In this episode, Dr. Elizabeth shares how she works with parents and kids and introduces the tools she uses with her own children and clients to help kids calm their nervous system before bedtime, so they aren’t wired and full of energy and not able to sleep. She also shares her own story of going through a time in her life of poor sleep and the impact on her health and joy of life and the benefits of then choosing to improve her sleep. “It is worth it”, as she says!
