E32 Is Sleep Overrated? with Dr. Jade Wu

1 year ago

When you chose to listen to this episode, chances are you are curious to know what I think we all want to know - is sleep really overrated? Do we actually need that golden 8 hours a night to get through the day? Or can you sustain getting less sleep by making up for it with your favorite coffee or energy drink? In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Jade Wu to hear all about the do's and don't's of sleep hygiene, getting enough sleep each night, and sleep routines. Although this episode is about sleep, we guarantee it's intriguing enough to keep you from yawning or nodding off while listening at your desk, in the park, or in your favorite chair ;)

Dr. Jade Wu PhD, DBSM, is Board-certified sleep psychologist, researcher, and speaker. Dr. Wu’s research focuses on treating sleep disorders in those with chronic illness. To connect with Dr. Wu, you can visit her website,, follow her on Instagram @dr_jade_wu, and keep an eye out for her book, Hello Sleep, coming in February 2023.

And as always, thank you for your support! :)
