9 o’clock Hoover

This handout is taken from the Simple Living Global – Back to Basic Program

The hoover comes out at 9 o’clock – where are you

What are you really up to at this time of night

The hoover has an important job to do for us

The hoover starts at 9 o’clock for round one

It does not wait around if you are not ready

The hoover has a job to clear out nonsense of the day

It also does the important filing from the day’s activities

If we are not asleep by 9 o’clock, then it comes back at 11pm for round two

If we are still up and awake at this time, then we are in serious trouble

The body starts building a backlog for this clearing stuff

If you miss the 9 o’clock hoover, then your body is going to feel more exhausted

If you miss the 11 o’clock hoover time, then you sure will need some kind of stimulants to keep going, with a false state of being like –

Alcohol
Coffee
Drugs
E-Cigarettes
Energy Drinks
Internet
Social Media
Sugar
Tobacco
TV

Note – the hoover does not wait for your time clock

The hoover just knows where you are, what time zone and what country you are in

The hoover really does work, if you allow it to do its job

We all need to take the 9 o’clock hoover seriously

We all need the 9 o’clock hoover to have vitality in our life

We all need the 9 o’clock hoover to truly support our body

Has anyone noticed, almost everyone is super exhausted

This means we need both of the hoover times every day

To have optimum benefits – go to bed before 9 o’clock

Next –

For real results – practice the 9 o’clock hoover Consistently

Commit to this Simple task and you will feel the changes

Do your best not to get distracted and get a proper sleep routine going before bedtime – this will help

The 9 o’clock hoover does not have different times on weekends and party nights

The 9 o’clock hoover is asking us for Appreciation, by using it to the max and that means everyday –

Our body wants to help us, but most of us lack the real science of Sleep and what is truly needed for maximum vitality levels

The 9 o’clock hoover works and it makes sense because the author has been living this way for 12 years

  1. Another great blog. 8 years ago I was suffering from chronic exhaustion. The author of this blog introduced me to the 9 o’clock hoover at the time. I was surviving on 3-4 hours sleep and could barely stay awake.

    It took practice to start to go to bed early. In fact it took a year and now I cannot imagine not going to bed early. It is part of my daily living.

    Going to bed early helped lift my exhaustion. A few years after it most definitely contributed to my chronic thyroid condition reversing.

    This blog is definitely one I will come back to.

  2. Thank you for this magnificent blog.

    This is a very, very timely reminder for me! I’ve been missing the 9 o’clock hoover and I really, really could use some regular and consistent 9 o’clock hoover.

  3. Raja when I first explored going to bed early I did find it a struggle. Through support from the author of this blog, Bina Pattel who suggested I go to bed an hour earlier and try this for a week. Then I would go to bed two hours earlier and so on.

    It was amazing how quickly my body responded to the rhythm of a consistent sleep pattern.
    The reason it took so long to adjust was I was so exhausted I had a massive back log of sleep to catch up with.

    There were times I would lie awake for a few hours as I would literally fight going to sleep. Bina showed me how to wind down before bed. No distractions such as TV or computers for instance.

    Our body knows when it is ready for sleep. I know as I instantly gravitate to my bed no matter what is going on around me. No matter where I am I go to bed at the same time.

  4. What a brilliant piece of writing this is. Stock full of common sense, lived experience and appreciation.

    For many years I have taken deep care of my sleep. Early nights, early rising are the norm.

    I cherish the way my body feels. I have such vitality and there is a joy in moving and living with that.

    Describing early nights and the process behind it as a ‘hoover’ is bang on. It really is like that.

    If I let my rhythm drop for some reason, I’m met with what it is like on the other side (hoover-less) and that has a huge impact beyond just how I’m feeling. It also affects my family environment, my productivity at work, how I connect with others, how much ‘me’ I can bring and much more. Degrading all that is not a place I want to be.

    I value all the ‘smiling’ statements above – every one of them true and amazing to feel.

    Thank you for this re-grounding Simple Living Global. A true gift for all and something that should be taught across the world from a young age.

  5. I have been teaching the 9 o’clock hoover for a decade.

    To me the hoover knows what we have been up to and it has a job to do for us to clear out the nonsense of the day and file anything that is needed, that we need of value and then this gives us the space to have a deeper real quality of sleep.

    The sleep blog on this website is well worth reading and the 9 o’clock hoover will make even more sense why it is this time and not later, which many of us wish it was.

    I for one thought it was crazy to go to bed so early and now it’s the normal and for me this is about taking real Responsibility for the way I am living.

    I regenerate at this time and most days I can do it, but on days I cannot I do make sure there is a nap or super early nights to do the ‘catch up’ thing if it is needed. However, this is very rare and I realise I am so consistent that I do not need to catch up on sleep, as my body is full of vitality and I generally feel like I do two days work in a 24 hour day.

    This simple blog offers us so much if we choose to pay attention, but most of us are not ready to give up the late night lifestyle which from my experience requires stimulation of some kind to keep going.

    We have an internal body clock and science has confirmed this.
    Simple Living Global has spelt it out clearly to us in the Sleep blog on this website.

    So what is it about us humans who just override our natural rhythm and go against it with the plethora of distractions, to stay awake for no true reason?

    I value and appreciate the 9 o’clock hoover and for me it has been a life changer and something I will never ignore – ever.

  6. Thank you for this majestic blog.

    I am totally exhausted at the moment.

    And I am acutely aware that this is mostly due to the fact that I have not been taking advantage of the 9 o’clock hoover.

    As the author delineates in the blog, there are plenty of good reasons to use the the 9 o’clock hoover every night. I would like to enjoy those many benefits of the hoover!

    But, perhaps more than that, my motivation to start using the 9 o’clock hoover consistently is the concern I have that exhaustion is a precursor to illness.

    If the body is exhausted, and therefore depleted of life-force energy and vitality, how can it maintain optimum function? Something is going to give.

  7. I laughed when I first heard this phrase, “the 9 o’clock hoover” and the understanding of it’s meaning.
    I am visualising right now a carpet which is filled with dust and debris, tired from wear, tear and neglect.
    Transferring this to ourselves and our body, this is what we are doing when we ignore the natural rhythms of sleep or push through our tiredness to stay awake.

    The body slowly accumulates poisons it has been unable to cleanse from sleep deprivation and missing the hoover.
    The consequences of missing out are many, varied and well known.

    The benefits are many more than many and it’s also free! All it needs is application and you begin to feel them.
