Episode Summary

Toronto psychiatrist and sleep expert Dr. Cara Ooi is my latest guest on the RESILIENT PEOPLE podcast. Helping teens to sleep better is her main focus, but as our conversation will show, sleep disorders cover every age group. As many of us struggle to get a good night's rest, Dr. Ooi offers simple and effective tools to help us. Without getting the necessary amount of sleep, it impacts everything from our productivity to our relationships. But as she confirms, there are many options. Her approach includes changing the way we use our bed, addressing the light around us and sleep timing. ​Listen and learn how to get the sleep you've been dreaming of.
