Ask Daniel #51: Cora has extreme paradoxical insomnia. Luke plans a sleep detox.

Cora’s life has been disrupted in a major way from insomnia since April. She has vivid dreams after hours of hours of laying with her eyes closed in bed. What to do?

Luke is ready for a sleep detox. He knows that he would do better tuning out from the sleep universe for a while. But how do you stop yourself from watching sleep related videos that gives you comfort?

Mr. Peace drops some great live questions including one about blue light. Do coaches Daniel & Michael have conflicting opinions on this topic?

Do you have trouble sleeping? Can’t sleep? Have questions about insomnia or sleep? Please leave a comment or send an email:
