    This is the most amazing class I have ever listened to! I had absolutely no idea just how important quality sleep was. I knew some basics, not to try and catch up on sleep, no alcohol before bed, but he breaks down EVERYTHING about those things and so much more! It will totally change how you think about sleep, and will inspire you to strive for a great nights sleep, every single night!
