Sleep, For Your Health
Sleep. It’s something you do every day, hopefully. If you’re like most people, sleep’s probably the first thing you sacrifice when life gets hectic. But what scientists and researchers are discovering about the profound effects of sleep on our bodies might make you think twice about staying up late to watch another episode of your favorite TV show. Dr. Michael Breus, aka the “Sleep Doctor,” joins us Thursday to explain how sleep impacts our minds, our muscles, our weight, even our genes, and how what you eat effects how you sleep.
Dr. Michael Breus, also known as the Sleep Doctor, is a Clinical Psychologist and both a Diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep. He's author of the book The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan: Lose Weight through Better Sleep [Amazon|Indiebound].
