Session 225: Getting Better Sleep

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

One factor that is critical to our mental health is proper sleep! But getting a good night’s rest sometimes seems easier said than done so to help us hopefully sleep a little better, this week we’re joined by Ibinye Osibodu-Onyali, LMFT. Ibinye and I chatted about some of the primary causes of insomnia, lifestyle choices that might make it difficult to sleep, how our sleep has changed during the pandemic, and she shares tips for how to improve sleep hygiene.
