Dr. Steven Lamm Talks Sleep Loss

It’s National Sleep Awareness Week!

We are heading into spring which means Daylight  Savings Time is near. Our clocks will “spring forward” and we will lose 1-hour of sleep. So many Americans are not getting recommended 7-8 hours per night  of sleep.

What is a mom to do when sleep is in such short supply? Sleep loss is common among moms taking care of infants and small children as well as moms who are also in the midst of their careers. I’m included in that group, especially being a working mom.

I had the pleasure of speaking with  Dr. Steven Lamm (a friend of ABC-TV’s The View)  on the topic of sleep loss and insomnia. Dr. Lamm offered  valuable insight regarding sleep loss and its impact on Americans (including moms). He also provided great suggestions to moms on how to manage sleep loss and insomnia.

    I think its sometimes we don’t know how to shut down at the end of the night or “wind down” we take our work with us to bed and we just don’t know how to let go of it and it eats at us in the middle of the night, all the stuff we need to do etc. That is just one of my theories. Great interview, how did you land an interview with the doc?

    • Hi Heather! So glad to meet you. Yes, turning it off is a challenge. He touched on the fact that we have a lot of stimulation that is hard to shut off when it’s time to sleep. I’m going to post some tips that I use to “try” to slow myself down when it’s time for sleep or time to relax, especially on the nights the kids are in bed sleeping themselves… some nights are more challenging than others of course.
