Under the Covers with Renee
There's been a lot to keep us up at night lately, how do you create a sacred space for bedtime to get better quality sleep?
Getting quality sleep is my top priority for staying healthy so I do everything I can to optimize it. I don't watch the news and I turn off all electronics by 9:00 pm at the latest. My other favorite sleep biohacks are wearing my blue light blocking glasses after sunset and taking organic CBD oil 1 hour before bed. All of this supports an amazing night of rest!
What is your favorite part of your morning routine?
Sitting on my rooftop for 20 minutes each morning to get sunshine is my favorite way to wake up. It supports the natural rise in cortisol and tells my brain it's time to get going!
Do you have any small practices throughout the day for recentering yourself?
I love incorporating 20-30 minutes of meditation after lunch. When I can, I'll use the BrainTap device for an upgraded experience that boosts my energy and gives me clarity for the rest of the day.
What are you grateful for?
I'm grateful that I get to share my personal journey and health tips to people around the world through my podcast, The Biohacker Babes. It's an incredible feeling getting to connect with others on their health journey and to provide insight into personal health optimization. And even better, I get to work with my sister on this project and I'm grateful that it has brought us even closer.
What are you most looking forward to or feeling optimistic about?
While I know 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, I think it has overall brought a greater awareness around the importance of staying healthy. I'm hoping that this will empower more people to take responsibility for their own health and to begin making healthier changes.
