Hello, my name is Dr. Duncan Goheen.
We’ve been running health clinics since 1990. We meet a lot of people who have sleep problems and sleep disorders, and we’ve been putting a major focus on this because it’s now becoming a reality that sleep issues are becoming possibly the number one problem behind health disorders that we’re seeing today, and this can be with regard to problems with mental health, emotional health and physical health and sleep sciences are beginning to help us see a lot of mechanisms that are in play when we don’t get a good night’s sleep. It happen on all these levels. (mental, emotional, physical)
But basically, we just need to be really increasing our awareness of how important sleep is. It’s important in our decision-making approach. It’s important in terms of our safety – drowsy driving and being safe on the road. It’s important for getting our work done and thinking clearly and a long list of additional benefits..
So what are some of the things that you can do in order to get better sleep? One of the main things is begin to think of your day – that is starting your 24 hour day about an hour before you go to bed at night. Think about it starting and helping your brain, helping your body, helping everything get into harmony in preparation for a good night’s sleep. Quite often we’re eating too late or we’re watching an action movie on TV, or we just got a message on our phone that could be upsetting, or we have our phone on and waiting for messages and so on. So dim the lights down as much as you can about an hour before bedtime and don’t be watching action movies in preparation for bedtime, and make sure that you’re preparing yourself in a positive way. Read something that’s inspiring, if you do meditation or yoga or various things along these lines. Help your body get into the right state for a good night’s sleep and you’ll find it makes a huge difference. And when you begin to think of your 24 hour day starting just before bedtime, it’s a very productive way of thinking about it because how you sleep during the night Is going to have a huge bearing on what your next day is going to look like, it’s going have a huge bearing on how you get along with people. It’s going to have a major bearing on your inner game, what you’re telling yourself. It’s going to have a huge bearing on your productivity and what you get done during the day, and of course it’s going to have a big impact on your overall health. We know that even one night of poor sleep can lower the immune system by up to 70% which then can lead to all sorts of problems.
