Episode 47: Sleep Science

with Dr. Michael Breus, author and Clinical Psychologist

Dolphins and lions and bears, oh my!

And don’t forget the wolves. In Episode 47 of A Healthy Curiosity, host Brodie Welch, L.Ac. talks with Dr. Michael Breus, author and Clinical Psychologist, about what we can do to get good sleep. The USA is totally yang-addicted: we prioritize action and doing and achieving over rest, relaxation and recuperation, but at what cost? Dr. Breus shares his top five tips for getting good sleep, plus some warnings about what could happen if you’re deprioritizing rest in your life.

In this episode, we explore:

  • What is good sleep?
  • Sleepy driving vs. drunk driving
  • What is a chronotype?
  • Does our screen time affect the quality of our rest?
  • Sleep myths
