Sleep. It takes up about a third of your life—or at least it should if you want to stay healthy. After having a child, both I and my wife’s sleep patterns were obviously pretty hard hit, and so began a search for some straightforward, actionable advice on how to restore healthy sleep. Dr. Breus is an almost limitless source of exactly that, so if you’re having trouble, have a listen. We dig into sleep, maintaining energy levels, different body types, developing habits and routines that work with our bodies instead of against them, and how it all works together.

Michael was recently named the Top Sleep Specialist in California by Reader’s Digest, and one of the 10 most influential people in sleep science.
