Ask Daniel #29: To Jo, Gary, Chad, Hamza and Lea

Jo is breaking all the rules because she doesn’t care any more. Gary had occasional troubles falling asleep but after taking sleeping pills three times now doesn’t sleep trough ever. Could the pills have done that? Chad shares an article looking at whether we really need 8 hours of sleep – Hamza asks about corona virus. Lea wonders if people with leg movements or apneas in sleep notice that themselves or not.

Do you have trouble sleeping? Can’t sleep? Have questions about insomnia or sleep? Please leave a comment or send me an email at and I will be happy to share my thoughts as a video or audio reply.
