Inversion Table. People like Joe Rogan swear by them for relieving back pain. They’re supposed to be able to decompress the spine and leg muscles and ligaments. Apparently, standing and sitting all day causes our body to compress and we actually lose inches off our height every day! We get it back a bit when we sleep due to laying horizontally but you still lose height every day. Using an inversion table regularly helps combat that as well as relaxing you after a tough workout. In fact, you can incorporate the table as part of your abs workout by doing inverted sit ups. If going fully 180° is too difficult to perform a situp, you can adjust the angle so that you are minimally inverted while still being challenging for sit ups. Get it here.

10in30 Bench Crunches. These are some really good UPPER AB crunches. You shall feel the burn with 3 sets of 10 reps. The beauty of these is that you bend your upper body past parallel, causing your abs to WORK to pick your heavy ass up. Thanks for the lasagna, mom. For added spunk, add a kettle bell or dumbbell behind your head.
Alteril Sleep Aid. These are the only sleep supplements I take. I love these because they are all natural. They have a cocktail of supplements so you don’t have to worry about buying them separately. The competing, non-natural pharmaceutical sleep aids are not healthy because they either knock you out so bad you are groggy the next day or they don’t let you get into deep REM sleep which is the most beneficial sleep cycle for repairing our body and mind. These Alteril sleep aid pills contain: Valerian root, Melatonin—a hormone, plus 2 amino acids, namely L-Tryptophan and L-Theanine. I’ve taken all of these separately, especially the L-Theanine for calmness while being alert when taking it in the morning with caffeine. L-Theanine calms the mind from restlessness and over thinking. And if you say that a little weed or wine before bedtime is all you need, sorry but both prevent you from getting good quality REM sleep. That’s why Alteril is the way to go. Get it here.

Scientists Can Now Reverse DNA Ageing in Mice. And humans are next! They said human testing can begin in as little as six months. Not only did the DNA treatment prevent further age-related damage to good cells, but it also reversed aging and the old little mice actually looked better after treatment. Wow.
