Episode Info:

Welcome to Discover Solutions, Feel Better Podcast. I’m your host Dr. Theresa Lewis. I’m a psychologist who’s passionate about helping people feel better and I have so much to share with you to help you with your health and wellness goals. In Episode 6 I will be talking about the benefits of sleep. Long, restful restorative sleep is fundamental to our health and well-being. We know the benefits of getting good sleep include:

  • Boosting our immunity
  • Supporting our mental well-being
  • Preventing diabetes
  • Increasing our sex drive
  • Warding off heart disease

Yet, many of us struggle with getting good sleep. Have you ever had difficulty sleeping? 

You’re not alone! According to a recent Consumer Reports survey 27% of US adults said they have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep most nights and 68% struggle with sleep at least once a week. The good news is that the common problems that are associated with sleep disturbances like insomnia are often easily and naturally addressed.

There are 3 incredibly helpful, non-drug treatments for insomnia which I’ll explain in detail in today’s episode. They are:

  • Stimulus Control
  • Sleep Preparation
  • Relaxation

In the show notes of episode 4 you will find the download link for the guided muscle relaxation I mention in the podcast. Please give it a try and let me know if it helps you. Thanks for tuning in! Be well, be you, and breathe.
