Now that’s an enticing podcast episode title if I’ve ever seen one! The key is the question mark.

In episode 15 of Sleep On It!, I go over basic sleep hygiene, and like dental hygiene or hand-washing hygiene, sleep hygiene is meant to keep a health problem (insomnia) from starting in the first place. This includes a discussion of the two most popular sleep-affecting consumer chemicals caffeine and alcohol, but also some other insomnia “prevention” strategies. Enjoy!

  1. I love the comparison between sleep hygiene and dental hygiene — both are best practice, but they aren’t going to solve a specific problem that needs to be fixed (brushing your teeth is not going to fill a cavity!).

I slept great the last two nights! I shut off the computer a little after nine and read. Then I dont even think about going to bed until my eyelids are heavy. I feel really hopeful now for the first time in a long time!
