3. The Mistery Behind Sleeping

Podcast: 75-Min Listen

We all know that sleep is the key factor in both physical and mental recovery, and the essential part of our lives that should never be neglected. However, we often fail in prioritizing our rest, overrelying on our strength and motivation. Here's a reminder most of us need: there's no excuse strong enough to justify lack of sleep. In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, doctor Mathew Walker reflects on the importance of a good night's sleep, as well as its effects on health and overall well-being. Listen to the full podcast here.

4. Keto Your Way to a Dream Body

It's safe to say that every weight loss / leaning out process is a complex one, especially if it requires completely revamping your lifestyle and dietary choices. However, if we ever were to feel lucky for living in the digital era is when we can rely on YouTube for daily recipe ideas, motivation, and info on popular diets. In case you're thinking about "going Keto", or you're already following a Keto diet, you should check out Keto Karma on YouTube and plant the seed for healthy nutritional habits in 2020.
