EP 48: My number one way to make yourself harder to kill

The past Four shows (linked to below) have been all about helping individuals make themselves harder to kill by improving their fitness. Two of the best ways to impact that rely on nutrition and metabolic conditioning. Why? because those are the two factors that lie at the bottom of the fitness pyramid. Yet, there is something even more important than fitness and nutrition in the effort to make you harder to kill. It is the foundation that the fitness pyramid is built on. It is sleep. Sleep is the one thing that will have the greatest impact on just about every single thing in your life. I know listeners will benefit from the lessons learned in this episode because they benefitted me the most. I used to constantly deprive myself of sleep, seeing it as a crutch and a point of vulnerability. Now-a-days I ensure I have a full 7-9 hour window for my body to engage in the most restorative action possible.

This the book I refer to in the show, Why We Sleep and Dream by Dr. Matthew Walker

Here is his argument for why sleep is important:

Scientists have discovered a revolutionary new treatment that makes you live longer, it enhances your memory, makes you more creative, makes you look more attractive, keeps you slim, lows food cravings, protects you from cancer and dementia. Wards of colds, and the flu, lowers your risk of heart attacks and stroke, not to mention diabetes. You’ll feel happier, less depressed, and less anxious. Are you interested?
