    #YAPClassic: The Power of Sleep with Dr. Daniel Gartenberg

    Throwing it way way back to episode 12--one of our most popular episodes! 
    Millennials are known to be the "always tired" generation. Everyone under the age of 40 seems to be exhausted. And for good reason— we're working longer hours, taking on second jobs and side hustles, dealing with more competitive environments, glued to screens and phones that zap our mental energy, caring for small children and the list of stressful triggers goes on and on.
    In fact, we millennials wear our lack of sleep as a badge of honor. And since sleep deprivation is linked to Alzheimer's, cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes, we have created a real health crisis for ourselves! To make matters worse, poor sleep impacts us mentally; it reduces our productivity, decreases collaboration, prevents us from making good decisions and even limits our capacity for empathy and humor.
    Needless to say, it's time we millennials unlocked the power of sleep! To do this, we've invited Dr. Daniel Gartenberg on the show, a leading sleep scientist who has dedicated the past 10 years helping people get a better night’s rest through his sleep coaching consultancy and innovative  apps.
    Tune in to learn the function of sleep, how much and how often we should sleep, tips to get

Best Podcast for content on a successful life

I’m a long time listener and subscriber. The content on YAP is real and extremely helpful. Me and other people have a applied things that many of the guests have said. Also things that Hala Taha herself has put out there.

The advice here works for everyone. If you haven’t listened or subscribed... what are you waiting for?

So motivating and educational

After listening to a couple episodes I noticed I tend to listen to each of your episodes twice in a row, if not three times in a row. I like to hear it, then listen again to see if I missed anything, and then again to pause when needed to take notes. Thank you so much for producing the quality content that you do, it helps tremendously.

Make Lemonade... Zack Friedman

Hala’s conversation with Zack Friedman was insightful and refreshing. Zack described the importance of having a vision for the clients you want to serve and why it’s so important to keep their needs first. I thought Hala’s questions brought out a number of life and business insights... Well Done!!
