Today’s guest is Dr. Matthew Walker. Dr. Walker earned his degree in neuroscience from Nottingham University, UK, and his PhD in neurophysiology from the Medical Research Council in London. He also became a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

But he’s currently the Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. He’s the founder and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science.

Dr. Walker’s research examines the impact of sleep on human health and disease and with that research, he’s written the international Bestseller, Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams as well as hosting his new podcast The Matt Walker Podcast which is all about sleep, the brain and body.

Today’s episode was so powerful that I wanted to split it up into 2 parts. The second half of this episode will come out later this week and you won’t want to miss out on it.

In this episode we discuss why Sleep is the foundational pillar for our overall health, why most people are terrible at prioritizing sleep and how to change that, the effects of poor sleep over time. You NEED to know this, how anxiety and stress affect our sleep, the importance of dreams and how to influence them, and so much more!
