One thing that we don’t think nearly enough about, which takes up one third of our time and governs the other two thirds of our life, is sleep. Getting good sleep is so crucial when it comes to repairing and restoring your body and mind to be at its optimum state. Fortunately for us, our next SISD guest Dr. Ellen Vora can help us get better sleep by teaching us how to manage our light exposure.
It seems minor but it’s so important. We can let light dictate our circadian rhythm by making sure our devices aren’t disrupting it. Our sleep habits are a major factor in our expression of anxiety, and sleep allows our body to engage in important therapeutic processes like cancer mitigation, decrease our risk of dementia, and do so many other things relating to our overall mental health.
