[01:00] It's Important To Prioritize Your Sleep So You Can Win The Day

  • During sleep, your body and your mind will repair.
  • Also, during sleep, your body will store hormones and burn fat.
  • Sleep will let you make better decisions for the next day. When you're sleep-deprived, your ability to make good decisions goes out the window.
  • REM sleep is recharging your brain, and it allows us to make good decisions. When the prefrontal cortex is energized and refreshed, we can make great choices throughout the day.

[05:10] Mental Health: What Role Does Sleep Play?

  • If you have ever been chronically sleep-deprived, you know how mentally terrible you feel.
  • When we are not taking care of our mental health, it leads us back to making poor decisions.
  • A lack of sleep can make us irritable, angry, frustrated, and even lead to road rage.
  • Also, with a lack of sleep, your reaction time gets decreased.

[11:20] What Is REM Sleep and How Much Do I Need?

  • There are so many factors that go into how much REM sleep you need.
  • 20% – 25% of your sleep should be deep, and the same goes for REM.
  • Sleep is dynamic.
  • You need to figure out how much REM sleep is optimal for you.
  • If you wake up and you feel refreshed, mentally and physically, that's a good sign that you're getting enough REM sleep.

[15:00] Why Do We Sleep, Anyway? It’s Great For Your Physical Body!

  • Sleep helps with physical restoration. Growth hormones are released throughout the night.
  • Sleep deprivation will actually impact the man’s testicle size.
  • Devin recommends reading Why We Sleep: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y649387/benazadi-20
  • Deep sleep happens during the first quarter of the night. During deep sleep, your body is cleaning the cells.
  • When you're not getting enough sleep, that throws off your insulin which leads to food cravings and food addiction.

[18:30] You’re Not Getting Quality Sleep. That’s A Problem For Your Cortisol.

  • Cortisol naturally should be highest in the morning.
  • When you’re not getting enough sleep, your cortisol levels will stay high.
  • If you’re not getting quality sleep, hormones are dysregulated. Then, your blood sugar will go all over the place. So, you crave sugar!
  • When glucose goes up, ketones go down.

[21:20] Caffeine’s Surprising Connection To Sleep Problems

  • Caffeine blocks the adenosine receptors.
  • The more caffeine you drink, the less you are letting your body rest.
  • Caffeine gets in the way of getting quality sleep. When you’re not getting quality sleep, you’re in sleep debt.
  • Plus, caffeine will dysregulate your circadian rhythm.
  • People metabolize caffeine at different rates in different ways.

[27:45] Sleep Tips: Create A Bedtime Buffer Between Day and Night

  • Having a buffer of time between your day and your night is very important.
  • The most important transition of the day is the transition from your actual day to the night.
  • When you have a buffer, then you won’t bring your stress to bed.
  • Taking a walk is a great buffer.
  • You can also do a hobby as a buffer like playing music, learning something, or reading.

[34:00] Why Eating Before Bedtime Is Actually A Bad Idea

  • Your body doesn’t want food right before bed.
  • You shouldn’t eat three to four hours before bedtime. However, it also depends on how fast you metabolize.
  • Eating late will absolutely affect your sleep.
  • Make sure to go to sleep in a fasted state.
  • It’s challenging for busy people. However, it’s something that you can work on every day.

[36:00] How To Optimize REM Sleep and Deep Sleep

  • Incline sleeping can improve deep sleep.
  • Sleeping on a 5 to 7-degree incline has been found to increase glymphatic drainage.
  • It's not so much what you do. It's what you don't do. For instance, don’t eat!
  • Also, don’t take vitamin D before bed.
  • Sleeping in a cold room is great for deep sleep.
