If you’re anything like the way I used to be, you subscribe to the theory of, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” But, as I get older and I continue to focus on improving all aspects of my life, I can see and feel how critical the proper amount and quality of my sleep is.
Today, I talk with Ted Ryce, the first repeat guest on the Order of Man Podcast, about the importance of sleep, what it means to equip your “sleep cave,” and three critial factors in getting the best sleep possible.
