Like yeah basically get up and get out and -- -- you get nothing get out.
And do some exercise when you're in -- you know we -- do we hit the snooze button.
Our on our -- -- on the clock.
Instead roll out of bed.
Give me fifty pushups if you would a couple of sit ups get your coffee if you need to do that don't get addicted to that however.
But the important thing -- you start that -- with movement and put the lights on because that will cut back on the production of melatonin.
Melatonin makes you sleep a little bit war.
Talk about sleep -- obviously that's one of them -- cut back on eating high calorie foods and cards.

And so to get into what we call the harmonic resonate in frequency how I deal resonating frequency we can eat foods that are richer.
In resonating frequencies we can exercise that also increases are resonating frequencies and you could do something which is really easy.
They are now products out there.
Though the one that I talk about all the time the Phillips -- watch within natural resonating frequencies it interacts with -- Frequencies making them harmonic frequencies.
