As a sleep researcher and clinician, I am keenly aware that the holiday season is a time when people try to do too much. So I've developed a few tricks to help manage the episodic bouts of insomnia that are common during the holidays. Following these rules can help you sleep better, brighten your holiday mood and maybe even keep your weight under control.
My generation doesn't sleep well because we do not have the luxury to. Growing up, we were sold a narrative that was written by the "American Dream" in its dying throes: work hard, get good grades, and everything else will fall into place. It's no big secret that this world isn't exactly working perfectly.
