2 Sleep Tips from the World’s Greatest Strength Coach

Posted by Trainer Aaron on October 21, 2010

Here are a couple sleep tips from the world’s greatest strength coach: Charles Poliquin.  They’re simple, but very effective.  Enjoy.

1. Fill out your Grateful Log before going to bed

I consider this my top tip to sleep properly. It is very simple. All you need is a diary and a pen. I ask clients to write down a full page of things they are grateful for before going to bed. Clients who comply to this advice always report amazing gains in ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Ever hurt your fingers and then realize how important they are in your day? You become more grateful for them when they heal again. I ask clients to write down at least 10 things that they are grateful for. Every sentence should begin with either “I am grateful for…” or “Thank You for….” It is very calming for the mind and it helps you look at the World in a positive light before falling asleep. It prevents the mind from racing all night, and enriches the quality of your sleep. The rule is very simple, what you appreciate, appreciates. Every single client who regular uses the grateful log has seen an increase in the quality of their lives, and the riches coming in.

2.  Answer three key questions before you to go bed, and do so by writing them in your Grateful Log

  • What did you do that was nice to someone today?
  • What did someone do nice for you?
  • What did you learn today?

Answering those questions will put your life in perspective, reset your brain on positive, and allow you to sleep better.
