently I never thought that waking up at the same time everyday was terribly important.

Waking up at the same fixed time everyday has multiple benefits for the body. Chief among them are: regular bowel movement and right distribution of energy throughout the day.

We have an internal clock which we call body clock. The body clock starts at the time you wake up, and determines your biological functions and energy levels at different times of the day.

Starting the body clock at the same time everyday means that you’ll feel tired at the same time. The body will let you know exactly when it’s time to sleep.

If you wake up everyday at 6am and go to bed at 10pm, then waking up at 8am would disrupt your body clock and you may not be quite ready for sleep at the usual time of 10pm. It will be 2 hours too early for the body to sleep, and you’ll wonder why you aren’t able to sleep.

Even if you sleep later than your usual time, wake up at the same time. The next day your body clock will make you feel tired and sleepy sooner than your usual time to compensate for the lost sleep. And that sleep, you can bet, will be good.

Have early dinner, and keep it light

Have your dinner at least two hours before going to bed.

What you eat for dinner is also important. Sometimes you may have felt burning sensation in the stomach, or dry throat in middle of the night. That’s because you may have had spicy-oily food for dinner.

Your dinner should be light and non-spicy, non-oily food.

Don’t sleep during day

If you must, you can take a short nap of 20 to 30 mins. But sleeping for long during the day is not recommended as it may affect your night’s sleep.

The body needs to get tired and exhausted through the day, so that it is best prepared to sleep at night. Sleeping during the day will obstruct that process.

Day is for work, night is primarily for sleep. Keep it that way.

Beta Vs. Alpha Male Responses

In the interest of not giving out your personal information too soon in order to please the woman, and thereby lowering your status in her eyes, Purushatma has suggested this conversational tip –

Do not offer more information than is minimally necessary, and instead of immediately answering like a slave, offer some teasing and mystique.

Quoting the examples from his blog:

She: So how was your weekend?
Beta: It was nice.  I spent some hours at home on Saturday relaxing, then on Sunday I did some chores and went to a fun party in the evening with friends.
Alpha: Uhh.  Couldn’t wait for Monday to come.

She: So what do you do?
Beta: At the start of my career I was a programmer.  But now I am an analyst with this transport firm.  It is big firm with offices in many states.
Alpha: Covert arts.
She: No, seriously what do you do?
Alpha: Hehe you will find out soon.  Are you a recruiter?

She: So what should we do this Saturday?
Beta: We can go watch this film XYZ that has been recently getting some good reviews.  We can enjoy popcorn and coke during the film.  Afterwards, whatever you say.
Lesser Beta: We can go for a drive, listen to some music on the way.  Maybe a brewery?
Alpha: Come to my place around 2.  I’ll have a plan.

She: Have you dated many women?
Beta: Some.  I was married for a short while.  My longest relationship outside marriage was 2 years.  I did a speed dating thing in January, and it was quite interesting.
Lesser Beta: Of course.  Still haven’t found the right one.
Lower Alpha: Let’s just say I ain’t a virgin.
Alpha: Are you serious?

Okay, you got the idea.

Ridiculous News: London police chief: Attack victims show city’s diversity

Ridiculous News on this blog documents lunacy coming out of liberals and their propaganda arm – the mainstream media.

A few days after the London Bridge terrorist attack by Evil Losers ISIS when politicians and the media should be talking about the threat of Islamic terrorism and problems posed by immigration, we see this:

The commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police says the nationalities of the eight victims in the terrorist attack on London Bridge tell a proud story of London’s unique makeup.

“It’s desperately sad and poignant but among those who died is someone who’s British, there are French, Australian, Canadian, Spanish,” Cressida Dick told The Associated Press in an interview Saturday.

What a fail of a reframe!

Liberals and the MSM won’t leave any opportunity to glorify their failed ideals of diversity and open-boarders. But stories likes these expose their lunacy.

I can’t say who is a bigger moron. The London police chief (who’s a WOMAN, no wonder!), or Gregory Katz of ABC News for writing this story.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:

Body Language Read Of Kathy Griffin’s Apology

In the last post I wrote about what I think of Kathy Griffin’s remarks about president Trump in a press conference where she said Trump broke her. (For more context refer to that post.)

The press conference proved that her apology which she issued before the press conference was not sincere.

Beucause one can either be apologetic or defiant and doubling down. She clearly doubled down on going after president Trump, which means her apology didn’t mean shit after all.

Scott Adams, who said that her apology seemed 100% sincere to him, has withdrawn his sympathy from her on one of his Periscope sessions after the press conference.

What surprised me about Scott Adams, however, is that he believed her apology to be sincere when he saw it. I say this because he is one of the finest observers of human nature and body language and is trained in persuasion. Although, he had made it clear that he was biased towards Kathy because he knew her personally and liked her. She had given voice to one of his comic chatacters on Dilbert TV show. That is perhaps the reason for his failing to see (or failing to acknowledge) the tells of insincerity in Kathy Griffin’s apology.

Now since the press conference made it apparent that her apology was insincere, I thought there had to be a good body language analysis of her apology that revealed the tells.

And I found one.

I am not a body language expert, but I know more about the subject than the average person. With that level of knowledge, I can tell that this analysis is good.

Donald Trump Broke Kathy Griffin. Or Did He?

Kathy Griffin Stunt

Comedian Kathy Griffin who works for CNN posted this picture in which she is holding the faux blood-covered severed head of president Donald Trump.

The image is quite graphic and understandably disturbing to anyone because it immediately brings to mind one of the worst enemies of the humankind in the present times – ISIS-Evil Losers.

And who is the biggest enemy of ISIS at this time? Right, Donald Trump. See how that makes the photo disturbing?

She posted this ISIS-style beheading photo thinking that the world would applaud her for her bravery, and probably thought that president Trump or the people close to him won’t react on it.

However, this stunt of hers was followed by severe backlash from conservatives and Trump supporters. Not only that, leftist Chelsea Clinton and Kathy’s colleague at CNN, Anderson Cooper, condemned her act.

In addition to that, CNN finally severed ties with her by cancelling her show after advertisers pulled away from the network because they refused to fire her or even issue a statement for a long time following the backlash over her act.

This is what Trump’s reaction to the photo was:

Donald Trump Jr. sent out a bunch of tweets to Kathy’s employer, CNN, questioning them on their silence about her act, and putting pressure on them to fire her. Meanwhile, Melania Trump questioned her mental health.

“As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing,” the first lady said in a statement issued by her press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, in response to a reporter’s question late Wednesday morning. “When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”

Looking at such an unexpected turn of events, Kathy Griffin issued an apology.

Scott Adams said that Kathy Griffin’s apology looked 100% sincere to him. Let me say here that Scott Adams may be one of the greatest observers of human nature and persuasion experts of our time.

What followed, however, proved Scott Adams’ observation about her apology wrong. And it also showed what a vile and disgusting creature Kathy Griffin is!

Shortly after issuing an apology, Kathy Griffin called a press conference to cry about how Trump family was bullying her!

One wonders whether she’s apologetic, or defiant and doubling-down? Can’t be both, right?

In the press conference, she calls Trump a bully, and says that Trump and his family were personally tying to ruin her life forever. Not only that, she brings up sexism by saying she she’s a woman in a very male-dominated field. She makes some jokes about Trump and, like a strong woman, says “He picked a wrong redhead.” But shortly after, she cries about losing her career and says that Trump broke her!

Really? Trump broke her? Or maybe, just maybe, her thoughtless and outrageous act caused her to lose her job and broke her? What was she thinking when she came out with an ISIS-style beheading photo of the president of her country?

Some people, including Scott Adams, say that she’s a comedian, and being provocative is what she does for a living. Hence, people should not be reacting the way they are about her act.

Now I am all for free speech and free expression of art, but note that Kathy Griffin is not some random comedian. She is a long-time Trump-hater who has called Trump “a piece of shit” and even said that she’ll go after his 11-year-old-son Barron in the past.

When that person comes up with a beheading photo of Trump, it is not funny. Kathy Griffin’s general position and her past remarks about Trump change the context here.

By the way, even if it had come from a random comedian, the photo is by no means funny. If there’s an ambiguity about the photo being funny, I fail to see it.

The truth of the matter is this: Women don’t know how to take responsibility for their actions. When their actions land them into trouble, they will expertly reframe the situation to take the victim position. This is classic female nature!

This tweet succinctly describes the press conference.

Stefan Molyneux has presented an excellent commentary on Kathy Griffin’s actions. It’s a worth a watch/listen.

He ends his commentary by addressing the death threats Kathy said she has been getting online. Here’s what he says: Suppose if Kathy Griffin receives in an email a photo of someone holding her severed bloody head, would she consider that a death threat?

ISIS, The Evil Losers

The Master Persuader Donald Trump called ISIS “evil losers”.

While the idiots at CNN and Washington Post bashed Trump for it (can you believe that?), here’s why it is weapons-grade persuation:

What kinds of people join the Losers? Mostly young males. And you know what brand young males do not want on them? Right: Losers.

If you call them monsters, they like it. If you call them ISIS or ISIL they put it on a flag and wave it around. If you call them non-Muslim, it just rolls off their backs because they have Korans and stuff. Almost any other “brand” you can imagine is either inert or beneficial to Loser recruitment.

Loser is different. No one joins the Loser movement. Try at home, with your family or friends, to concoct a more effective brand poisoning than Loser. You probably can’t. Remember, your brand has to fit with future confirmation evidence. The Losers on the battlefield will continue to be losing, so the brand is engineered to get stickier over time. Your alternative idea for a brand solution has to have that quality of future confirmation too. Good luck finding a better persuasion brand.

ISIS are Evil Losers.

But you know who else are losers? All the people on the left who would gleefully lose their women, nations, and the civilization to the alien migrants.
