Bulletproof sleep is the art of effectively maximizing the quality of sleep in the shortest amount of time possible. Quality does not have to mean quantity. Stop wasting time falling asleep slowly or in light sleep; instead spend more time dreaming or in deep sleep for physical recovery. Quality sleep is essential for a productive brain, a fat-burning metabolism, and optimal body.
