Dr. Hart and I talk about sleep a lot, and not always about how we aren’t getting enough of it. If we were to measure the amount of sleep our patient’s tell us they get, I can pretty confidently say that it is minimal. Most daunting is the fact that it’s not just one subset of the clinic. New moms don’t get any sleep. Studies have shown new parents can lose 50 night’s sleep in their kids first year. Kids and teens don’t get enough sleep. Adults in the work force work too much and can’t sleep. What can we do about sleep?
