You've hit on a key topic in sleep science: sleep efficiency. Here are the most relevant clips from the Huberman Lab Podcast:
- "Sleep and Mortality" from episode #31 with Dr. Matthew Walker, where we delve into the relationship between sleep quality and duration.
- "Sleep and Hormones" with Dr. Gina Poe, discussing how hormonal cycles can impact sleep efficiency.
- "Normal Sleep Interruptions" again from episode #31 with Dr. Matthew Walker, explaining why waking up during the night isn't necessarily a problem.
Remember, it's not just about the quantity of sleep, but the quality.
