Being SleepFIT

Developing a foundation for resilient health and optimal life performance by becoming a conscious sleeper

What is “SleepFIT-ness”?

SleepFIT is a new and revolutionary, practical context and approach – for all types of sleepers to discover their unique sleep rhythm and performance.

Being SleepFIT is the result of developing a practical everyday mastery with your own sleep process, where you have the capability to:

  • get the sleep you need 
  • whenever you need it 
  • wherever you are!

WHY – The value of being “sleep fit”
Sleep stands alone in its immediate and long term effect on the overall quality of our daily life experience.

Our physical health, performance and psychic resilience are all negatively affected when we are under-slept or in a sleep debt.

Moreover sleep’s globally integrative nature is essential in maintaining physiological homeostasis, circadian rhythm and optimal cognitive function.

Most simply, being “sleep fit” allows you to create the foundation conditions required for maintaining vibrant health – responsive immunity, clarity of mind, sustainable energy – and a real experience of personal resilience…

No magic needed

The imperative to sleep is built into our biological circadian (24hr) rhythm, and so it’s all too common to relate sleep as something that just “should happen” (and mostly does)! (?)

This “automatic” (hopeful) way of relating to sleep, tends to leave us high and dry when life dictates that we could use it the most. 

For some, having the ability to sleep anywhere anytime, might seem a mythic ability, it is not(!), the capability is inherent, but largely untrained, in us all… 

While it’s true some of us are naturally “easier sleepers” than others, we are all susceptible to the same internal and external conditions that disturb sleep rhythm and quality. 

However, we are all fully capable of taking simple actions that will fundamentally transform our relationship to sleep such that we are confident (born of actual experience) in our ability to create the conditions to get the sleep we need when we need to.

You already have the tools…

Just as with any aspect of life we want to develop more capacity with, it is when we widen our attention to include “how-it-functions” as an integrated aspect of our life that yields the greatest results.  

Take one of our most basic human abilities, running – which most of us can do (at a certain level) without any preparation – but if we want to develop a robust running capacity, with improved speed and endurance – we must expand our attention to include preparation, diet, equipment (sleep) etc.  

No matter our natural predispositions (or “perceived” limitations) everyone possesses the ability to dramatically improve their sleep, health and life performance by taking those actions on a daily basis that create the greatest internal harmony over time – living integration.  

We do this, by becoming more aware of the feedback our body provides in response to life’s activities and how our actions directly, if subtly, affect our sleep and daily rhythm.

But, just as in training for your first 5k, your facility with running organically improves as it becomes a more fully integrated part of your day.  

Being SleepFIT means you are able to reliably get the sleep you need, giving you new confidence and peace of mind to plan your life and operate effectively throughout your day.

The realities of managing sleep daily

Although it might seem that when it comes to sleep, it “should be” as easy as “falling into bed”, but as we all know, it’s not always that simple in reality! 

There are seemingly endless reasons our sleep is disrupted, but most all fall into one, or more of four categories. 

  • Physical Space (too loud, too light, too hot/cold)
  • Physical discomfort (pain)
  • Circadian disruptions (aka jet lag/ shift work) 
  • Psychological disruptions (anxiety or excitement/anticipation)  

More on these later…

Being zero-G SleepFIT means you are at the helm of your sleep process, confident in your capacity to adapt/manage the normal disruptions of life, such that you can reliably get the sleep you need on any given day, leaving you invaluable peace-of-mind to plan and operate effectively in all aspects of life.

Sleep makes the ultimate difference

During times of prolonged high stress – where our current baseline health becomes a real factor in our ability to respond to the challenges of life as they are presented. 

The simplest, most effective way to build a foundation of robust health, to improve overall mental and physical health and resilience, is by addressing our sleep… 

Sleep is the only action we can take that measurably – scientifically and through experience- makes every aspect of our mental and physical function (life) better.
