What are sleep tools?

Andrew Huberman AI:

Sleep tools are strategies and methods that can help optimize your sleep. Here are some that I've discussed on the show:

  1. Light and Dark: The intensity and timing of light exposure can significantly impact your sleep patterns.

  2. Temperature: The temperature of your environment can influence the quality of your sleep.

  3. Food and Exercise: Both your diet and physical activity levels can affect your sleep.

  4. Caffeine and Supplements: Certain supplements, like inositol, can be beneficial for those who tend to wake up in the middle of the night and have difficulty falling back asleep.

  5. Digital Tools: These include non-sleep deep rest scripts and self-hypnosis tools. These are clinically and research-supported tools that can enhance your ability to fall and stay asleep.

Remember, the goal is to develop a sleep toolkit that's ideal for your specific sleep needs.
