The Morning Mind: Use Your Brain to Master Your Day and Supercharge Your Life by Dr. Rob Carter III and Dr. Kirti Salwe Carter

By Dr. Rob Carter III and Dr. Kirti Salwe Carter
“The modern lifestyle puts 99% of us in an ‘unbalanced sleep state,’” “But with the right information, we can add stability to our lives, including our sex life.” That information can be found in The Morning Mind, aim to put the everyday person’s brain and body back into balance through simple steps to supercharge a morning routine, resulting in productivity and enjoyment over the course of the entire day.
Your Mind, Sex, and Sleep
Your bedroom, according to the National Sleep Foundation, is designed for two things: sex and sleep. Here is the problem. Most people are not getting enough of either. However, recent research suggests fixing one could fix the other.
Millennials are having the least amount of sex, but the researchers say it’s not due to longer working hours or increased pornography use. And research has shown that a lack of quality sleep for the right number of hours a night can lead to a decline in mood, libido, and romantic motivation.
Our bodies regulate sleep in much the same way that they regulate eating, drinking, and breathing. This suggests that sleep serves a similar critical role in our health and well-being.  If you’re having trouble sleeping soundly, studies show having sex with your partner (or yourself) can help improve the quality of your sleep. Cutting calories can boost your sex life and your sleep.
Practice mindful meditation and deep, relaxing breathing. Slow breathing has been shown to put the nervous system in a position to help promote sleep and better sex.

Why do we need sleep?
Although it is difficult to answer the question, "Why do we sleep?" scientists have developed several theories that together may help explain why we spend a third of our lives sleeping. Understanding these theories can help deepen our appreciation of the function of sleep in our lives.
The Morning Mind will help you understand how simple tools can be used to calm your mind and better, “hack” into your Wizard. You can improve how your entire body responds to daily stress and better defend against the perils of life. It is imperative that you make space in your life for ten to fifteen minutes of relaxation or meditation to get rid of any potential distractions, like the demands of other people, smartphones, and computers.
Most humans will acknowledge that sleep is absolutely necessary. People often struggle to function after even just one sleepless night. Poor sleep over the long term has been linked to a host of negative health effects, from heart disease and stroke to weight gain and diabetes.
What to eat for better mornings?
We know that eating fewer calories to see if, apart from weight loss, affects other important aspects of life like mood, sleep and sex. The food you start your day with has a huge effect on your physical, mental, and emotional state for that day. Not everyone needs to eat breakfast, but those who do should eat a small, healthy breakfast.  
Certain foods can be consumed to improve concentration and mental clarity.
