Summary: Thanks to the stresses of everyday life, restorative sleep often escapes us.When was the last time you had a truly deep and restful night's sleep? Thanks to the stresses of everyday life, that type of restorative sleep often escapes us. Many individuals turn to sleep aids that aren't exactly healthy -- and sometimes even dangerous. And yet, without sleep, we cannot function properly and we're only setting ourselves up to fall ill.  As a certified dreamwork professional and the director of the Institute of Dream Studies, Tzivia Gover has created a process to guide individuals to deep, restful sleep in a natural and healing way. In her book, The Mindful Way to a Good Night's Sleep: Discover How to Use Dreamwork, Meditation, and Journaling to Sleep Deeply and Wake Up Well, Gover offers practical lifestyle advice, simple yoga poses, 10-minute meditations, and easy breathing exercises, plus visualization and journaling activities. You’ll also learn how to set the scene for safe, productive dreaming and cultivate your dream recall. Listen as Gover joins Andrea and Lisa to describe her work in this field and how you can find the restful sleep you so desperately need.
