Sleep is as vital for complex life as food, water and oxygen. Bruce Whitfield interviewed FAB Quotient's Joni Peddie.

Insufficient sleep doubles your risk of breast cancer… It’s the key lifestyle factor determining whether or not you’ll develop Alzheimer’s…

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

Exercise self-discipline… Here’s a nightly routine… you need sleep hygiene… switch off at least one hour before going to sleep… Resort back to reading a jolly good paper novel…

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

Sleep is as vital for complex life as food, water and oxygen.

There are two distinct modes of sleep, namely REM sleep and non-REM sleep.

During sleep, most of the body's systems are in an anabolic state, helping to restore the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems - vital processes that maintain mood, memory and cognitive performance.

The purposes and mechanisms of sleep are the subject of substantial ongoing research.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Joni Peddie, Chief Behaviour Igniter and Co-Founder at FAB Quotient, for his weekly "The Science Of" feature.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

Sleep is the single most effective thing to reset our brains each day.

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

We should be sleeping seven to eight hours per night.

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

If you’re getting insufficient sleep at night… have a powernap…

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

…Playing on our cellphones, watching Netflix, working until late hours…

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

People want to send midnight emails to impress…

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

We’re comparing everybody’s outsides with our insides [using social media].

Joni Peddie, FAB Quotient

Kindles aren’t as bad… But I would say go cold turkey… Just see how vastly different you feel…
