As a lifelong insomniac, I’ve tried everything, and here are some of the critical few that make the cut:
- Chili Pad
- Hanging upside-down or traction
- Sleep Master sleep mask and 3M E-A-Rsoft FX ear plugs
- Yogi “Soothing Caramel Bedtime” tea
- Visual overwriting (e.g. Tetris or Escape to River Cottage, Season 1)

This podcast is also brought to you by Wealthfront. Wealthfront is a massively disruptive (in a good way) set-it-and-forget-it investing service, led by technologists from places like Apple and world-famous investors. It has exploded in popularity in the last 2 years and now has more than $2.5B under management. In fact, some of my good investor friends in Silicon Valley have millions of their own money in Wealthfront. Why? Because you can get services previously limited to the ultra-wealthy and only pay pennies on the dollar for them, and it’s all through smarter software instead of retail locations and bloated sales teams.
Check out wealthfront.com/tim, take their risk assessment quiz, which only takes 2-5 minutes, and they’ll show you—for free–exactly the portfolio they’d put you in. If you want to just take their advice and do it yourself, you can. Or, as I would, you can set it and forget it. Well worth a few minutes: wealthfront.com/tim.
