"Sleep is your superpower."
Indeed it is. I've gotten real good at it. I'm so good, I can do it with my eyes closed.

Walker's top recommendations:
1. Avoid naps throughout the day.
2. Regularity: Go to bed and wake up at the same time, even on weekends.
3. Keep room cool, approximately 65 degrees.
4. Keep your bed as a place only for sleep.

So. If I sleep more I'll be awake less, but live longer.

But. If I sleep less ill be awake more, but die earlier.
Seems like we only have a certain amount of awake time no matter what.

Set aside whatever you may think of the subject matter of this talk and then consider that you've just witnessed one of the most technically perfect examples of public speaking, ever! Every single aspect of this presenter's delivery was flawless. From the proverbial "ice breaker" to the rhythm and cadence of his expertly framed, subject points, to his non-verbal communication, his scanning of the entirety of the room and right down to his moments of pause. This presenter's talk should be used as reference material for those who are looking to train people in the fine art of public speaking.

I finished my Degree in Biotechnology using this method; sleep before studying and sleep after studying. It is truly effective. I never cross-night or use energy drinks. Once I am tired, I sleep, or during study breaks I play a game or watch a series. A brain can be treated as a pet and can be submissive if trained.

Thanks for this informative video Ted.
