Radical Reorienting Series: SLEEP (Ep. 3 of 6)

Dr Melanie Flory , founder of MindRheo, and Daryl Richards, founder of DBR Training, discuss some of the most recent research about the importance of Sleep for body, brain and emotional health and wellbeing.

#3: Optimal Sleep for Body and Brain

Radical Reorienting is a body & brain health podcast for adults of all ages, and health and wellbeing professionals.   It’s where neuroscience and psychology intersect with sports and exercise science to ensure better health and wellbeing outcomes, and prevent or minimise less favourable ones.

In this episode we discuss some of the latest research on why we sleep , how much sleep is essential for maintaining and improving body and brain health, and what happens when we are sleep deficient.

The growing body of scientific evidence affirms that sleep is essential for physical, mental and psychological health, and that sleep deficiency compromises overall health and wellbeing. Optimal quantity and quality of sleep is vital for brain development, energy conservation, daily removal of neurotoxins from the brain, modulation of  immune response, memory retention and recall, alertness, protection against disease and even emotional intelligence!  The list is long and varied.

If you’re not getting a good night’s sleep 9 times out of 10, this podcast is for you.
