#045 – Sleep is a Skill | Mollie McGlocklin

More than ever people are struggling with insomnia and other sleep issues. Some may consider themselves night owls because they’re tired all day but seem to wake up at night when they should be sleeping. It’s a vicious cycle.

Before electricity, our ancestors woke with the sun and went to bed with the moon. There was a natural rhythm to the days and nights with no interruptions. That all changed with the invention of the light bulb.

Today we have to be intentional about our habits connected with sleep. Sleep expert Mollie McGlocklin struggled with insomnia until she learned how to develop sleep as a skill.

In this episode, Suzanne and Mollie discuss how technology has interrupted our natural sleep patterns. They discuss how we can break these patterns and even leverage technology to improve our sleep.
