  • I used to have a crazy goal.

  • I was going to set a goal to live my life sleeping under 6 hours a day,

  • because I was busy.

  • I have things to do, people to see, places to visit.

  • Why waste so much of being alive on planet Earth asleep?

  • Today I know that I was wrong.

  • Sleep is a goal in itself.

  • Sleep is essential to how we show up and function in the world.

  • My goal to sleep under 6 hours, I've tossed it out the window.

  • Now I aim, every day, to sleep between 7 and 8 hours,

  • because I've seen what sleep gives me.

  • Sleep is a form of recovery.

  • It is so essential to our health, but so many of us misunderstand it

  • and do it wrong.

  • You may have heard of the 10,000 hours study by K Anders Ericsson.

  • He studied masters and found that to achieve mastery in any topic,

  • you got to put in roughly 10,000 hours of practice.

  • But a lot of people missed a certain aspect of that study where Ericsson

  • looked at sleep.

  • He found that the great masters of the world were sleeping for almost

  • eight and a half hours a day.

  • The average American?

  • Six hours and 50 minutes.

  • Masters were sleeping more.

  • In fact, if you look at the world today, many of the most optimized human beings

  • in the world are spending more time dedicated to sleep, dedicated to rest,

  • dedicated to recovery, because we know our bodies need it.

  • Tom Rath, in the book Eat Move Sleep, said that if you deprive yourself of

  • just 90 minutes of sleep, it's like operating at work the next day

  • as if one-third of your brain capacity has been suppressed.

  • That's like starting your day downing a pint of beer.

  • Would you do that?

  • Well, why then do we think that sacrificing our sleep

  • is something acceptable?

  • So here's what happens.

  • We, when we are faced with overwork, sacrifice sleep.

  • We come back from work later, we stay up late, sacrificing our sleep,

  • hoping to make up for it the next day.

  • It never works.

  • A drop in cognitive ability, the change in our moods and emotions

  • make the next day harder, thus causing us to stay up late again

  • to pile in more work.

  • It's a vicious cycle.

  • And it hurts you.

  • It ages you.

  • Give your body the rest you need.

  • Today, my goal is to sleep for 7 to 8 hours a day.

  • I track my sleep, I log my sleep.

  • In the Mindvalley office, we even have sleeping pods,

  • so that if our people feel that they need an afternoon nap, they can take it freely,

  • without being judged.

  • I take sleep supplements to allow me to go deeper into sleep.

  • I cut off caffeine, as much as I love coffee, after a certain hour every day,

  • so it doesn't interfere with my sleep.

  • And my sleep process is as disciplined as my meditation process

  • or my exercise process.

  • Yet, many people in the world still don't get enough sleep.

  • And this is why one of the projects that we're looking at Mindvalley is to work

  • with world class sleep doctors to help people all around the world

  • get better sleep.

  • Too many Americans are hooked on sleeping pills.

  • Too many people drink so they can sleep at night, not realizing that alcohol actually

  • creates poorer quality sleep.

  • Too many people stay up late or wake up too early in the morning,

  • thinking this is the hallmark of a productive life.

  • The result is that our bodies don't get the nourishment and the sleep

  • that is necessary for us to be our best selves.

  • So if you find these ideas interesting, sign up for my new masterclass

  • on the power of sleep with Dr. Michael Breus,

  • the biggest name in sleep in America today.

  • I'll see you there.

I used to have a crazy goal.
