In this episode, I share a rebroadcast of an interview with Built Not Born podcast host Joe Ciccarone (#67: DECODE Insomnia).

In this episode, we talk about the first three steps to get sleep on track, a framework for understanding insomnia, why the teen years are a perfect storm for insomnia, the proper use of melatonin, and my thoughts on when teens should put away electronics before bedtime.

In the DECODE Project Podcast, sleep physician and psychiatrist Dr. Cara Ooi uncovers the insights, strategies, and tools that make the biggest difference in doing hard things and bringing about difficult change, starting with sleep and going from there.  Dr. Ooi created the DECODE Insomnia Clinic, a virtual clinic in Ontario, Canada that provides chronic insomnia treatment with the DECODE Insomnia Program and OHIP-covered consultation.
