What you will learn:
Up to 35% of adults in the US struggle with sleep, and over 10% have chronic insomnia.
One of the common causes of insomnia is stress and anxiety.
Often as busy professionals, we go through our day fulfilling obligations, leading teams, answering emails, and resolving conflicts. We get home and support our families the best way we can. This leaves us exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally. What happens when you get into bed and the switch turns on? The racing mind starts, and you cannot fall asleep despite needing it so badly.
In this Elective, we discuss what insomnia is (and what it is not) as well as how to address this troubling and consequential condition.
