The Urban Monk Podcast

We've heard it before and some of us struggle and understand deeply the importance of sleep. There's a new book with a lot of new research by someone who's always bringing us the latest news and points of views, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington! This week she joins Pedram Shojai on The Urban Monk to talk about her experiences running The Huffington Post, writing books, and even acting while trying to get enough sleep! She mentions that there is a sleep crisis. Are we really in crisis? How many people have issues with sleep? Are people sleeping less on average now than in previous time periods? Arianna dives into "pre-industrial sleep" and how sleep habits were different long ago. But living in the current world, how can we master sleep? What affect did mastering sleep have on people like Andre Iguodala, basketball player for the Golden State Warriors?
