Avoid your second wind

Avoid your second wind

Aim to be in bed - and asleep - by 11pm. Waiting until after 11pm can give you a ‘second wind’ which is when cortisol can come into play, because your body thinks it needs to push on for some reason. Cortisol makes you alert and supplies energy when what you need is to feel drowsy, relaxed and ready to close your eyes and drift off. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), sleeping before 11pm (and getting out of bed by 7am) is considered a prescription for good health via quality sleep.
