The Neurology of Sleep

Sleep is one of our favorite things, yet most of us don’t get enough sleep every night! But why?

On this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected, we are joined by Dr. Meredith Broderick: a triple boarded sleep doctor, and the perfect person to guide us through the science of good sleep.

Key Takeaways from Liz’s chat with Dr. Broderick:

  • Hear why sleep is so important
  • Find out how sleep effects our moods, and why Dr. Broderick calls sleep a “mini therapy session.”
  • Learn if there are gender differences in the amount of sleep we require
  • Hear why and how it is possible to over sleep
  • Find out why electricity is the enemy of good sleep
  • Hear when Dr. Meredith suggests you seek help for your sleep problems

All of this and more, on this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected.
