Unlock the Power of Sleep: 3 BRAIN HACKS to Transform Your Neurological System

Learn why prioritizing sleep is essential!

Sleep is powerful. You’ve probably heard this statement a thousand times. It’s all over the books, media, podcasts, videos, everywhere. But many of us still lack a deep understanding of its power and how to use it for our benefit. In today’s episode, 3 guests dive deeper into understanding the amazing human mind and how sleep is critical to operating at 100% mental capacity. We talk about how to unlock its power — particularly during really hectic seasons of life.


Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist at Stanford University. He also runs the Huberman Lab, which studies how the brain functions, how it changes through experiences, and how to repair the brain after injury or disease. 


David Sinclair is a tenured Professor in the Department of Genetics at the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at Harvard Medical School and serves as President of the Academy for Health and Lifespan Research. He is best known for his work on understanding why we age and how to slow its effects.

Dr. Matthew Walker earned his degree in neuroscience from Nottingham University, UK, and his Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the Medical Research Council in London. Dr. Walker researches the impact of sleep on human health and disease, and he’s written the international bestseller, Why We Sleep, unlocking the power of sleep and dreams.

“Most people are taught how to drive a car. Most people are not taught how to drive their nervous system. Sleep is one major way we can better control this aspect of our lives” @hubermanlab  

And let’s jump into episode 1545 of The School of Greatness!

“I can measure this sort of kaleidoscope of health metrics on Lewis Howes and then see when I keep dialing you back with less and less sleep — at what point do I see at least one of those things demonstrating a breaking point? It’s very rare for us to be able to find any individual who can go below six hours of sleep and not show some kind of impairment.” @sleepdiplomat  

Some Questions I Ask:

  • How does sleeping poorly affect our brain?
  • How much sleep should we get?
  • How does a horrible diet affect your sleep when you’re getting enough sleep versus a good diet and poor sleep?
  • How do we influence our dreams?
  • Can we train our brain to lucid dream more?

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How inadequate sleep impacts brain function and overall mental health.
  • The ideal amount of sleep necessary for optimal health and well-being.
  • The effects of a poor diet on sleep quality, even when you’re getting sufficient sleep, compared to the impact of a good diet on nights of poor sleep.
  • Ways to influence and potentially control the nature of your dreams.
  • Techniques to train your brain for more frequent lucid dreaming experiences.
  • Plus much more…
