Research indicates that minority populations disproportionately experience insufficient sleep and sleep disorders.  We know that sleep is a fundamental health and wellness need for us to thrive as human beings, so we wanted to talk about Black women and our relationship with sleep.  

We welcome our special guest, Dr. Angela Holliday-Bell, Sleep Specialist and the Founder of The Solution is Sleep LLC, to provide more insights on this topic. In this enlightening conversation,  Laura and Dr. Holliday-Bell discuss the heart and head work of our relationship with sleep, including the connection to overcoming generational trauma and negative mindsets about sleep and resting. 

Dr. Holliday-Bell provides insights on the specific causes of insufficient sleep she sees in her Black women patients, and educates us on some of the short and long-term effects of chronic, insufficient sleep. She also shares her personal story of dealing with insomnia that led her on the quest to become the sleep expert she is today, and provides tips for creating healthy sleep habits and routines.
