Sleep plays a crucial role in our waking lives. While we sleep, our bodies recharge, damaged tissue is repaired, and our memories are stored. When we don't get enough sleep, we are tired, less positive, less motivated, less focused, and are more likely to feel depressed. We may even experience more intense cravings for high-fat, sugar-rich foods. And yet, despite the myriad advantages of getting a good night's sleep, countless people suffer from chronic insomnia. If you're one of them, this talk by Catherine Polan Orzech, co-author of Mindfulness for Insomnia, can help you to begin to break the cycle of anxious thinking and rumination that keeps you up at night. Take the first step toward learning to quiet your mind, relax your body, feel less tense, and finally get the sleep you need.
