I have also stitched those two piece together on YouTube – which you can watch HERE – I will also share that link to Facebook.

Please let me know any questions – and see you next week!

Project B3 – Overview

I’m excited to get started on November 1 with our first class.

This initial class will be an Overview of what to expect for the coming weeks.

In this Overview, we’ll walk through the type of nutrition plan that we’ll follow; the supplements that we’ll use; the exercise recommendations; and the overall role of gut health and mental wellness in helping us reduce stress and lose weight in a completely new way.

You can join the webinar in two ways – via Zoom or via Facebook Live.

I’ll broadcast the webinar using the Zoom platform (see connection instructions below) – and this will be streamed directly to Facebook Live within the Project B3 Group.

The Zoom video and the FB Live video will be recorded and archived so you can watch again and share the videos with friends – links to each recording will be provided at ShawnTalbott.com and Project B3 Group

Wonder Drug = Sleep!

I have to share this terrific article by Tim Herrera writing for the NY Times Smarter Living section.

Check out the original article HERE

The New York Times

Smarter Living Editor

Imagine this: Someone walks up to you and pitches you on a brand new, magical pill.
This pill can measurably improve your memory, overall cognitive performance, ability to learn new information, receptivity to facial cues, mood, ability to handle problems, metabolism, risk for heart disease and immune system.
Would you buy it?
Yeah, yeah, you saw this coming: That pill exists, but not in pill form. You can have all of those benefits for free, and all it takes is going to bed a little bit earlier. That’s it.
And yet! The Centers for Disease Control have called sleep deprivation a public health crisis, saying that one-third of adults don’t get enough sleep. Some 80 percent of people report sleep problems at least once per week, and according to a 2016 study, sleep deprivation “causes more than $400 billion in economic losses annually in the United States and results in 1.23 million lost days of work each year.”
If that’s not enough, here is a non-comprehensive list of the ways your sleep deprivation is personally harming you:
That is insane! All of this from just not getting enough sleep!
So what are we to do? We’ve got you covered with The Times’s guide to getting a better night’s sleep.
First, learn how much sleep you need. Generally, if you’re waking up tired, you’re not getting enough.
However, the gold standard of eight hours per night might not be right for you. A study from 2015 brought into question whether we need that magical number, so following your body is the best way to figure out the right rhythm. The only real guideline is to get as much sleep as you need to feel refreshed and energized the next day, and then do that every single night. Keeping a sleep diary — like this one — can help you figure this out.
Next, figure out your body’s natural rhythm. Maybe after years of trying, you need to acknowledge that you’re just not a morning person. And that’s perfectly fine! Take this quiz to find out what kind of sleeper you are, and don’t fight your body’s natural sleep tendencies.
Last, keep a consistent sleep schedule. This can be the most important part of your overall sleep hygiene. We’re all equipped with a circadian clock, which is that internal 24-hour timer that naturally tells us when to sleep, and the best way to getting rest and feeling rested is to keep this consistent. Fall asleep and wake up at the same time every day (including weekends), and try to build as much regularity into your schedule as possible, including meal times, exercise routines, screen time (and when to shut off the screens) and morning sunlight time. And don’t forget to keep your bedroom cool.
What helps you get the right amount of Z’s and stay well-rested? Tweet me your tips at @timherrera.
Have a great week!
