It is a great one off guide for boosting your height fast minus the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my m8 at very last got excellent results with it.

  • Scientific fact:
    Sleeping to your right side is healthier than sleeping to your left side. And never sleep on your stomach because it makes back pains and joint problems

  • Kudos for the video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you thought about Parlandealey Melted Fat Process (do a search on google)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for discovering the simple secret to get rid of sleep apnea and snoring without the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my best friend Jordan after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical results with it.

  • watching this at 4:41am Saturday, so sleepy but scared of my imaginations so I cant sleep comfortably, please don’t tell me I’m the only me who can’t sleep bc of their imaginations so it’s not gonna be embarrassing..

  • Mainly because insomnia I experienced wasn`t really serious, therefore I did not take it.
    very seriously. Yet about five years ago, my sleep problem became even worse. It’s already the best sleep for me if I can sleep at night for 3 hours. Most of the times, I couldn’t make my own self to sleep the whole night. I tested this guide. I experienced good result right on the specific day I started utilizing it. In just 7 days I was asleep 4-7 hours every night. My sleep becomes far better every day.. I researched Google and found this guidebook on a website.. It is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • i’ll continue this and will not go to sleep so i can die without any pain at all, thank to you guys i found a better way to commit suicide

  • I had less than 5 hours last night, i haven’t slept tonight and I have to be up again in about 4 hours, I’ve had a really bad sleep schedule since quarantine started and now I feel like I only need 4 hours sleep. HOW DO I FIX THIS I HATE BEING AWAKE THIS MUCH ��

  • Him: 8 hour of sleep is good.

    No, you cant do that:(

  • Well in my case i sleep once in 2days of 5-7hr and i dont have any of side effects except my body pain i am trying to fix it but every time I fail

  • I’M shafted. I was a nurse that worked nights 3 hrs sleep if lucky 3 kids then broke my back got diagnosed with a very rare disease 1 in 100, 000, i am 46 yrs old with a body of a 70 yr old. i get abt 10 30 minutes sleep over a 3 day period. Longest with 0 sleep 3 weeks my body shut down for 2 days and slept. my body doesn’t do that any more. Chronic pain plus so many diseases = short life span. iv’e been lucky to see my children grow up. Don’t think i will see my grandchildren. husband left me 8 yrs ago never seen him since!

  • mhm ok but i have’nt been to sleep in weeks, i dont sleep at day, or night, only time my eyes close when i blink and sneeze well damn

  • Coming across this while positively thinking “I’m sure this might help in getting me to understand why I’m not sleeping”
    But here I am, now debating whether the time I watch this the more inclined I am to have cancer and even better more inclined to have levels of dementia not even mentioned in my families hereditary WTAF, delete this or rename it because this stressed me out tenfold.

  • this is a most stupid useless talking without any solution and wasting 4 million people’s time for watching a shit 10 million minutes.

  • Dietetics student here! You have some serious misinformation in your video, namely regarding oils and frying. Vegetable oils are not “bad” fats. They are among some of the healthiest lipids one can consume. Also “anything fried” is so misleading-not all frying is equal. You need to specify DEEP fried. With information like this coming from supposed experts like Lee Health, it is no wonder people are so misinformed regarding nutrition.

  • Who has time to sleep 7 hours? I work until 2 or 3am sometimes and I have to wake up early (if I am lucky I get to sleep til 8). No time.

  • Im so used to the stress of homework and studying that even when I don’t have to and part of the summer i still cant sleep. Even if i go to sleep at 12:00 i wake up at 4:00

  • No wonder we all have “mom brain.” I don’t think I’ve slept longer than 5 hours at a time in 5 years. Currently getting 2 hours of sleep before being woken up over a 6-7 hour period ��

  • Ever since March I’ve stayed up till 5-7 am and either stay awake all day and then sleep during the afternoon the next day. It’s literally hell and idk I’m like this, but school starts soon and I need to get my sleepin schedule under control

  • The irony is that for around the past week, I’ve had around 3-4 hours sleep/night, yet despite feeling somewhat tired/irritable, I was able to manage quite well with a small cup of coffee while last night I had close to 8 hours of sleep, yet instead of feeling refreshed, I actually feel worse than before!! Even after napping for 2 hours, I still feel very groggy! WTF?!

  • So this entire video was telling me about what happens when your sleep deprived and NOT HOW TO TELL WHEN YOU ARE even tho the title clearly states HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOUR SLEEP DEPRIVED

  • I have been treating my herpes virus for several years with different medications until I saw a post on how a young lady got cured from herpes by Dr Ojuku, out of desperation i decided to contact him with little or no hope of a solution. After taken his herbal medications reluctantly to my biggest surprise I tested negative. God bless Dr Ojuku for his wonderful work in my life and that of my partner. Contact Dr Ojuku via call/WhatsApp +23480119309706 or email him on [email protected] gmail.com

  • i get 10 hours of sleep and im 13 and i though it wasnt normal, thank you for making me feel better (also i sleep everyday at 2:30 am and wake up at 1 pm

  • oh good… now I will sleep… thinking about all those conditional risks I’ve accumulated. It is very informative, though. So kudos. Wont remember any of it apparently. I’d be interested to know some of the other myriad scenarios that result in these areas of memory problems because I have those alot and it complicates many things. Guess I should do exercises.

  • Mom told me to use organicsleep.best and its the best thing my mom recommended. She’s always into natural herbs and always reading about it. My sleep has improved so much. Take care and sleep well.

  • Ok I have sleep deprivation and I was making pancakes bc I only sleep 4 hours per day and that’s in day time. So basically I was making pancakes and 1) put a boiled egg in and mixed it and2) added salt and lemon instead of sugar and lemon. And also my kitchen table is no where near the door but somehow I walked into it without noticing ��

  • Working night shift is worse. Literally 5 days a week I can only sleep 4 hrs in the day but 9 hrs on the nights I’m off and an extra few hrs from the afternoon. and I had been eating so much carbs and sugars, I’m moving to 2nd

    You would really make my day if you followed me on twitch: Krupek_XD
    If you dont its ok, have a nice day 😉

    Now get to sleep:)

  • Bullshit! I’m calling bowlshit people don’t listen to this video… There are other more accurate videos out there made by actual doctors in sleep therapists. As you get older you need less sleep… A full grown adult only needs about six or seven hours of sleep!! they’ve done tons of studies literally the difference between 7 hours and 8 hours is basically nothing and the difference between 6 hours and 8 hours is noticeable but it’s still pretty small.

  • I went to sleep at 5am and woke up at 12pm so 7hours but I’m supposed to get 11 hours but knowing me 12 so I’m tired really tierd

    1 like equals 1minuet of sleep for me

  • I keep finding distractions and I keep doing things until it’s 6 AM and then I know if I go to sleep I’ll only wake up a lot later and I don’t want to do that because it sucks to wake up at 4 PM so I think “ok let’s not sleep” but I already did that 2 days ago and my parents will probably be mad at me for not sleeping because I usually wake up pretty late and I wanna leave my room and do something to keep my brain focused on something but then they will know I am awake so early and they will know I didn’t sleep and I don’t wanna talk about it but it’s gonna be so annoying oh God help me

  • I went to bed at 3:00am last night, I shouldn’t have. I had a headache all day today, fell asleep a few times. I took some Advil and that helped the pain. I’m never going to bed at 3:00am on purpose again.

  • Since I got first I phone, I lost alot of sleep, i read book someone stayed awake 9 days on cocaine in not far off that level of lossed sleep., forget things, put on weight etc, dosing off in this video

  • i sleep like 6 hrs 15min everyday and im feeling normal, i dont know if i should sleep more,i know that if i sleep like 9hrs im feeling tired af

  • So, if I sleep 7 to 8 hours, but I sleep at abnormal times like at 4 am or 7 am, sometimes maybe at 6 pm, is that still ok? Because technically, I am getting my 8 hours of sleep.

  • I always crave Sugars and carbs. And my skin is terrible I’m 14 freaking hell I don’t need to look old yet!

One of those being set on Tuesday and I had to hand it in first lesson Wednesday. Please don’t tell me a suffer from sleep deprivation I don’t want that on top all my other stresses ����

  • I have problem in sleeping early bcoz I m in India nd I talk to my friends in america at night bcoz its day time there so its tough for me.
