FAN FACT: Did you know that, drowsy driving is responsible for 1,550 fatalities and 40,000 nonfatal injuries annually in the United States (source)
FAN FACT 2: Also, did you know that 100.000 deaths occur each year in US hospitals due to medical errors and sleep deprivation has been shown to make a significant contribution (source).
What can you do about this?
Well, there are two options actually. Continue reading to find out.
Learn about good sleep
When I mean learn about good sleep, I am not talking about asking your friends or family members about it, who most probably think they know about it.
Now, you can go
to Google, Bing or your favorite search engine and search about how to improve
your sleeping, get a ton of results from blogs and video directories, spend
another many hours to study them, implement them for a couple of days
and then forget the whole subject or…
Find an accredited institute who offers sleep science certifications and enroll to their program. It might not be free (it’s neither expensive though) but you will save huge amounts of time of finding the content yourself and most importantly structure your learning pattern.
Fan Fact: Research has shown that people, who buy something, tend to value it more – thus actually using the product – than getting it for free.
Hire someone who knows about good sleep
Now, this is the easiest solution. You basically hire someone who is a certified sleep science coach and he takes you by the hand and guides you into the secrets of good, quality, and healing sleep.
Now, why I am suggesting hiring someone who is a certified sleep coach? Because you at least receive information from someone who paid and studied his stuff. Also, a sleep coach’s job is to track your progress and help you reach your goals.
So, if you want to eliminate the possibility of giving up and NOT helping yourself, then this is the best option for you.
You might find it a bit extreme to hire a sleep coach, but trust me you will thank me later.
