Episode 65 - Sleep Is A Skill with Mollie McGlocklin


Since when did sleep become a skill? It’s when man’s physiology and the environment turned sleep into a privilege over necessity! Men in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond have so much going for their lives, their careers, and their families, that sleep has slowly taken a backseat. It’s only when health starts to decline that suddenly, a shift is needed to fine-tune this skill and re-establish the key to recovery. Mollie McGlocklin, the creator and lead behavioral change coach for Sleep Is A Skill, joins Funk in this episode to teach the skill of deep sleep and how to rewire the behaviors and lifestyles of today that are causing sleep disturbances.
