At Nido we are all about efficiency and effectiveness, and love to find innovative ways to improve sleep (and life in general)!
Here’s a few sleep tips picked up from a recent Tim Ferriss video.
- Bedtime Nightcap Cocktail - this one is intriguingly simple. We have long been fans of using Apple Cider Vinegar as a tonic, though until recently I would normally take a splash of it with water first thing in the morning. When I saw Tim Ferriss claiming the following mix could knock you out like a tranquilizer I was more than willing to test it out. It did work pretty well!
* 2T apple cider vinegar
* 1T raw honey
* Add hot water to taste. Knock it back and say Goodnight.
- Light Blocking - this one is a no-brainer considering the plethora of information on the topic around the internet. But how many of us actually wear a sleep mask? If you are battling for sleep quality, especially if your sleeping time coincides with some daylight hours, consider giving this remedy a second look. The trick is to find a mask that is both functional and comfortable. Tim Ferriss recommends a brand called Sleep Master, though Amazon states it doesn’t deliver direct to New Zealand. We say, try local kiwi brand Natural State (https://www.naturalstate.co.nz/).
- Sleep Machine - again, not too many people I know have taken a punt on one of these contraptions. I had been looking online at this Marpac brand for quite some time. The machine itself has a groovy old-school look about it. According to Ferriss, many of the world’s top performers he interviewed for his hit new book “Tools of Titans” are placing specific focus on Sleep Optimisation, and using a sleep machine is one increasingly popular advanced method. Trying anything that may improve one’s sleep experience makes perfect sense to us.
At Nido we love the idea of hacking key performance enablers. And not just sleep, though sleep is probably the best place to start in the quest to improve your overall quality of life. It’s why we chose to launch a better premium mattress as our first product!We love hacking and experimenting with new and inventive solutions to life’s daily challenges. Look for regular ideas from us - tips and tricks that you can play around with to help enhance your version of The Good Life.
