My guest today is Dr. W. Chris Winter. Chris is a sleep specialist, helping people through his private clinic, his work with professional sports teams, and the book he wrote “The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep is Broken and How to Fix It”. He’s been dubbed “The Sleep Whisperer” by Arianna Huffington which, after reading his book and having this chat with him, seems like a very apt nickname!

I’m very excited to bring this chat to you as I feel that, in the greater dialogue around health and wellness, sleep is a very under-appreciated and under-represented topic. There’s a seemingly endless supply of quote unquote experts out there pitching miracle diets and workout plans, yet genuine experts on the subject of sleep are somewhat hard to come by! And I know both from my own personal experience and the conversations I’ve had with other people that insufficient sleep, poor quality sleep, and above all else difficulty falling asleep, are actually VERY common issues! If you’re someone who does struggle with sleep, this interview will help bridge the gap for you.

In this chat Chris and I discuss the difference between being fatigued and being sleepy, how having a consistent wake up time is more important than a consistent bedtime, the effect technology has on the workings of our mind and subsequently our sleep, and much more.

So enjoy this chat with the sleep whisperer himself, Dr. W. Chris Winter.
