Do you:

• Have your ceiling flaws memorized from lying awake at night staring at them.

• Wake up too early and then can’t go back to sleep?

• Wake up already exhausted?

Most of us need seven to eight hours of sleep each night for optimal daytime functioning, but at least 50 percent of Americans struggle with sleep problems—and these problems tend to get worse as we get older.

As a physician, I am no stranger to sleep problems. Medical residency was a life filled with chronic caffeine stimulation, an endless to-do list, long hours in front of a computer screen, stress and late work hours with little (or no) sleep. During those years, even when I had time to sleep, I couldn’t. I felt miserable and was all too familiar with the effects of poor sleep on my performance, memory and mood—which was really scary as I was handling life-and-death matters at work. After medical training ended, it took me about eight months of concerted effort to regain normal sleep.
