Why We Sleep
“Why We Sleep”. Start with the amazing podcast with Matthew Walker on the Joe Rogan Podcast; but if you really want to get all the knowledge immediately, pick up the book.
I was shocked to learn that one night of sleeping for only 6 hours was enough to derail my health. 7 hours of sleep is the minimum amount we need (7-9 hours of sleep is recommended), and the amount of people that can perform well on 6 hours of sleep without compromising their health is 0 percent. 0 percent! If you still think you can do it and escape the negative effects, this book is for you. Lack of sleep is connected to weight gain, loss of memory and concentration, mood swings, and much much more!
This book changed my life and my scope of practice with my clients, and it can change yours too.
“Inadequate sleep—even moderate reductions for just one week—disrupts blood sugar levels so profoundly that you would be classified as pre-diabetic”.
“We estimate that more than 50 percent of all children with an ADHD diagnosis actually have a sleep disorder, yet a small fraction know of their sleep condition and its ramifications. A major public health awareness campaign by governments—perhaps without influence from pharmaceutical lobbying groups—is needed on this issue”.
“Routinely sleeping less than six or seven hours a night demolishes your immune system, more than doubling your risk of cancer”.
“Why did we ever force doctors to learn their profession in this exhausting, sleepless way? The answer originates with the esteemed physician William Stewart Halsted, MD, who was also a helpless drug addict”.
