Can psychology help us get a better night’s sleep? Our presenter Ginny Smith hears how worry about sleep is sometimes more of a problem than lack of sleep itself. She gives us some evidence-backed sleep tips and finds out about “sleep engineering” – deliberately manipulating the sleep process to aid memory and enhance its health benefits.

Our guests are Professor Kenneth Lichstein at the University of Alabama and Professor Penny Lewis at the University of Cardiff.

  1. It is an iteresting episode. In fact sleeping is like switching off your computer. As we know computer is a hardware and software. Body is the hardware and mind is tje software. Sometimes the computer can not be switched off due to a hardware or software. Sleeping well need a healthy body and quiet mind. Having quiet mind needs a process of saving good thoughts ,ideas,…etc. and deleting harmful thoughts, feelings..,etc. So keep your computer in a good staye.
