The key to fitness, health and wellness are sleep. With poor sleep comes poor foundations. With poor foundations, we cannot build. Everything will come crashing down. People through time have worn a lack of sleep, due to hustle and getting stuff done, as a badge of honor. It's time to put to bed that misconception with Episode 44 and our co-host Kevin Cottrell of fitfluentialradio.com and the HealthCast Now Podcast. Kevin found out the hard way. Through poor lifestyle and environmental choices, Kevin developed a Melanoma Cancer. Although he was a fit guy, his fitness was built upon a foundation of poor sleep. Kevin made critical lifestyle choices and is now healthier than ever. This episode is about the importance of sleep and lifestyle choices.

Effects on our lifestyle and our environment on the epigenetics side are the switches that you turn on or off. This is not only for health and wellness but also the dark side meaning, chronic diseases, and potentially early death. You should be focusing on optimizing our lifestyle and environment. In other words, we are not going to be optimized if we are inadvertently destroying our foundation.
Don't fall prey to the argument of, I am going to just eat more healthy or exercise more because if the foundations are destroyed it is not going to work. Focus on sleep, focus on a circadian optimization plan, which is the light/dark cycle and eliminating the things that get you off track.
