Get better sleep today!!
In today’s episode, we are chatting with Dr. Meeta Singh, sleep medicine doctor and sleep performance consultant. Her principle philosophy is to cut through the hype and disinformation about sleep and provide an evidence-based guide to getting your sleep right.
She has served as a consultant for multiple NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA teams. She has worked with college sports teams and large organizations, and CEO’s and other C-suite executives who are aiming for success in the global world. In her clinical practice, she is the service chief of sleep medicine, and section head and medical director at the Henry Ford sleep center in Michigan. She did her training in Psychiatry at the Mayo clinic and a sleep fellowship at the Henry Ford Hospital.
In this episode, we talk about why Dr. Meeta became a sleep medicine doctor, the importance of sleep, and the real amount of sleep you should be getting. We’ll also discuss the effect sleep has on decision making, how to use caffeine the right way, understanding the difference between insomnia and sleep deprivation, and how to get rid of that habit of late-night overthinking. If you’ve been looking to level up your sleep habits, this is a must-listen!
