Episode Description

Do you lie in bed at night, unable to fall asleep? Or do you fall asleep easily, only to wake up at 3am, wide awake? Are you tired and cranky, lacking energy? For some people, sleep comes easy. They lay their head down and are out like a light all night. For others, however, bedtime means a frustrating night of tossing and turning, only to steal an hour or two of unrefreshing rest. This routine is played out night after night in bedrooms everywhere, leaving millions of exasperated, exhausted people to ask, "What can I do to get some sleep?" Dr. Michael Breus, otherwise known around the world as "The Sleep Doctor," is back for another visit with Dr. Merle on Caught Between Generations. Dr. Breus will give us tips for getting a better night's sleep so we can wake up feeling good, ready to take on the day. Dr. Merle will take your live calls for Dr. Breus, so don't miss your chance to have questions answered by The Sleep Doctor.
