Dr. Michael Breus, clinical psychologist and Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, has been practicing sleep medicine for more than 20 years. With all that experience, the biggest issue his patients come to him with is the inability to turn their brains off when it’s time for bed. When the lights turn off, the thoughts turn on—what did I do right today?…what did I do wrong?…what needs to get done tomorrow? This is a form of anxiety, and it’s never been more prevalent than it is today. In this podcast, Dr. Breus, also an insomnia specialist, talks about the methods people can use to combat anxiety in a way that will allow them to solve their insomnia issues and achieve a restful night’s sleep. Other topics explored: Sleeping pills, CBD for sleep, different types of anxiety and insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy, child sleep disorders and more.
