Alcohol and other factors that negatively affect sleep | Matthew Walker
Getting a good night's sleep presents challenges in our modern "wired and tired" world. Light exposure, temperature-controlled environments, anxiety, and lifestyle behaviors conspire against it. Limiting evening light exposure, decreasing the temperature of the room in which we sleep, reducing our anxiety, and restricting the intake of substances that alter our alertness can have demonstrable effects on improving our sleep. In this clip, Dr. Matthew Walker describes critical factors that influence healthy sleep patterns, including the intake of caffeine, alcohol, and other substances.
