Hey, Sleepy Head!...Dr. Chatterjee Explores the Power of Sleep and Easy Fixes for Better Rest
Updated: Feb 6
I really value Feel Better; Live More. I especially love Dr. Chatterjee's bitesize episodes--summaries of his longer form episodes. Great stuff and so humbly well done.
This episode on sleep is well worth a full listen. It starts slowly, so beware, but then blew me away with its insights. As someone who powerfully feels the difference between my healthy self now and my sleep-impoverished self of the past, I cannot agree more with the importance of sleep emphasized here.
Some doozies to consider:
"Sleep is the most important health contributor, before diet and activity."
"Sleep is the best performance-enhancing drug."
As for alcohol, "sedation is not sleep."
As for coffee, join me in switching to decaffeinated! Had no idea that decaf is not no-caf. Who knew?! Think of it as diet soda and consider making the switch. Your sleep will improve and your mornings will not be impacted. I made the switch to decaf, and as I ease into the day with my morning coffee, I feel and taste no difference. But at night, I feel the difference big time as I fall asleep like a baby.
Enjoy! And here's to our health!
