Inadequate sleep, in terms of both quantity and quality, is a major problem for many of us. Not only does not sleeping well leave us feeling bad, it is also detrimental to our overall health. Poor sleep can lead to everything from mood swings to blood sugar and hormonal imbalances, weight gain, poor memory, and much more.
In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Andrew Huberman, Dr. Cindy Geyer, and Shawn Stevenson about how to create daily habits to support restful sleep, including how we can best honor our circadian rhythm.
