Here's a simple toolkit to help improve sleep:
1) View sunlight by going outside within 30-60 minutes of waking. Do that again in the late afternoon, prior to sunset. If you wake up before the sun is out and you want to be awake, turn on artificial lights and then go outside once the sun rises.

Raising your stress threshold & not getting triggered is not a mysterious process. It involves learning to suppress action and speech despite high levels of adrenaline. Science supported tools for this = ice baths, cold showers, cyclic hyperventilation w/60sec pauses every min.
Of course be smart: don’t do the hyperventilation in water (!) and realize that the goal is not to become passively detached to your experience but rather to maintain mental clarity and adaptive decision making despite the increased adrenaline in your brain and body.
