Ep 203: 7 Tips To Improve Your Sleep By Neuroscientist Andrew Huberman PhD

In this episode we explore one of the most important topics we've never discussed, sleep. An epidemic impacting more people than Covid. If you're not optimising your sleep you're putting yourself at risk of heart attacks, strokes, dementia and depression. So to ensure that doesn't happen to you listen as I break down the teachings of Stanford Professor Andrew Huberman. The advice of Dr. Huberman is quite simple: If you drink anything that interferes with your Adenosine (like coffee and energy drinks), experiment to preserve your levels of Adenosine right (you should feel sleepy at night and sleep deeply). Exercise within 30 minutes of waking up. Use cold showers in the morning to phase shift your wake time forward. Viewing the sunset increases your resistence to artificial light in the evening. Do not get light between 11 pm and 4 am. Be consistent on the previous points. Napping is ok in the normal day cycle (somewhere between 12 pm to 3 pm, from 20 to 30min). If you have problem controlling thoughts dedicate time to control your mind with your body through yoga or meditation.
