On this episode, we have Dr. Freda Paterson talks about the importance of sleep. Dr. Paterson discusses how sleep, though looked at as a less important health behavior to many, is a very prominent health behavior when looking at chronic disease and overall health. As she states, ” sleep is the bio-behavior that underpins everything, and that in the absence of healthy sleep no other health behavior intervention can be optimized.” So what is classified as healthy sleep? How can unhealthy sleep affect us? Why is sleep health not valued the way it should be?
