How to solve problems while sleeping?


Dr. Rhonda Patrick and Dr. Ashley Mason discuss strategies for managing anxiety and potentially solving problems while sleeping. Dr. Mason emphasizes evaluating evidence and developing adaptive thoughts. For instance, if you're worried about not performing well after a poor night's sleep, compare past experiences to find evidence that you can perform adequately even after inadequate sleep. This approach shifts anxiety from a high to a more manageable level, allowing for better problem-solving and sleep quality.

By reducing anxiety and reshaping negative thoughts about sleep, you create a mental environment more conducive to restful sleep and problem-solving 1.
