whatever this is

Quote:
Before his head hits the pillow, Sam Gagner goes through a mental checklist to make sure everything is in perfect order.

He starts with a cold shower, which activates the parasympathetic nervous system (sometimes called the “rest-and-digest system”), which allows for optimal rest and recovery.

If he’s on the road and in a hotel room, the Edmonton Oilers’ Gagner reaches for the thermostat and adjusts it to either 66 or 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Those temperatures are probably a bit low for comfort for his wife and three kids, so he has a fan blowing when he’s at home. Added benefit: white noise.

He’ll make sure the room is as dark as possible, take a whiff of lavender – another parasympathetic nervous system booster – and crawl under the covers. That’s when the earplugs go in and the eye mask slides down. Gagner is finally ready for la-la land.

“If you can try to get into a routine where you’re doing the same things before bed every night, that always helps,” he says.

Gagner takes his nighttime procedures seriously. He’s constantly looking for tips to improve the quality of his shuteye and won’t hesitate to try something from fitness and health expert Ben Greenfield’s podcast if the host offfers an intriguing recommendation. Gagner’s trainer Andy O’Brien, for instance, suggested he spray himself with cold water, a move that paid immediate dividends.

“Generally, when you’re waking up in the middle of the night, it’s because your body temperature is rising,” Gagner says. “That’s why I try to get cold before I go to bed and keep it as cold as I can. It helps me to stay asleep.”
