Sleep is tainted with misinformation, and it’s driving up sleep anxiety. We dove into deep research on sleep and discovered the surprising truth about six common myths. Why it matters: Evolution programmed us to all sleep differently (it was a survival mechanism). Understanding the nuances of sleep can help you figure out what’s good and bad about your sleep habits. The result: you’ll rest easier.
I'm gonna assume the 8 hours of sleep is like the 10,000 steps, A number that sounds good but isn't accurate. I've seen step estimates anywhere from 6K to 8K. The people from The Ready State said if you don't sleep well make sure to walk at least 8K steps a day which I get 6 out of 7 days easy. I sleep much better now :)
These articles are amazing. I love how you're mixing healthy advice with a healthy attitude. The stories are great, too. I just subbed for all of it.
That Lieberman book you reference was the best book I read last year. Your articles have a similar style.
I recently self-published a book to Amazon called "The Sleep Solution", where I research and explore some of the more recent sleep wellness trends, providing an unbiased view backed by science and studies to see how effective each of them are. Hopefully it helps others get a better sleep.
Great stuff. If we sleep primarily to restore our brains, shouldn't the optimal amount of sleep be based on the amount needed to restore brain function?
