“There’s other ways to be able to help sleep better and we’re gonna talk about that in just a moment. But, alas, first let us pose the question, ‘Why is sleep even important?’ I mean sleep was so last year. It’s really not important anymore. Well, I’m kidding. Of course it’s really important. And there’s so many health benefits on so many levels.” (05:30) (Dr. Brian)
“Let’s talk about two really good reasons that we need proper sleep. Number one is sleep keeps us mentally sharp. It’s really important for our brain and also helps with memory. Number two, lack of sleep increases the risk, in adults, of heart attacks and strokes.” (07:05) (Dr. Brian)
“Caffeine’s in lots of things besides just coffee and tea; it’s in chocolate, sodas, energy drinks. And it can keep you up. So, when people are particularly sensitive to caffeine then even caffeine at noon can have an effect at nighttime.” (09:46) (Dr. Brian)
“Most people sleep either belly or on their side. And, the issue with sleeping on your belly is that it causes your head to turn, and it can increase neck and back pain. Certainly that can interfere with getting a good night’s sleep.” (16:59) (Dr. Brian)
“Snoring can also be associated with sleep apnea, which is where the breathing is effected to the point that there’s reduced oxygen. And that can really interfere with sleep.” (18:21) (Dr. Brian)
“Washing your sheets can help you sleep better. Yes, that’s true and it’s been studied. Plus, doesn’t it just feel so good when you put on your PJs and you slip into that nice, freshly washed pair of sheets in your bed?” (20:20) (Dr. Brian)
