I fell asleep at the wheel.

One sunny afternoon I was driving home after a 30-hour shift in the ICU. I was completely exhausted and decided to take the street route rather than the highway. The monotony of the highway has made me fall asleep at the wheel more times than I care to admit. Even though it would take me longer to get home, I felt this was the safer option.

I was wrong. 

About 20 minutes into my drive home, I was sitting at a stop light. I was in the home stretch and started to dream about my comfy bed. The next second, I was abruptly jolted awake because I ran into the back of the car in front of me. I was horrified. I was embarrassed. I jumped out of my car and started apologizing profusely to the lady's car I bumped into at 5 mph. There was no damage to either of our cars and she was gracious enough to let us part ways without filing a report.

I know I'm not alone. A recent poll by The National Sleep Foundation found that 37 percent of people confessed that they had fallen asleep behind the wheel, and 60 percent admitted they had driven while sleepy.

Fast forward 7 years.

These days I sleep like world-class athlete. That accident taught me priceless lessons on how to hack my sleep despite my schedule. Whether it's a red-eye flight to California or I'm just too wired to fall asleep, I've learned tricks to help me consistently get premium sleep every night. I want to share everything I learned with you.

WHY NOT JUST WRITE A BOOK?

First, most of us don't have time to read books even if we know it will help us. There are many excellent books that exist about sleep. When I see patients and ask if they have read any of them, the answer is usually no. So I created a course that gives you a little bit of content every day as a reminder of your goal for better sleep. Consistency creates change and new habits which is critical for sleep health.

Second, most health books are considered "out-of-date" by the time they reach the bookshelf. While there are tried and true insights to be gained, I wanted people to have access to the most up-to-date information possible. No matter when you join this course, know that I will be constantly tweaking it when new research studies and articles come out.

You will have lifetime access to The Unconscious Workout plus regular updates. There is also no restriction to how many times you can repeat the course.

Rest is the new hustle.
