Dr. Sara Mednick visits Google to discuss her book "The Power of
the Downstate: Recharge Your Life Using Your Body's Own Restorative
Systems." If you’re like most people, the relentless daily grind of
go-go-go, do-do-do, can run down your energy and deplete your
resources. While most of us find our lives full of “Upstate”
moments that rev up our stress engines, it doesn’t have to be this
World-renowned sleep researcher Dr. Mednick shows us how we can access the most replenishing and
repairing aspects of sleep by diving into our “Downstate.” She shows that bringing ourselves back to the Downstate is critical for our health, well-being, and cognitive longevity. "The Power of the Downstate" offers practical, evidence-based insight into how we can all enable those systems to work together in better harmony.
