I bet that most of you reading this would like to get better quality sleep? Just how much sleep do we need? What are some of the things we can do to improve the quality and duration of our sleep? In my interview with Dr. Marc Milstein we discuss these subjects relating to sleep and much more.
Our world is moving at a very rapid pace, and we are influenced by so much media being served up to us via our iPad, Smartphone and computers that it seems like an impossibility to keep up. This information and how we process it, influences our ability to cope and in turn causes stress, not to mention the stress we have from just juggling our everyday life events.
Dr. Milstein stated that stress is probably the number one reason that we have interrupted sleep patterns, that we are woken at night– because our brains have not turned off the circuitry that is telling us we need to do something about the issues that are waking us up.
Some simple and effective advice: 1) 30 minutes prior to bed turn your lights down low, and stop working on computers and mobile devices. 2) Record your to-do’s in a journal or in some digital device where you can write them down, get them out of your brain and forget all about what you need to do tomorrow. 3) Turn off TV and especially the negative news. 4) Make sure that you exercise, this helps to release the chemicals in your system that help you sleep. https://www.facebook.com/drmilsteineducation/#
