Sleep has not been important to me. “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, was my mantra. After today’s episode … I think that’s a stupid mantra.
We spend about 1/3 of our life asleep, and 7 out of 10 in the U.S. have frequent problems sleeping.
Sleep is both a quantity AND quality thing. Number of hours varies from person to person, but most need between 7 and 9. That’s 7 to 9 hours of GOOD quality, uninterrupted shut-eye. Skimp on either one, and the negative impact is broad. Work, health & fitness, relationships, learning, etc.
Great news though … if you’ve got sleep issues, then fixing them could improve all those areas too. Imagine resolving things from fatigue to irritability to lack of concentration … even low sex drive. Hello 2nd Half awesomeness.
We hope you watch, then get a short nap.
TONS of GREAT information out there … Here are the resources we tapped for today’s episode:
