As a Lifestyle Medicine Physician - who has also personally suffered with sleep disturbance from long-term hospitalisation and injury ( hospitals are the worst for health - that is a presentation in itself !). The importance of good sleep practices cannot be overemphasized - it is linked with every aspect of health, well-being and balance - thank you.😊

1. regularity - go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time 2. darkness - in the last hour before bed dim down the lights around the house 3. temperature - 65-68°F 4. walk it out - don't lie in bed too long if you can't sleep 5. limit your caffeine 6. limit your alcohol

Yeah people are awake because of electricity. Otherwise most everyone’s pattern would be sleep at dusk and rise at dawn like it should be. People need to be literally sleeping by 10pm to 2 am or they don’t heal properly. Those are the reparative hours the human body requires. Also you have an inability to lose weight when you don’t sleep at healthful hours.

The was one of the most beneficial conversations/ teachings I have ever heard on the subject of sleep. I studied sleep at Brock University and have been working in sleep medicine for 25 years I am currently working at the University of Miami Sleep Center as a sleep tech and up until I listened to this discussion, I thought that I am sure I have heard it all. I was humbled to say the least. An absolutely fascinating discussion on sleep and adenosine, caffeine and how the body metabolizes caffeine and how caffein latches onto adenosine etc etc. Great stuff!
130rne 2 meses atrás
Pro tip - don't drink coffee until you've been up for about an hour and a half. It screws with the adenosine if drunk before you're fully awake. Get up, walk (movement), get sunlight. Wait an hour and a half. (An hour is still fine, just not quite as effective. You want to be fully awake) If you do this it should improve the afternoon crashes and post lunch naps. When I wait the full hour and a half, I don't get the coffee crash in the afternoon and also when I eat lunch, the food doesn't make me as drowsy. From Dr Andrew Huberman here on BRvid, another great resource.

I started reading Matt’s book “Why We Sleep” a couple of years ago and it terrified me so much that I couldn’t read any more. But I think he has realised that he was frightening people, and in this interview he has redeemed himself. At 1 hour 38minutes he gives his tips for better sleep. I think I now know why I don’t sleep well, and what to do about it, in particular, what he says about dark, and about caffeine and alcohol. What a lovely person he is!

Kate Brennan. I have been writing to my State Senator for the past four years about this. I have done some research and conversations at the public library near my job. Most parents agree that it's important to teach their children to sleep enough hours per night and have a nap sometime in the afternoon. Like a power nap per se. Perhaps, if the men and women in government made it a *must* or a *law* that children and teenagers who attend classes need to have at least thirty or forty minutes naps. It will help them, as Matthew Walter says, it will help the people remember most facts. But the discipline of sleep, exercise, etc should always start at home. I have seen the impact of power naps on my oldest niece; her grades went from Ds to Bs. I guess depends on each person's physiology. But it is a start.

@Kay Hathaway Thank you. I have three nieces, two of them are teenagers, 14, and 12, and the youngest is 9. Mihaela, who is 12, I gave her and Millie 9, a nap time between homework assignments. They are always acting happy, goofy. The oldest, Isa, is always grumpy. Lol! So, in other words, I agree with you. Sometimes, lack of sleep or naps makes teens uneasy and lash out. She won't listen to me much! 😅 😅

A very humble guy and I'll take a lot from this conversation, especially as I've struggled to sleep my whole life. This has just answered a lot of questions I've had. I really hope sleep does get taken more seriously. Loved this! x

As a mother to a 2 year old and a baby on the way, I can’t describe how awful it’s been not being able to sleep the amount I need to function. And it was really interesting to hear about the correlation between suicide and sleep, because when I was at my worst sleep deprivation between newborn and 6 months of life with my first, she would wake every 45 mins through the night, every night, I fantasised about suicide daily because I felt that sick that I used to think maybe if I was dead I’d be allowed to sleep and the torture would stop. I had terrible PPD and PPA, which just vanished within days as soon as I started getting some adequate sleep again. It’s truly horrific what parents go through and I think as a society here in the west (speaking as someone in the UK) a lot of us have no village anymore, and it’s hugely detrimental to our health as new parents, and society isn’t set up to help each other anymore with this as we all live so far from our families and extended families. I see a huge difference with cousins who are still living in Cyprus and have extended family around, because everyone helps with the babies and mum and dad get some rest and are much better functioning humans because of it.

Another topic that needs to be explored in huge detail. It literally derails you. The most important figure in this new humans life. For years I wanted to get into Antenatal Health for this reason and for many more. The whole spectrum of issues related to caring for new humans needs more exploring more understanding. At the core women need more support. Your right our modern society is not designed to support women through some of the most stressful years of life. It’s no wonder people are having less, the emotional toll of an under-supported family unit results in generations of traumatised individuals, sick individuals. So we know those first 7 years are vital. Let’s design a government intervention family support system that works with mothers and their kids in those early years. Let’s set it up that Women are liaising with each other. Encouraging more community more support. Let’s bring back the village.

You nave my heartfelt empathy. I went through a similar experience with my only child, as a single mother, living alone and entirely on my own. It was a painful awakening to just how out of balance modern societies are. I pray you are creating a plan to have more solutions in place for the arrival of your next baby. You and your family need, and deserve, a better experience for this next post-birth and infancy phase. Blessings to you❣🙏💞

@Timeisslippy There definitely needs to be more support for all, and I'm especially concerned by the lack of community support for (especially undiagnosed) disabled children and (undiagnosed) disabled people who want to be parents. My childhood was profoundly awful for having a lack of correct support (I'm autistic, ADHD and mildly dyslexic but being a woman who is extra sensitive and technically intelligent [none of the conditions affect intelligence contrary to public perception] my disabilities were not fully obvious to people or diagnosed correctly at the time) at the moment raising neurodiverse children is incredibly demanding because the correct support doesn't exist (having been previously built on the idea you can 'fix' a neurotype by demanding a disabled person with different needs ignores their needs and puts additional efforts into seeming less disabled). My disabilities stop me from ever wanting children (especially the whole anything touching my skin hurts/I have a blood phobia too, so I don't feel like splitting body parts open to allow out other humans thanks, part) but there are many neurodiverse people who would make incredible parents who want kids or don't realise they are disabled until they have kids. It's a form of eugenics to deem disabled people as unworthy parents and disabled children as unworthy of existing. That's where a community is extra necessary for providing the necessary support and helping all members of society thrive.

Really interesting conversation. Nighttime noise also contributes to sleep deprivation. It can come from inside your household, from a neighbor, from street noise (loud cars, motorcycles), airport flight patterns, and so on. Noise -- especially low-frequency noise -- makes it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep. This might be one reason why meditation channels and ASMR got so popular, too.

Dr. Walker, You could not have done any better during this long educational talk. You are naturally brilliant, and have a very special ability to explain so many difficult conditions so clearly, always dignified, and gentle. You are very kind and always careful of smudging a single word to be construed as bossy or unkind. You are unable to be unkind, it is not a part of who you are. You have taught me a great deal through this speaking engagement; I look forward to hearing every one of your talks. You are an amazingly intelligent and a warm and caring person; please do not apologize ever again for your style, content or intent. Please take a much deserved bow; you have earned it. By far, you are the very best speaker on this and many other subjects, as you have mastered the art of communication and love what you do. I can't wait to read your books and hear all of your interesting conversations. Thank you!

Aim for 6 or 7.5 hours. Rem cycles every 1 and half hours. Study shows aiming for 8 hours your guaranteed to wake up around the 6 hour mark and it throws your sleep off. I like 6 hours as I want to get the most out my life if I could sleep less I would but 6 hours feels perfect I wouldn't rely on sleeping tablets it's a quick fix and will do more damage down the line. I listen to meditation sleep music find what sounds you feel through tour body trust me works wonders I've 38 been listening to it ever since I lost my mother and father 4 years ago. Without that I would spiral and put me down a horrible ugly path but I'm great I feel great and I get alot out of life now. Ps I didn't have any issues prior to their deaths

Matt Walker is a man who has found his purpose in life and I think it's incredibly selfless how he wants to share the thing that he cares about so much and is dedicating his life to the concept of sleep. We should all find the thing that we are most driven by and do the best we can at it, and we should all try and sleep better since sleep is an agent of productivity.
Debbie Parnell
Debbie Parnell 2 meses atrás
I agree with the sentiment but it's not 'selfless' to follow your heart. When you follow your passions like that it's a joy to learn and share your knowledge with others it's not losing sight of yourself or being self scarfing - it's filling yourself up enough to generously give. We should never seek to get away from ourselves to help others - we should always seek to be in touch with ourselves to help others. Being self centred has both negative and positive qualities and it's only in getting in touch with what lights us up that we can be a torch to others. (Also we should sleep for our sanity and well being productivity is a nice byproduct which shouldn't be the main goal)

What I recently discovered but never knew is keep my eyes closed, no matter how not sleepy I am. Within 40 minutes, I'm asleep. Just don't open your eyes. I had no idea something so simple could work. Also let your mind wander, what shapes u see, etc. The more nonsensical the better. I've struggled my whole life. These are the only things that have worked.

Thank you for such a great contribution about an extremly important topic that we are really not conscious enough about. I live in Spain, a country where "siesta" is supposed to have been invented. But I have just realised exactly how sleep-unfriendly this beautiful country is: You may get up a little bit later, but not too much later either when comparing it to the rest of Europe. However, then everything is "delayed": lunch-time (around 3 pm), dinner-time (9 to 10 pm), the evening movie starts shortly after 10, and my kids have even had basketball training from 9.30 to 11 at night in some years! So if you are lucky, you can try and hit the hay around midnight - that is if your neighbours and party-goers in nearby pubs and streetcafés let you. I wonder if there are studies about Alzheimer-incidence as per countries and if so, if the data for Spain is different from that in other countries.

I feel quite tired sometimes during the day and a 20 minute nap wakes me up and I feel fresh, and ready to go. I think it works very well for me. No nap and the tired feeling can last for hours.

GREAT interview and couldn't agree more. Sleep is so important. I've had YEARS of depressions and insomnia that went along with it. My posych meds basically just help me sleep better (IMHO) and it helped me so much. Ever since I am sleeping better I am less depressed (hardly ever even).

I must say I've never learnt so much about sleep as within these 2 hours. Thank you so much for this video! Now I know why and what to do if I cannot fall asleep. I wonder, will there be a part 2? There was nothing about mothers, when they have a baby and thus, lack sleep. I also would like to know how detrimental to human health is mother's lack of sleep and having broken sleep for months, even years... Also, is there a way to learn to nap? I could never sleep during the day, even when I was a toddler. I envy everyone who can... I'd like to know if it's possible to learn that.

As a child I had a fear of sleeping and then developed OCD which made me stay up all night performing compulsions, when I was able to sleep my OCD and anxiety improved dramatically and now I no longer suffer from it however often when I am sleep deprived I start to to experience intrusive thoughts and anxiety. What he said about sleep and mental health being very closely linked is so true

As a child, i had this particular kind of involuntary visualization as I was falling asleep that was utterly terrifying, and made me afraid to go to sleep. I learned as an adult that this was the result of the neural network growing in some regions, being pared away in others, and some small percentage of the population suffers these terrors upon drowning off in childhood. None of my 4 siblings had them . My husband was the first person I ever met who also had suffered them. To this day we are the only two people I personally know who had them. I would not wish it on anyone, I already had a pretty traumatic childhood going on! I cannot express how grateful I was to finally outgrow it. Interestingly, I developed a coping mechanism back then to help me, which Dr Walker describes: the visualization of something in GREAT detail. I would turn on my sisters click radio to the classical station and visualize the music as garments: what color, what fabric, what sleeves, what skirt, where ribbons or buttons, etc. Music has always evoked images for me, so even as a 7-10 year old while this was happening, I could use the image the music brought to mind to distract my brain from the fear of the terrors. Interesting to hear him talk about this method here.

Mathew is such a great human. I think the replies cover pretty well what a great interview this was. Anyone not sold on the alcohol part that has a smart watch, check the difference in your sleeping heart rate with as little as 2 drinks. The contrast with unaffected sleep is frightening.

I like that open-ended queation that allowed Dr to share with us something of his choosing that you may have missed. And I like that question from the previous guest about self contradiction. A very well executed interview. It was informative, both of you were quite eloquent- 2 things that made my first experience here enjoyable. Great job, keep it up. By the way, I am sold on the message of the importance of sleep. 😊

Intermittent fasting may well help, my partner finds it the only way to manage his weight, he cannot diet, however he can do one meal a day (he eats pretty much what he wants within a 2hr window once a day). You will find pretty quickly that you adapt to fasting and can go for much of the day without eating. Dr Berg and Dr Jason Fung on BRvid have a ton of info on this.

Aha. So glad to hear that my husband and I made the sensible decision. After sleep deprived nights because we were both restless sleepers we decided on a "sleep divorce" which absolutely prevented a real one. Separate bedrooms saw the return of harmony and a way improved marriage all round. At first we thought we were a bit odd until we were surprised to discover bit by bit that way more of our friends and acquaintances had come to the same solution. Another brilliant interview.

Probably one of the best interviews here so far, for me at least! Thank you!!! Some of my experiences about caffeine/anxiety: I started treating coffee like chocolate, like something special, a treat (I usually drink turkish coffee with fair trade fresh grounded beans, without sugar and cream, cuz I looove the flavour). So I do not drink it everyday, and when I do, I really enjoy it as a treat. And I have seen, this has hugely improved my restlessness. But yeah, I could definitely work on the timing of drinking it to help improve my sleep. About decaf coffee: I heard that harmful chemicals are being used to take away the caffeine in coffee, so that would be something for further research. Furthermore, different kinds of coffee have different amounts of caffeine. Espresso for example, has not much as French Press coffee, etc.

Great podcast thanku! I was utterly SOAR captured by the suggestion of a cold temp• in the bedroom as time & time again if I go to bed wearing winter PJ's I start tossing & turning, yet if I sleep in light gear, I snuggle under my bed linen and let my body heat work to the right temperature. I also find good ventilation in the bedroom is key to drifting to sleep. Many thanks 😊

Thank you gentlemen for a wonderful documentary. Thank you Matt for sharing your knowledge. It was a joy to listen to someone that could pronounce their words clearly - a rare thing in today’s world. I feel it is important for me to mention how much mankind owes to the animal world - the knowledge obtained by man comes from horrific experiments carried out on animals - not that that should be used as an excuse to carry out such cruelty. I often feel God placed the wrong creatures in charge. Again thank you Matt for your doco.

This interview resonated so much for me, and what a brilliant episode. My father died of Alzheimer's only a few years after he retired from air traffic control, and I don't think it's coincidental that his job meant literally decades of shift work, including working nights. He endured disrupted sleep cycles almost his entire life (grew up during the London Blitz, was sent off to war, etc.), and while he almost took pride in the total lack of sleep he could survive on, I do believe this negatively affected his brain function. Thanks for the invaluable insight. I need to do better, particularly in the sleep "procrastination" issue of going to bed, yet delaying falling asleep c/o of my iPad. Cheers.
100% on point about stress and sleep. well for me he was 100% on point. i have days when i feel super down/depressed. a simple good night sleep seems to reset me. and literally the next day i dont feel any left over stress from what i was stressing about yesterday. its really an amazing yet weird feeling. this needs to be examined more for those that claim to be depressed daily.

I noted Dr. Matthew Walker touched on the subject of the implications of oversleeping but didn't go into detail. As someone with a chronic blood disorder causing anemoa, I'm often exhausted and only feel rested after 9 hours. 8 hours and I experience muscle aches, I'm less alert, sore eyes etc. Would have loved to hear if oversleeping is just as dangerous for those with chronic illness! But great episode ❤

Great podcast between Barry keoghan and Will Smith lite 😅😅 Jokes apart it's an amazing podcast and after reading Prof Walker's book on Sleep i have greatly improved my sleeping in night time. I constantly still improve at it. Sleep is very underrated and is very important. I completed this podcast in around 4 batch of listening.
