Sleep is essential to keep you physically and mentally healthy, but it is estimated that 50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder. It can range from just a stressful time with some sleepless nights, to a chronic insomnia disorder. In this episode, Dr. Risk and Dr. Mazurin discuss the necessity of sleep, what can go wrong, and how to help yourself on those night you are tossing and turning.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
Sleep problems were part of my health journey from the beginning. They seem so simple, yet are so complicated. I had many nights where I lay tossing and turning until the sun came up. Aside from leaving you exhausted the next day, there is something about laying there in the middle of the night that is both lonely and existential at the same time. It’s so peaceful and there are few distractions if you don’t want to wake anyone else up. I used to go through various scenarios from work in my head, and plan some things I was going to do the next day. I mean, why not? I had the extra time on my hands as I lay there in the dark. I no longer have these sleep issues, but I have great compassion for those who have to trudge through their day without a full night’s rest.
