So just like that sponge sitting around for a long time, it becomes like a rock. And that little bit of water that we would put on the sponge initially worked fine, but over time you have to pour more water on.

 In this episode, we speak with Steven K. Malin to explore how your sleep cycle may contribute to a likely increased risk in the development of chronic conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. We learn how fat burns differently for early sleepers compared to night owls, and Dr. Malin walks us through how we can rewire our bodies through better sleep hygiene, exercise, and general lifestyle modifications. 

Dr. Malin is currently an Associate Professor of Kinesiology and Health at Rutgers University. The primary focus of his clinical translational research is to improve the well-being of people through preventing/treating type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Malin views exercise as a “drug” that when prescribed in an appropriate way (e.g. intensity/duration/frequency/mode) can optimize well-being.
