158: Sleep Deprivation: A Public Health Crisis
Everywhere you turn it seems there is a new diet or exercise program being marketed to you, but how often do you see the wellness industry pushing the importance of sleep?
Sleep is the linchpin to your health, according to Matthew Walker Ph.D., who wrote the awesome book, Why We Sleep.
Matthew Walker is Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and Founder and Director of the Center for Human Sleep Science. He is has been deep in the study of sleep for more than 20 years and his book is both illuminating and horrifying.
I strongly encourage every human who values their health to read this book and in this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I highlight some of the biggest takeaways from Walker’s book and dish out a few of my own tips for better sleep hygiene.
