Your Gift: Week 1 of the brainSHIFT Protocol

The very foundation of the brainSHIFT Protocol is SLEEP. Sleep is so crucial to our well-being because it impacts every single system in our body. That’s why we always start by examining your sleep and taking steps to improve it.

Begin Here: The 7-Day Sleep Challenge

Let’s reset your reset circadian rhythm so you can enjoy restful sleep and increased daytime energy.

Here’s How:

  • For the next 7-days, follow the steps below.
  • For even better results, commit to doing this for 14 days.
sleep schedule

Step 1: Sleep Schedule

Sleep Schedule: For one week, go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day. Doing this reinforces your body’s natural circadian rhythm.

digital detox

Step 2: Digital Detox

Digital Detox: Avoid using digital devices for at least 30 minutes before bedtime (60+ minutes is even better). This includes your phone, TV, laptop, and Kindle.


Step 3: brainDUMP

Use an old-fashioned pen and paper to get racing thoughts out of your head and onto paper before bed. Include to-do lists, worries, exciting ideas, etc.


Step 4: brainPAUSE

Use meditation to process thoughts and emotions. Guided techniques help you shift from digital chaos to a sense of tranquility before bed.

Why Digital Detox Matters

What if I told you that one simple change in your evening routine could dramatically improve your sleep? If you struggle to fall and stay asleep, it’s a sign that your brain is overstimulated.

One of the leading causes of this is exposure to digital devices before bed. The combination of blue light and the dopamine hit you get each time you hear your phone ding is a recipe for sleep disaster.

How To Do It
Follow these steps for 1 week and pay attention to how your sleep changes during this time. For better results, extend the practice for 2 weeks (and keep it going for life!).

  • Light a candle and spend a few minutes longer on your nighttime hygiene rituals.
  • Sip a cup of herbal tea.
  • Write down 3 things you’re grateful for today.
  • Read a book (but not on your Kindle!).
  • Take a few quiet moments to connect with your partner, child, or fur baby.

Bonus: Try the 7-Day Sleep Challenge with Your Team

Looking for a way to boost morale and productivity on your team? Challenge yourself and your team to take part in a 7-Day Sleep Challenge.

Take the Busy Brain Test Again

Once you’ve successfully followed these steps for at least 7 days, I encourage you to take the Busy Brain Test again and see how your score changes.

When maintained for at least 10 days, participants in the brainSHIFT Protocol report an average reduction of 25% in their Busy Brain score.
