Improving Sleep & Letting Go Of Alcohol W/ James Swanwick
Today we are joined by James Swanwick. James is a serial entrepreneur, an Australian-American investor, speaker, former SportsCenter anchor on ESPN, host of The James Swanwick Show podcast and the author of The 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge. In fact, Forbes listed James as one of 25 Professional Networking Experts to Watch.
But, despite all these, he is probably best known for his company Swannies or Swanwick Sleep, which produces blue blocking glasses. Now, the reason I wanted James on the show is not just because I use his product pretty much every night when I'm broadcasting or doing Facebook lives in front of the screen, but also because he, like me, is an avid bio-hacker, and has all kinds of thoughts on different ways to live and feel better.
In the episode, we talk about sleep, we talk about the benefits of letting go of alcohol, and we also cover a lot of different kinds of habits that can make you feel more SuperHuman.
I really enjoyed this conversation with James, and I know you will as well.
