    Ep.001 - The Importance of Deep Sleep: The Science of How To Sleep Better [2019]

    Learn The Scientific Way On How To Improve The Quality Of Your Sleep

    https://www.drmichaelvan.com



    Today I want to talk about the importance of deep sleep:



    lets be honest, we've all heard the general recommendation on how to sleep better, that we should all get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep, to function optimally throughout the day...



    As long as you have your 8 hours of optimal sleep you're good to go...



    But the truth is, the QUANTITY of your sleep is not all that matters, in fact what is just as important is the QUALITY of your sleep.



    As a matter of fact, I happen to have an Oura ring, and the beauty of this tool is that I can track my sleep quality, all the different stages of sleep, and this allows me to learn how to sleep better, and improve my sleep routine:



    but sometimes when I wake up in the morning and I'm looking at the levels of deep restorative sleep that I get, it’s not uncommon for my readings from the night before to be ALMOST LAUGHABLE, because they are SO BAD.



    We are talking about a measly 0 to 10 minutes of deep, restorative sleep.



    As you can see most people think that they are good with their 8 hours of sleep, but the truth is, if you're finding out that you're not getting proper, deep restorative sleep, then this is going to take a toll on your body.



    This is going to have a lot of detrimental effects on your lifestyle and on how you're capable to just get by throughout the day.



    And what you are going to find out from this video is that your sleep tracking results aren't laughable at all...



    In fact, they're a symptom of an underlying problem, and they can be downright HORRIBLE!



    Unless you fix these simple things...



    You will find out that NOT getting enough high-quality sleep, especially that deep restorative sleep, has detrimental side effects that have HUGE implications to the health and function of your body.



    Watch my NEW video now and learn how to sleep better, how to sleep smarter, my top secrets to better sleep and all the newest research on how to improve the quality of your sleep...
