Back in September, I wrote about how rest is best
. Cool story, I know but what is up with getting your best
rest? Feeling like the sleep you do
get is insufficient isn’t uncommon. But, why is it so hard?
Hurry Slowly’s Jocelyn K. Glei interviewed Rubin Naiman, a psychologist who specializes in sleep and dreams, about his belief that we now live in a wake-centric world.
“Hyperarousal” is a state of excessive awake-ness. And it plagues almost every human living in the industrialized world today.
Key takeaways from her convo with Rubin:
- Why dreaming is critical to the creative process
- What living in a state of constant “hyperarousal” looks like
- How chronic sleep loss dramatically impacts your mood
- Why deep sleep is essential for modulating the velocity of waking life
