Favorite Podcast of the Week: Found My Fitness w/ Dr. Matthew Walker

This is definitely a deep dive into some pretty heavy medical terms around the importance of improving sleep. My biggest take-aways were:

sleep helps the brain encode new information if you have proper sleep before learning, helps solidify the information while sleeping, and improves long-term memory after sleep (makes the case for not pulling those all-nighters in college, bummer)

just several days of poor sleep (less than 7 hours!) changes cells in the pancreas and affects blood glucose levels – which in plain English means that you start to show signs of pre-diabetes!

People who are sleep deprived avoid social interaction.

His book is now at the top of my reading list and stay tuned for a class I’ll be teaching about how to improve your sleep.
