My $4,505 in Bedroom Tech 😱

I've been obsessed with improving my sleep quality for 9 years since I first realized how insanely important it was.

I've tinkered with tons of products, and now have over $4,505 worth of tools helping me sleep.

Here are my favorites 👇
The @eightsleep Mattress 🛌


I've tried most of the "cold bed" solutions and this is the only bed I've slept in where I don't regularly wakeup in a pool of sweat (yuck)

It gets COLD, is super comfy, and I miss it dearly when I'm away from home.
The @ouraring 💍


The best tool I've found for monitoring sleep quality and recovery.

Extremely useful for seeing how lifestyle changes are affecting my sleep and for giving me rapid feedback on what's aiding or hurting my physical recovery.
Color changing lights from @tweethue 💡


I have these on a timer to automatically turn the bedroom lights red at 9pm to cut out all the blue light to reduce eye strain in the evening.

Great for keeping my circadian rhythm more normal.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses from @BLUblox1 😎


These are the most effective blue light blocking glasses on the market, and I try to put them on around sundown.

Even if you look a little funny, they're worth it.
Auto-Opening Blinds ☀️


These blinds are set to automatically raise at 7am so the sun wakes me up instead of getting jarred awake by an alarm.

It's a much more pleasant, more natural way of waking up.
Dohm White Noise Machine 🌬


This is my favorite white noise machine I've found, and I've used it for over 8 years now. It uses tiny fans in an adjustable compartment so you get a natural wind noise, instead of a synthetic recorded one.
Dyson TP04 Air Purifier 😤


I didn't realize how polluted the air in my house was until I got this.

This purifier can detect how polluted the air is, then automatically adjust its filter speed accordingly until the air is clean again.
Sleep Mask 🥱


I tried fancy sleep masks like the Manta, but liked this simply one much more.

It helps get you that last 10% of light blocking you won't get from your shades, especially if you have any electronics in your room.
Alexa Echo Dot 💬


Last but not least, Alexa helps link everything together. I can control the blinds, lights, and noise machine (via a plug) from it, and set commands like "Good Night" to turn everything on and off at once.

If you're worried about COVID, ask yourself:

How many hours of sunlight do you get?

How much alcohol do you drink?

How clean is your diet?

How much intense exercise are you doing?

How much excess body fat do you have?

This is a great time to get your health in order.

I was having this conversation with @rdeliason yesterday and it's an interesting thought experiment so I figured I'd share my thoughts on:

Given COVID, should you travel to see family for this Christmas?

There are huge costs to just blindly following stay at home orders that aren't getting talked about enough:

Just because we're being told to stay home doesn't necessarily mean we should.
There are a few angles we need to think about:

- Risk to you
- Risk to family (or who you're visiting)
- Risk to society

If Jordan Peterson is writing another book it should be about overcoming the Benzos addiction he was hiding while writing the last book about getting your life in order.

Huge opportunity for him to honestly share his challenges with others suffering similar struggles.
Writing another book giving life advice without addressing that comes off as hypocritical

My mind has been completely blown.

THC is secretly legal in Texas, and you can buy it OTC in Austin.

Read on to learn about this incredible, brilliant loophole.
It turns out that THC is not one "thing." It has a bunch of different compounds, and only one of them is illegal.

Delta-9 THC is the THC you're most familiar with. But there's a very close cousin, Delta-8, that's not actually illegal.
When you buy normal weed, it has Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC, CBD, etc.

Some people figured out how to extract CBD and make pure CBD supplements, which we all know about.

But now some companies have found a way to extract the Delta-8 THC, while removing the illegal Delta-9

About a month and a half ago, I decided to get into YouTube.

I'd seen how many sales a couple extremely half-assed videos were sending for Effortless Output, and figured it'd be worth trying to grow that channel...
For the first month, I was doing all of it myself.

Shooting, editing, optimizing, lighting, etc. I tried to figure it out on my own.

@AliAbdaal made the process so, so much easier. His videos, courses, and generous help rapidly accelerated my learning.
That's why I'm SUPER excited that he's launching his "part time YouTuber academy."

Ali is going to make over $1,000,000 from his YouTube channel this year.

And now he wants to help more creators do the same.

You should 100% check it out:
