Why It Matters What You Wear to Sleep When Training. When integrating your training schedule into your everyday calendar of responsibilities, it isn’t very often people block out time to get a full, undisturbed night of sleep. Whether you realize it or not, sleep is just as important to your training as the time you spend running or working out — and you have more control than you think.

Sleep Training Science: “Doesn’t matter if you come back and check on the baby every 30 seconds or whether you come back every five minutes,” she says. the effect will likely wear off, you. Experts say that regardless of which sleep-training method you use, having a stable bedtime—between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. for infants, Vance suggests—and a steady routine are key. Whether it’s bath, book, lullaby, bed or a different sequence, doing the same thing every evening is part of the bedrock of good sleep hygiene. When that young person decides to become involved in serious athletic training, then the need for extra sleep will soon rise.

It has to. It has to. The more physical activity you do, the more the muscles and nervous system will break down in the natural course of experiencing stress on the body. Oura Ring: the most accurate sleep and activity tracker is all about you: it measures the physiological signals of your body, understands your lifestyle, and guides you to make your own optimal daily choices.

The ring features scientifically validated sleep tracking and personalized guidance. The key here is routine. It doesn’t matter what you do, it just has to work for you.I highly recommend, however, avoiding screen time an hour before bed. Studies have shown that the blue light from the screen, and the rapid scrolling, interact with a part of you brain that gets more active, which will keep you up at night.

When you approach sleep this way, you won’t be fazed. 12 baby-sleep tips for exhausted new parents Before you even think about “training” your baby to fall asleep on their own, make sure you’re following a regular schedule and putting them to bed at a consistent time each night (hint: early is usually better, typically around 7 or 8 p.m.). Starting at about two months old, it’s a good idea. Some babies sleep seven hours or longer at an early age, while others won’t until much later.

If you’re not sure whether your baby is ready for sleep training, ask his doctor. How to prepare for sleep training. Set the stage for successful sleep training with these suggestions: Introduce a bedtime routine.

When you wear tight clothing all the time — and while you sleep — your body may prevent products from flowing through your lymph nodes, potentially causing problems for your immune system. Opt for loose-fitting clothes that allow for easy movement and comfort if you decide to wear clothes to bed.

  • I think it’s just as simple as clothes can tell us a lot about the person and especially interests. I think to some degree u can tell what job a person either wants to do or actually is, so I would say it’s fair to say that a teacher or lawyer generally wears more structured put together pieces than say a mechanic even in casual settings. Generally but not always people who care about the environment I find often wear earthly coloured pieces and often wear jewellery inspired from other cultures. Even romantic and sexual interests, so people that tend to dress more feminine are (usually) trying to attract men and people that dress more masculine are (usually) trying to attract women.

    Sorry for long paragraph �� but I think it’s amazing that u can often tell so much about a person just by looking at how they’re dressed and how they present themselves!

  • And also I don’t know why but my feet are always ice cold even when I put socks on and I’ll be under the blanket my feet will stay cold and it’s absolutely annoying but I’m used to it cause it happens every night

  • I’ve always slept with no socks on since I was a baby so now when I try to put socks on and sleep, I might fall of to sleep but I will wake up In the middle of the night and take it off��it’s kinda annoying though

  • I am always willing to pay a bit more for things that last and I do wear the hell out of them. I just love the look of broken-in quality clothes

  • Always wear sleep booties thick ones in winter, and thin ones in summer but they don’t help me sleep any better, I still wake up a lot during the night.

  • Wear socks with neodymium magnets at the bottom of ur foot and it’ll pull toxicities out and help ur immune system..
    I have 5 magnets I use and they’re amazing i havent had hardly any lupus flairups since doing this

  • Janway to put it out there! The erotic connection! Not sexual, energetic! When you show you care, care for others, deliver yourself in service of others, it is felt. I know of what you speak. Bravo.

  • Never thought of clothes as an effective mean of communication. Thanks for the idea!!
    I always wondered why ppl misunderstood my personality

  • I was taught by my grandmother to take care of what you have and make a quilt out of it when it’s worn out and give it to someone in need

  • This is entirely true. Clothing communicates the message of your personality, social class, and style. We, Grand Royalty, are a high fashion e-commerce brand that communicates class, confidence, success and happiness. Check out our article that elaborates the topic discussed above.

  • I care about the planet among others things. I do recycle I don’t buy new clothes if they don’t fit me anymore I loose weight. I love my clothes, Animals my planet.

  • I agree with this video in so many ways! I like wearing clothing that and outfits that are androgynous because I don’t feel like my true self wearing ordinary boys clothes, I like wearing clothes or shades that aren’t usually seen on boys, I like dark brown trousers or navy corduroy paired with a black knitted turtleneck, and some docs. But unfortunately some people are very judgemental and sometimes feel “pressed” when other people dress the way they want to.

  • those basic girls all wearing t-shirts with LEVI prnted on it crack me up each time. wonder what it says about their personalities LOL

  • Yea my feet take them off when I’m asleep so my body says no to socks. Anyone else find socks at the bottom of their bed when it’s time to wash your sheets? Lol.

  • 3:13 Nope, I’ve always hated clothes shopping. Nothing gets my attention. I have zero fashion sense. I couldn’t care less about clothes. I couldn’t connect with this video at all. Nothing makes sense.

  • How funny this is. Even when I was younger I could care less about clothes. I would and still do, where whatever suits me. I never cared in the least about being ‘dressed properly’, whatever that ever means. Funny.

  • I am a great advocate for reuse, recycle and renew. I run a small market stall where I sell good, fashionable, up to date secondhand clothes. I hate the way people throw away perfectly good usable items so every week I buy used clothes from people and resell them. I make money, people are happy that they have saved money by purchasing used items at a fraction of the cost of new garments.So we are all winners. More importantly we are saving many things from going to landfill. ☺☺☺

  • You mentioned diabetes a lot. Not defining between type 2 and type 1. If you would like to understand more about the emotions of diabetes I wrote a book about it http://www.pngwd.com

  • Sometimes a bit of consumerism isn’t bad. Buy what you want, envelope yourself as the portrait you want to show, your authentic you.

  • 58 look 38 feel 28, healthier than most and NEVER slept or sleep longer than 4 to 5 hours or done all this prep he’s talking about, Tesla slept 2 at at time. Like EVERYTHING else in life and certainly on the internet, evaluate what’s being said and understand ALL physiology is individually contingent. And the fact that he’s selling books and glasses just added to the lack of veracity for me personally.

  • It’s easy to know legit hackers and on getting a reference to Mr Mark, After losing alot of money to these fake hackers, Mr Mark came to my rescue. I didn’t bother asking for proof but within 24hrs, he came through.he runs all kinds of hacks from phone to social networks, bitcoin hack, forex hack and even western union hack..message on instagram @markhacker1 and you’ll be thrilled

  • Thanks for the slick and interesting video! Clothes are important, because they affect how people perceive you and how you feel about yourself. I would have found it easier to relate to the video if it had been closer to 50-50 men’s and women’s clothing, instead of 90% women’s. Granted, women’s clothes is the bigger market, but still…

  • I also live in the north and it is a bloody nightmare. In the winter there isn’t nearly enough hours of light to keep me awake during the whole day, and in the summer there is no way of naturally getting sleepy at the “right time” nor blocking all the light during the night.
    I have suffered from depression (probably SAD) and so have lots of people I know. I often find myself relying on alcohol and caffeine to medicate my sleep cycle, which in the long term only makes things worse.

  • Loved this so much! Eye opening and so so motivating!
    I haven’t bought new clothes unless they’re ethical in a year and this makes me feel like i need to spread the message. thank you

  • ok..when you have been backed into a financial corner and have had all your belongings destroyed let me know! I have had to change my wardrobe due to the fact that I walk miles in the rain, sleet, snow etc! To be honest with you, I do not care at this point what people think because they are NOT in my shoes!

  • I stopped caring about what I should wear in my late 20s when it got too tiresome to sift through various combinations of colors and patters. A couple more years and i’ll be the guy in the bath robe haunting the local supermarkets

  • They do matter, but in different ways to different people. Some like to be comfortable, no matrer what the occasion or venue eg wear trackie pants and runners everywhere or women who do supermarket. Otbers lime shopinibedrooslippers and pyjamas, dressing gowns etc, which offends many others… Some like to always dress well and their ‘neat casual’ is the equivalent of others’idea of ‘formal dress’. Some like to identify with a group bwearing whatyamounts to a uniform eg team supporters in a football match in Melbourne. Others eg artists light on talent but craving public arttention will dress very loud andoutrageousely unconventoonal or be practically naked to try to appear sexy, but are plain boring nowadays, especially young female such types. Personky, I gfor comfort that does not offend the grkup I want tfit into, but which still marks me as an individualistic type ie with my own personal style. The orrect dress code can be confusi g nowadays, unlike in past eras, whereit was very clear and known by all eg a ball involved a suit for men and long gowfor women etc. Venues and events need to spell out the required dress code. A local club where I live dies this. So you know that things like rubbertbongs or hats arenot allowed, nor are skimpshorts on any ody or justysinglets on men etc. The rules are clear and easy to follow. Respecting the dress code does not bother me, like itdoes some when turned away for inappropriate dress eg women in very short skirts and barelegs, in thongs… When you also study theibehaviiur dressed this way in such venues full of men drinking and gambling, discussing their boats, farms, exclusive intage cars etc, you realky do wonder exactly what such women, mostly exoticcolored types or white “urban refugee” types are there for. A littlebit of “goldigging” or prostitution, perhaps? I have lost count of how many local older wealthy men these types target for their money, and who know, as fellow locals, approacme to do a favour for them. No, not sexual favours, as they areoftedece marriedtnmen and they know I am not “that” type of female… They nust want me to pretend tbe their girlfriend or wife and act this part, so that these harlots from outside the local community just bugger off and leave our local good men one, instead of preying on them. I even wear a wedding ring sometimes for this useful role I play, thelp keep our local community clean and safe from such women from outside. The locals’wives aremy friends and thank me for it, as they know it is just an act I put on. Leaves these external originated sluts baffled and confused, when the local gents come up to me, offer their arm, very chivalrously rough Aussie country syle and smile and say “Ready to go home yet, darling…” Once out the door, their wife will say hello and thanme and I go home alone, though I need not, as I can easily get men friends.i just like my peace and solitude..

  • THANK YOU FOR THIS NFO!!!!! I had no idea about this!!!! I will be Mindful of this situation as it affects the entire world!!! And by improving my self on it, I’m liv ni by example!!! ❤️������

  • This guy sells vitamins.
    But he’s 100% right. And it makes a HUGE impact. Gettosleepeasy.org and caroundyou.com for what I’m working on in this space.

  • This does not solve anything. Because I have Trouble sleeping. You Just made me feel worse about it. It takes me 2-3 hours to fall asleep. And I wake up 1-2 hours before my alarm clock goes of.
    So yeah thanks for the obvious.

  • great video. informative. if u like to read about fashion then here is an article describing the influence of fashion on everyday life: https://sabflix.com/2645/influence-of-fashion-on-everyday-life/

  • Bwahaha, our family must be really caring, or really poor.
    90 percent of our belongings are recycled. That’s just called hand me downs, though.

  • Maybe people need to go back to the old way of thinking. I don’t have a lot of clothes but when I have bought anything I ensure it’s good quality. I wore a tweed jacket close to 20 years before I had to let it go. Mix and match clothing like jackets, skirts, pants and blouses can be mixed that it looks like you have a large wardrobe. I was taught that growing up and never throw things away. There were always family members or less fortunate that need it. Quality is hard to find today and if you find it you pay big time. So it’s hard to find clothing that will last. Mass production has to go and instead good production. Ah, but companies are not making money that way. Make your own clothes? Where are the darn material shops. Spools of thread are so cheaply made that it breaks up while your sewing. Depressing.

  • I agree in some ways that clothes express a part of yourself, but it‘s also too superficial to think that. Clothing are also practical and belongs to a social status. Let me explain. First, if you should surely think about style, but sometimes you need a clothes for its practical benefits, not for its style. Besides you have to remember that clothes that are not practical are generally reflecting your social status, your sex, your culture and that you need to wear certain clothes to adapt. When you were young, you just wear that clothes because your parents gave you these clothes. As a boy, you wear this and this, as a girl this and this, etc… And because your father was like that, you wore this, etc… thus first your clothes represent a culture, a social status, your sex. Sure you can do opposite when you’re older, but is it justified? Is it really a reflection of your personality? Or a caricature? Because to my mind, when some people choose to have coloured hair, feminine clothes or brand clothes (cheap or wealthy one), they aren’t expressing any personality. They’re just hiding their true self behind a brand, behind a group that wear the same clothes. They don’t express their own personality. Furthermore you have to admit that sometimes some clothes are here because they’re required, because you have to wear them to adapt. Nobody likes wearing suits and shirts inside the pants when he’s a teenager. It’s because, after some time, you need to wear suits for your work. And finally, you also start interesting yourself in clothes, because you wanna seduce. Thus you pay attention and stop wearing that old t shirt that makes you look neglected. Sure you wanna express your personality to attract the people who have the same, but you also avoid to wear these eccentric clothes they now like to present in fashion because you know that you have to stay in the line, that there are some rules.

    Therefore people sometimes have to relax and pay less attention to what they wear. You surely want to feel good in your clothes, but you don’t want to be a caricature, who hides his personality behind his clothes, who forget the usage of clothes and wanna be the most eccentric. Such as you don’t imagine yourself being naked, there are some place where you can’t always choose what you wear. Fortunately we accept more and more diversity, but diversity doesn’t mean that you need to be rude towards other’s rules and behaviours. I sometimes like to think that clothes express personality, but there are many other stuffs that describe it and clothing is in reality just a cultural stuff

  • This is just superb, I have been researching “what is the best treatment for varicose veins?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Panacob Psychological Preeminence (do a google search )? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering how to destroy your varicose veins without the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my co-worker got great results with it.

  • Global warming doesn’t exist. When you examine the galaxies, stars and planets you will find chemicals are all around us in every part of the Universe. This Earth is 4.5 billions years old just because we have become intelligent don’t mean we start to scare the rest of the world with this global warming nonsense. I believe in God and this Earth can be wiped out in seconds if God wills. So rather than be afraid of global warming be afraid of what God can do since he is the creator of the heavens and the Earth and since we all belong to him we should also turn to him in adversity. I do agree on one thing and that is we shouldn’t waste anything. Recycling is better.

  • Poshmark is where I go to buy clothes. You’d be surprised at the designer clothing you can buy at a fraction of its original, astronomical price. These astronomical price tags are due to better quality materials which last a lot longer.
    Look fantastic without killing your bank account, plus helping the environment = win-win!

  • All the sleep advice from “motivational” or “entrepreneurial” influencer clowns on YouTube, Reddit and other platforms literally making their followers ill, they often advise/or at least indirectly promote, stuff like sleeping 4/5 hours a night, (or boast/lie about themselves doing it), making out it’s somehow impressive or a show of industriousness that others should mimic. Gary Vaynerchuk is one of them, good for them if they only need 4 hours but they are so myopic they don’t stop to realise the obvious, that we are all different. These people must be the worst employers.

  • I take care of my things the best I can. I also wash them and donate to Goodwill (did today, and have bought from there, too) as much as I can. Even some cheaper clothes can be given a second life. I do my best to avoid throwing anything usable away. No sense in 2018.

  • I love most of the great videos from School of Life which I often times watch more than once, but I wish they wouldn’t go so fast and think you need to slow them down a bit! Especially for those impaired like myself with a disability…it would help…thanks!

  • Don’t wanna ruin the Calvin Klein

    Chanel, Gaultier, or Giorgio Armani

    Moschino, Alia, or Norma Kamali

    Should I rock

    Or stick with classic

    When one goes shopping

    It’s best to take care

    As some of us know

    You are what you wear

  • Actually the fashion I’d like to wear is different from what I wear. I buy really basic stuff that goes with everything bc I don’t have much money xD

  • It’s like a trend to not sleep. You’re a lazy person if you do sleep 8 hours.. it’s kinda silly, but then again, people who sleep good are most of the time beautiful and smart, those who dont look like Donald Trump, and yeah sure, you get an extra 3 or 4 hours in the day to do something, but those who sleep will have 15 to 30 extra years to live ����‍♂️��

  • This was really powerful! I never knew that buying cheap clothing could impact so much! I was raised to pinch pennies on my clothes and I agree that it doesn’t last long. I would think that I got a good bargain but found my self-buying more and more clothes. I will invest in quality clothes and recycles the clothes I don’t need. Great video!

  • Would be cool to get some black out curtains with an alarm clock built in that pulls up and let sunshine in when it goes off. Beyond that, have it connect to a sleep tracker and wake you up at the best time. Think of that!

  • Money as it is conceived today is what’s really polluting us and the environment. In reality it’s just a medium to get things that you need, not an end in itself, despite the many people who (consciously or not) believe it is.
    From what I’ve seen, a big part of the clothing industry is moved by how people want to appear —not to feel, unfortunately. Instagram thrives on those kinds of illusions. Some of the biggest fashion consumers I know of are actually not well-off economically, but they want to look as though they are, as if that actually meant that they are. In my books that’s similar to taking a pain killer for a broken arm…
    I think a good idea, apart from changing the individual choices you make, would be to better educate people on the value of money (taking economics wasn’t compulsory in my school!) and to advise them to think of money as a medium that says nothing about your quality as a person.

  • As if a dim sliver of light, away from your eyes, coming from the sides of blackout curtains
    and a brightly lit room were the same thing… Ok, I’ll pretend I buy that.

  • We always give away our old and ill fitted clothes for donation, most people happily take away old clothes.

    Sometimes even in the family, used clothes are passed on to cousins, the clothes are in good condition but sometimes when they don’t fit anymore, so we try to pass it on to someone who might like wearing them, but we never put them in dustbins:)

  • But what if people see different things about the same clothes?
    Some people might find high heels for example as sexy, while others would see it as trashy, meanwhile the person wearing them thinks they are classy.
    This is why judging people on their clothing choice is so unreliable, should we really be encouraging such quick judgements on strangers in the first place? Why is it that once we actually get to know someone what they wear barely seems to matter…

  • Sometimes I hear people brag that they can fall asleep anywhere, and most of them are not children or teenagers, they are full-grown adults at least the age of 35. I usually think that is not something to be proud of it means your body desperately wants to have a chance to repair itself while you are sleeping.

  • I’m a colorblind chemist who dresses mostly for practicality, and so, you might think of me as boring and basic because my clothes are not likely to tell people the whole truth about me even if what they say is true. That being said, I appreciate learning this, because I venture many people are advertising to me who they are if only I pay attention to how and what they wear.

  • Dave Asprey discussing prevention of diabetes, depression, and heart disease while endorsing a diet that will give you all three.������ Nothing to see here folks.

  • I live in BC there’s barely sun. I hate it here. I need to move for my health. It’s a buzzkill here. I can’t keep up with all these health tips.

  • I wear only solid black (fall / winter) or white shirts (spring / summer). Grey trousers or dark blue Jeans (fall/ winter) and light grey or light beige trousers (spring summer). Everything with no logos. Removing choice from dressing for me is liberating.

  • The clothes can be used to stitch bags that can replace plastic bags. Such experiments are underway in few urban pockets in some cities in India. I visited one showroom that uses bags made from old clothes for packaging the stuff they sell.

  • Before the Euro coin was implemented in my country I could afford very nice clothing, shoes, and jewelry but now it is much harder to buy good quality clothes, and I refuse to wear the cheap Primark, and H&M. It makes one look cheap.

  • Lack of sleep is the path to diabetes… what about eating friggen sugar? This guy is just peddling snake oil to modern lifestyle problems.

  • I wear kmart clothes but I wear them for years at a time. I can’t afford to buy organic expensive Australian made fashion labels when a jumper at kmart is $5 on special. Not ideal but some people just can’t afford better. Salvos thrift store tries to sell tops for MORE than kmart does…

  • I love charity shop shopping and my grandma is a professional seamstressI’m all set �� unfortunately still gotta buy underwear, socks and some basics ��

  • Guilty as charged I love clothes bc I find art in them…having said that and since clothes are so polluting maybe we should walk around naked

  • I feel like clothing is a topic that is often overlooked quite a lot. I wish people my age especially would take more time to consider what they wear

  • Only clothes I actually get rid of are the ones that wouldn’t fit me anymore because I lost or gained weight. I don’t understand how people manage to ruin their clothes so they need to throw them or they are unwearable. What do you wash your t shirts on 90°C? Learn how to sew a button and fill a hole in your socks!

  • I live in India and in my family we have been taught to take care of clothes. They are only handwashed and my grandmother has certain saris which are 38 years old. Since Saris are not size specific they are passed down through generations and now my mother wears my grandmother’s saris. We get western clothes altered if they don’t fit anymore and make bags out of old clothes. Since at least my family is not too materialistic we rarely shop and live a mostly zero waste life. My cousins living in the United States disgust me because of their excessive materialism and obsessive concern with appearance and clothes. They place more importance on looking fuckable than being comfortable.

  • This is just consumerist propaganda. I’ll buy clothes so I can use the appearance to manipulate people into getting what I need or misguiding people around, or just disappearing into a crowd.

  • Jesus christ I just put on whatever’s in my closet. I don’t really think much about it. I buy most of my clothes from garage sales and thrift stores where they’re the cheapest but they still look good and are of good quality.

  • I agree with (& practice) his basic premise.

    However, my mitochondria are broken from a systemic disease (ME/CFS). A sleep study revealed I have a severely broken sleep cycle (a common symptom).

    Often a disease causes a sleep disorder, NOT the other way around!

  • So true! Recycle, repair, re-use! I’m appalled people throw out good stuff that someone else could enjoy.
    They’re just greedy and selfish.

  • I know ppl who worked shifts 2 aunts died between 52 56 yrs, including one died of cancer. others who lived unhealthy living habbits also died before 60 or 61, etc. I Myself worked in various night shifts for nearly 10 years, and by 26 + my health got screwed totally, now 31 + and still can’t take on stress and most days are dull and listless and only few active positive days. So, sleep well, and live healthy

  • I recently went to a clothes shop that buys used or unused but unwanted clothes and over heard them talking about how “so much clothes are being brought more and more every year and how they’ll only pick the fast fashion and designer goods only.” It was sad to hear that most of those clothes go straight to dumpster when no one wants them. And there is an increase in unwanted garments are more than ever before they don’t know what they’d do with them. It was eye opening enough for me so I don’t even wanna buy anything anymore. And I don’t know what I’d do with the ones i already own either. I’m picky and I always prefer quality over quantity.

  • I shouldn’t have watched this. I have two disorders and this guy is basically telling me i’m gonna get cancer and diabetes. Great.

  • I had terrible sleeping disorder for Nine months, the only method I can rest was by taking medications. I obtained this sleeping plan from a medical professional. Immediately after 5 weeks, I gained the best sleep of my life. Those who have suffered from insomnia for a very long time need to test this. My sleeping has significantly improved! I researched Google and found this guidebook on a website.. It is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • Light. Temperature. Tryptophane.

    Dim lights, use protective eyewear at night.
    Lower temperature and warm up extremities (wear light gloves and socks to bed).
    Drink enough water and eat enough protein.

  • So it’s cancer and diabetes for me. — I regularly go 2-3 days without sleep. Right now I’m awake at hour 48 actually, and still not tired. I’m not insomniac just a weird, irregular (non-)sleeper. I also tend to avoid all light sources except my computer screen (Which is on the lowest brightness setting and 50% reduced contrast.) I pay little to no sleep debt either; After I start to feel tired (70h mark) a mere 10 hours is enough to completely regenerate — I wake up naturally. Of course I can pretend to be normal and put myself to bed every evening like a normal human being would, and then it’s the prescribed amount of 9 hours sleep for me. But it’s a chore to stick to that schedule and forcibly go to bed in a not completely exhausted state. If I stay up all night then go about my day as if it was a regular / fresh start of the cycle, I will sleep 10 hours that night (Diagnose me.)

  • Amazing presentation! I’m shocked that 3 years after still nobody talks about it. It’s a huge business and obviously it will take a long time until people will realize how much waste we produce. But least we can do is buying less and recycling the clothes.

  • Remember that this is a commercial. Dave is subtly marketing his products he mentioned. His job is to convince you that his products are beneficial by introducing the problem they solve. He has the motive to convince you of his marketing campaign. Regardless of how true this may be, never get your information from a marketing campaign. It’s biased. #ThinkBigger

  • lol I havent bought new clothes in years, its not some new idea. thrift stores are awesome and cool!! its like urban outfitters but cheap!!

  • What if I can not “turn of” all lights because it is hot and I want to leave my window open so I can breath? Should I prioritize your tips and sweat like shit?

  • everyone shd own and use a full length mirror daily before they go out in public. one does not need designer clothes BUT your clothes shd fit right and look classy in order for you to look good for then you feel good about yourself!

  • Nobody has picked my clothes since i was two. There’s a lot of pictures where i say, mom why did you let me wear that!! But im glad she did

  • She is a great speaker and beautiful. But this has absolutely no point, maddam. It’s stating the obvious and didn’t serve any purpose or benefit.

  • So if blackout curtains aren’t enough, what is? Are there screens that can darken your room even more? I’d imagine you need something that perfectly covers the entire surface of the window.

  • and yet we aren’t what we wear, or eat, or read, etc. We are much deeper but still ready 2 b programmed and reprogrammed by talks like this 1. pity.

  • The fashion industry is causing havoc effects on both financial and mental well being of a person. If a person is not into fashion or wearing variety of clothes, they are tagged as ‘not being presentable’. To woo the eye of people looking at you, to make yourself ‘ presentable’ one has to buy more of trendy clothes. And trend changes every single day.

    Celebrities are the worst examples in setting up these trends. C’mon people tend to imitate them and the fashion industry is serving this purpose quite well.
    None of them will endorse these topics because this won’t generate any money to them.

  • The last time I has a pair of jeans were at the age of 16. Back when I lived with my parents, I didn’t care how I dress so my mum mostly picked what I wear. And she always bought jeans never any other kind of trousers. After I moved out, I decided I was sick of jeans never bought another one ever since.

  • I sleep better when there’s low light rather than darkness, low literally in the sense of height. The kind of light you’d have around a campfire. Yellowish, dim light near floor level. Also I sleep better when can hear people talking rather than complete silence. So long as no one calls my name.

  • I can’t stand the guy from the advert before every BT video. I know it’s bad to judge people, but I can’t shake the feeling that he’s a complete and utter prick.

  • What is next in Big Think? Herbalife? I remember when I used to watch the History Channel. Then they started to make shows about truckers and aliens and axes. I don´t watch the History Channel anymore. Should I do the same about Big Think?

  • My brain has always been much more focused and productive at night for as long as I remember. I feel more energized too, so I usually study or work at night up into the early morning. I’ve never been an early bird and I don’t have diabetes or anything.

    Daytime can be too much for me, I feel tired by bright sunlight, heat, noise and hectic movement of people in general. I don’t feel mentally active much during the day. I’ve been living in different cities in different parts of the world, but my body still makes me a night owl everywhere I go.

    Ironically, I’ve become much healthier mentally and physically now that I am not bound by a daytime routine. I’ve also found that my body functions best with biphasic sleep of about 8 10 hours in total. It seemingly doesn’t matter what time/how often I go to sleep in a day, my body just needs a total of 8 10 hours each day and it’s automatically done, I can’t sleep more than that. And when that amount of sleep is not fulfilled, my body will not function optimally until the lost hours of sleep are compensated.

    I think while most of us are early birds, some of us are just wired to be a night owl.

  • YES! This 14:58!!!! As someone who works in the fashion industry, I struggle with knowing how much damage we cause to society and the environment and I would LOVE to see this concept grow in the industry. I really hope that over time the rest of the world will agree and that this message will grow and become a standard for the next generation! <3

  • I am not what I wear because I am poor and can’t just wear expensive clothes. I have to buy my clothes at Goodwill stores. I was raised to be sure your clothes were clean and ironed.

  • Watching this as I shop for brand clothing. Must advertise for the big companies at my expense. Although they should pay me to wear their brand if anything ��
    Just kidding I wear my uniform most days generic shorts, tanktop and Crocs.

  • Lol I predicted the comment section for this one very accurately. Look, I get it, sometimes Dave Asprey has been spouting BS, as with mycotoxins in coffee. However, as far as I can tell, he is very much on point in this video. Though most of this is really common sense if you think about it.

    And yeah, he does have stuff to sell (though he really only mentions the glasses here. Turning off the lights and talking a walk are free). Imagine you’re a smart guy and an entrepreneurial type and you’re into health topics. Wouldn’t you want to create products that you think are helpful and that you would like to use yourself? And wouldn’t you mention these products when you’re discussing these topics? What good is a great product if nobody knows about it? Not everybody who’s got something to sell is trying to fuck you over.

    And if you really hate Mr. Asprey that much, you can get these types of blue-light-blocking glasses from lots of other manufacturers, too. They really do work.

  • i don’t understand the argument “black out every light”… our ancestors slept under a bright sky of stars and moon. so there was light. not the blue light from our screens, but still light

  • I just started buying my own clothes at 28. I never cared for them before but I realized it does something to your self-esteem when you wear something you chose for yourself.

  • Look up textile recycling near you for clothes/shoes in unusable/poor condition (wouldn’t sell at Goodwill). Also H&M & American Eagle recycle all brands of clothing in their stores…so if your clothes are in poor condition, drop them off at your local mall. ☺️

  • Why does this feel like some guy with a british accent (supposedly denoting knowlege, expertise) telling women about what they already fucking know.��

  • No it’s NOT OK to not have enough time to sleep.
    This is a severe problem. A largely systemic one too, mostly the result of our ridiculous approach to civilization and economics.
    Of course some individual action can change some of this but that alone is not enough.

    Very interesting video though re: lights.

  • Well, that worked for me, after I started using it few months ago, but I still have a dilemma, is it better to leave the curtains blacking my room at night, so sun doesn’t naturally wake me up and have unhealthy morning clock wake up or should I rather leave the night lights from the outside street coming to my room and the sun wake me up in the morning so I don’t need to be destroyed by morning clock wake up?
