How to Get Fitter, Faster and Stronger with Quality Sleep

overtrainingAh, sleep. We all know how much we need it, mostly because when we don’t get enough, the world takes on a different, more negative hue. Lights seem brighter and sounds more vivid, and not in a good way. Perpetual fogginess clouds our thoughts, slurs our words, and prevents us from focusing on anything but the coffee pot timer. And then there’s the sleep deprivation research corroborating our experiences and explaining in lurid detail just how vital sleep is for our health. I’ve done my part in bringing this information to you, focusing for the most part on the metabolic health benefits of getting sufficient quality time with everyone’s sweet slumbery mistress. I’ve linked to articles discussing the links between poor sleep and ill liver health, disrupted metabolic function, and cancer. If you’re a regular reader of MDA, you’re probably aware of all this. Bad sleep can make you fat, sick, and prone to serious degenerative diseases.

New Mark’s Daily Apple Forum App

I’m pleased to announce a free smart phone and tablet app for the Mark’s Daily Apple Forum. I’ve been using it for the last week and have found that it makes browsing, reading and writing in the forum on smart devices a cinch.

If you’re not familiar with the forum, this is the perfect time to create an account and connect with the Mark’s Daily Apple community. There’s no better place to communicate with and get outstanding feedback from fellow paleo/Primal enthusiasts.

Here are a few screenshots of the new app (click to enlarge):
