Sleep Science Ain’t No Snooze
By Jennifer Outcelt, Creative Content Architect
Are you religiously listening to the podcast Ologies yet? You should be. I keep telling you to and you should know by now that I only try to force behaviors that will improve your life.
Speaking of things that can improve your life; SLEEP, am I right? The subject of sleep might seem like a snooze, but I assure you it’s nothing to lay down for. Or maybe you should… Sorry, give me a minute to rouse some better puns. Sleep is one of those things that you probably don’t think too much about until you stop getting it. But once is goes on the fritz, boy are you in for a rude awakening!
In these episodes of Ologies, Alie interviews Dr. W. Chris Winter about his research in the subject of Somnology, which is fancy science talk for “why do we sleep and how is it done and what does it look like and why is it weird in some people?” The validation I got from this two-part episode was honestly a dream come true. I finally know why I was a certifiable zombie during my child’s infancy, why the sound of a squeaky ceiling fan will put me out like a dose pure of melatonin, and why my ultra-punctual brain sometimes wakes up before my lazy anesthetized body.
If you want to learn more about that thing you do for a third of your life, then check out the Somnology episode on the Ologies podcast at the link below.
