Question: What’s More Dangerous Than Eating Glass?
Answer: Sleep deprivation.
I used to be a terrible sleeper. Tossing, turning, fretting. I spent many nights lying with my eyes open, completely stressed about the sleep I was missing, but not knowing how to change my pattern. I routinely muddled through life on 6-7 hours of sleep per night.
But then two things happened: I cleaned up my diet, and I committed to getting at least 8 hours per night. It’s been about a year and a half since I started my sleep experiment, and the nights that I sleep less than 8 hours are very, very rare. I have no need for caffeine, my energy is pretty stable throughout the day, and my sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Lovely!
