Part 1: Feeling Safe and Secure - The Path to a Good Night's Sleep with Dr. Wendy Troxel

“The best bridge between hope and despair is a good night’s sleep.” That quote from researcher Matt Walker has always resonated with us.

Isn’t it true!? After a poor night sleep it is so easy to feel anxious, stressed, and overwhelmed. But after a restful night we feel so much more ready to tackle our life challenges.

And yet, for so many reasons getting enough quality sleep seems to be one the more challenging wholeness habits.

This interview with sleep expert, researcher, and author, Dr. Wendy Troxel is filled with wonderful reminders, as well as new insights. A few of those helpful insights include the importance of feeling safe and secure as we go to sleep, practical ways to increase that feeling before bedtime, how we should see bedtime more like a plane slowly descending rather than a light switch, and how to approach the morning to best prepare the way for the night.
