What I Use To Simulate Sleep — *Without* Actually Sleeping…

Imagine stepping into a world where tranquility meets technology, stress easily fades away, and lasting focus reigns supreme — along with being able to simulate a full sleep cycle without actually sleeping, which I often do if I wake up in the wee hours of 3:30 or 4:00 a.m., or if I'm on an airplane.

The Easy Hack I Use To Take An Icy Cold Shower (Even If The Shower Water Isn't Cold Enough)

I've stumbled upon what I'd call the “ultimate shower upgrade”— the Anta Arctic hookup — and let me tell you, it's one of the best updates I've made to my bathroom routine in a long time. 

This ingenious biohack allows me to transform any ordinary shower into a refreshing, ice-cold oasis no matter where I am, simply by filling it with ice and placing it under the shower head — which is especially nice if I'm at a hotel in a place like Florida or California (and this thing is very, very portable and lightweight). 

My bathroom is already a sanctuary of relaxation, with gadgets and gizmos aplenty to optimize my bathing experience, from soothing red lights on my bathroom ceiling to a hefty bag of Epsom salts for muscle relief and fighting magnesium deficiency (plus my favorite personal care products, including tallow soap for gentle cleansing).

But the Anta Arctic hookup stands out as one of my latest, coolest (ha!) finds. Its portability means I never have to miss out on the many benefits of invigorating cold showers, whether I'm at home, in a hotel, or elsewhere.

Using it is a breeze: just fill it with ice, let the cold water flow over it, and enjoy the icy cascade. Plus, it comes with various hookups to suit different showerhead types, though sometimes, I opt for the lazy approach and simply drape it over my head under the rain shower.

Pretty “cool,” right? If you're intrigued, check out Anda Arctic here to discover more about how to elevate your shower game to the next level.

Your Father's Day Gift Guide Is Here! Elevate Dad's Day with 12 Legendary Gifts for Health and Happiness

Ben Greenfield and family

This year, I’m helping you ditch the usual ho-hum Father’s Day gifts (like a watch he’ll never wear, argyle socks, and yet another boring blue button-down shirt). 

In my hot-off-the-press Father’s Day Gift Guide, you’ll discover gifts as epic and legendary as the dad in your life, tailored to his unique interests and passions. 

Whether your dad is a fitness buff, an avid reader, or a tech enthusiast, this brand-new gift guide offers a unique selection that will make this Father’s Day truly unforgettable…

Here’s a sneak peek of a few highlights from this year's gift guide:

  • HygieneLab: Give him the gift of confidence and well-being from the inside out by enhancing the man in your life's daily routine with premium, non-toxic personal care products. I love their toxin-free deodorants, face washes, hair care, and other products that leave me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated every day.
  • Peluva Strands: Get ready to hear Dad's praises after you upgrade his footwear game with these minimalist shoes that provide unmatched comfort and natural movement while protecting and strengthening his toes, knees, and hips. Whether I'm strolling through the airport, hitting the gym, or trekking on a hike, you'll spot me sporting my Peluvas (they're hard to miss with their distinctive, foot-like appearance).
  • Maximus: I recommend this gift to ramp up Dad's metabolism, help improve his body composition, and restore his vitality. Even better, Maximus helps boost his testosterone without the harmful effects of other T boosters like damage to his liver, kidneys, and testicular function.
  • NADS: Upgrade Dad's underwear game with NADS Organic Underwear, made without harmful chemicals and toxins. This gives Dad’s crown jewels the throne they deserve. Their comfort, fit, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing I’m not exposing my goods to harmful chemicals have made them an absolute game-changer for me.
  • LucyHelp Dad conquer his daily battles by gifting him Lucy’s cognitive-enhancing nicotine gum, providing a smart, safe way to improve his mental stamina and performance — without any nasty toxins. Lucy is my go-to whenever I need that extra afternoon boost or have a busy day of work or travel, keeping my mind sharp and focused.

These are just a few examples of the exciting gifts in my officially released Father’s Day Gift Guide that your Dad will love.

I’m also hooking you up with exclusive discounts and savings to make your gift-giving even more rewarding!
