Ep9. How To Switch Off

Season 1, Ep. 9

In this episode we explore the physiological and psychological mechanisms of “switching off”, by transitioning from alert wakefulness to sleep.

Dr. John Shaw, sleep researcher and lecturer at De Montfort University, shares his experiences of sleep-difficulties and his diagnosis of ADHD, and we think about how we can optimise strategies and routines for helping to become sleep-ready.
