Sleep. We all need it and yet most of us don’t get enough of it. Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends 9-12 hours per night for younger kids and 8-10 hours for teens? It’s hard to fit everything in — from school work and sports to social lives and screens. But the importance of sleep on our physical and mental health cannot be understated. Tune into today’s podcast episode to hear from CHC’s Catherine T. Harvey Center for Clinical Services experts Eric Loughhead, LMFT and Jensi Gise, MA as they share the science and strategies behind a good night’s sleep.
