What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
As a fairly obsessive person, I’m quite fascinated by HRV, from the standpoint that there are so many things both extrinsically and intrinsically that can play a role in the results. And through it, I also really like to see examples of what is possible from a behavioral standpoint.
Because of that, I thought I’d share some current success stories of clients who have put in the work and experienced tremendous improvements in their readouts. I’m sharing this as a reminder that we all have a HUGE say in our health & often a related improvement on sleep as a result.
Male, 30s, UK: Weekly HRV averages from April until now went from 29 to 88 with Early-Time Restricted Eating, sunlight, cold therapy, calendar-management, and CBD.
Male, 70s, LA: Weekly HRV were in the low 20s and now are averaging in the low 50s after adding a continuous glucose monitor (Nutriosense.io), reducing sugar/nighttime eating, and nixing naps.
Female, 50s, NYC: Monthly HRV averaged in the 30s to high 50s with consistency in sleep scheduling and light environment along with an overhaul in gut healing & blood sugar balancing protocols from my friend Nikki at NAO Wellness.
Female, 40s, Austin: HRV weekly average improved from 50s to 80s with low sugar, low stress, high sunlight lifestyle.
Female, 30s, Montana: HRV weekly average went from low 40s to low 70s with stress-reduction, mouth-taping, Heartmath, Muse, and Chilipad (sleepisaskill15 – 15% off OOLER & sleepisaskill25 – 25% off chiliPAD).
RESOURCES 🕵️♀️Resource: Product, Vagus Toning System, Neuvana This was a “Best of CES 2020” winner, and I just recently began testing it, and so far, I’ve noticed an improvement in my HRV. However, I’m also in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, so I will continue to test to see what the results are - but so far, I’m intrigued.
🕵️♀️Resource: Institution, Cardiovascular Division Heart Rate Variability Laboratory: Here are just SOME of the factors that can impact your HRV: Age, Gender, Race, Pregnancy, Clinical and demographic factors post-MI, Pet ownership, CABG, Diabetes, Insulin resistance, Fish oil consumption, Inflammatory markers, Markers of coagulation, Treatment of depression in cardiac patients, Sickle cell anemia, Valvular disease.
👆These are just a few of the reasons why HRV is such a fun puzzle. Whether or not you own a pet or take fish oil can affect your levels.
Here are some of the sleep-specific elements that could impact your sleep: Sleep-disordered breathing, Holter-based screening for sleep-disordered breathing, Continuous ECG-based detection of periodic breathing, Measurement of cyclic variation of heart rate parameters, Relationship of cyclic variation of heart rate parameters and sleep-disordered breathing in older adults, Relationship of cyclic variation of heart rate parameters and mortality in older adults, Relationship of periodic breathing heart rate patterns and sudden cardiac death, Relationship of periodic breathing heart rate patterns and atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery, Relationship of cyclic variation of heart rate and sleep-disordered breathing in depressed and non-depressed cardiac patients.
