Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Kevin Majeres talks all about sleep: how our brains and bodies work together to accomplish sleep, some of the things that interrupt our ability to sleep, and the most important steps to take to getting a good night’s sleep.
Top Three Take-Aways
1. We can love God while sleeping, just by thinking about Him while falling asleep and having Him be the first thing we think about when we wake up.
2. Trying to fall asleep can be the enemy of falling asleep. We have to allow sleep, not try to force it.
3. Some of the main enemies of sleep: caffeine close to bedtime, bright blue lights from computer screens, phones, and bright LED lights, eating near bedtime, and food insensitivities.
