Your Sleep Stories and Your Health


As WNYC launches its sleep project, the Brian Lehrer Show hosts a two-hour special — a family meeting — on sleep. Your calls about how you slept last night, what keeps you up, and how you're trying to get a better night's rest.

We kick off the family meeting with your calls about your relationship with sleep, then Dr. Carl Bazil, professor of neurology and director of the Division of Epilepsy and Sleep at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons answers your questions and explains how good sleep is crucial for good health and why. If you aren't sleeping well, what's keeping you up? And how are you dealing with it? Does anything help you get back to sleep? Leave your story below.
