Sleepy Time


  • The song of the day is Enter Sandman by Metallica and can be found here: https://amzn.to/2pM9g1k
  • Tim tells a story from the past weekend
  • Real Ayurveda’s look at getting sleep
  • Sleep induces the good Kapha qualities and the much needed Tamas qualities
  • Contrary to what commodity Ayurveda and Yoga say, Tamas is good
  • Without proper Tamas you cannot fall asleep, you cannot pause, you cannot exist in human form
  • Sattva is about balance, Rajas is about activity and Tamas is about resilience
  • You need all three (Sattva, Rajas and Tamas) in order to thrive
  • If you do not have resilience, you do not have energy to withstand anything
  • It’s not only about the amount of sleep you get, it is also about the quality of sleep you get
  • Kapha is what prepares you for sleep
  • There are two main Kapha times in the day, the 4hrs (ish) following sunrise and the 4hrs (ish) following sunset
  • If you work shifts other than the regular day shift, you do NOT have to quit your job in order to get good sleep
  • You need to prepare yourself for sleep because you must have energy to go to sleep
  • If your nervous system is too depleted you cannot get good sleep and you end up in a vicious cycle of sleep deprivation without knowing you are in it
  • The Rain App that we talk about is this one: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/rain-rain-sleep-sounds/id478687481
  • It’s ok to change your sleeping schedule if you have to, instead of just fighting to go to sleep at a certain time when it’s not feasible
  • Changing your body temperature drastically during the day and/or evening will help you get great sleep
  • Hot Yoga has a lot of great benefits and solid sleep is one of them
  • If you do not have access to great hot yoga, a hot Epsom salt bath can help

  • During a session of sleep you must achieve both the REM state and the NREM state in order to feel inspired and refreshed
  • Oil application on the feet may work for some but it has not worked for us; it is too high maintenance
  • The vaseline movie reference Tim is making is from the 1996 Striptease with Burt Reynolds
  • The dance movie reference Tim is making is from the 1983 Risky Business with Tom Cruise
  • The internal nourishment of the body should take priority over the external nourishment
  • Make sure that your actions and words during the day will allow you to "go to sleep at night"
  • What do you want your last thought to be before falling asleep?
