The Why Behind Your Z’s Episode 5- Why Does My Brain Wake Up When I Go To Bed?

This episode helps answer a question I often get asked: why can’t I fall asleep at night? Why does my brain start to overthink? I explore two of the main reasons why this happens- your brain’s neurotransmitter speeds at bed time, and  emotional dysregulation after midnight. I will also give you two practical solutions to what you can do to help your brain go silent and stay silent when you go to bed: down shift, then distract.

You’ll hear how I had this challenge after my military career and when I started working with the homeless as well as foster care cases. Shutting my brain down after work and before bed was so tough! Once I learned why it was happening and how I could down shift and distract, the work was still there, but the sleep was easier, and I was more prepared to deal with it the next day.
