Are you tired? Depressed? Overweight? Maybe you’re not getting enough sleep! The Centers for Disease Control says that at least a third of us aren’t sleeping enough. We’re not getting the recommended seven-plus hours of sleep on a regular basis and it’s costing us – about $35 billion a year for doctors’ visits, medication and lost productivity. We find out more about why getting a good night’s sleep is important and how to get better sleep.

National Sleep Awareness Week is March 6-13. https://sleepfoundation.org/SAW

Guests
Dr. Kristin Daley – clinical psychologist at Southeast Psych

Dr. Nicole Mims – sleep physician at Carolinas Healthcare System
