Show Notes

Over the past decade, the importance of sleep has rapidly made it’s way to the forefront of importance for our wellbeing. That attention has been accompanied by a plethora of apps, books, articles and more to provide us with all the tools and knowledge to improve our sleep.

But what happens when none of those work? What happens when you try all the tools, follow all of the advice, and STILL can’t seem to get a good night sleep? Today we’re going to answer that question, as internationally recognized behavioral sleep medicine specialist, Dr. Jade Wu, walks us through the step-by-step process of overcoming insomnia, sleeping pills, and the angst many of us feel as night approaches and we wonder if tonight will just be a rehashing of our prior struggles.

Welcome to the Catalyst 360 podcast, your trusted source for engaging, evidence-based health, wellness & performance insights each and every week since 2018. If you’ve struggled with sleep over the years, I’m right there on the journey with you. While I haven’t gone down the sleep meds path, I have tried just about everything else. Room temperature, sleep schedule, eye covers, Sleep Bud ear plugs, fueling adjustments, caffeine restrictions and more. They made a difference, but I continued to go through notable rough patches with my sleep. Maybe you’re there with me. Maybe you, or someone close to you, are wondering if it’ll always be that way. If so, today’s discussion with Dr. Jade Wu, author of the brand-new book “Hello Sleep,” might be a life-changing episode. While she will touch on the latest sleep hygiene guidelines, most of our conversation focuses on CBT-I, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and the actual step-by-step process of how we can utilize that approach to improve our sleep.
