Why Your Mind Races And You Can’t Sleep – 5:30 PM
July 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Dr. Michael Breus, The Sleep Doctor as he discusses how a racing mind makes it hard to sleep. We likely all have experienced that feeling when it’s time to go to bed and your mind starts to race.
You lay in bed staring at the clock, tossing and turning with no way to just shut off. Thoughts about the previous day and the day to come keep piling on. The stress of not being able to sleep just adds to the lineup of thoughts, and when your alarm rings it feels as though you just closed your eyes.
One in two people have trouble sleeping, and 55 million people in the U.S. suffer from insomnia chronically. That’s half of us who cite issues falling asleep or staying asleep when it’s time for bed. One of the most common reasons people experience the loss of sleep is because of racing thoughts or overactivity in the mind when trying to turn off.
The concept of the racing mind was studied deeply by the founder and Chief Medical Officer of Ebb Therapeutics, Dr. Eric Nofzinger.
While working as a Professor of Psychiatry and serving as Director of the Sleep Neuroimaging Research Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Dr. Nofzinger’s pioneering work with sleep patients using brain imaging studies led to a breakthrough. He uncovered a solution, using the simple power of cooling. That solution became the technology we now call Ebb.
