Breaking the Tyranny of Insomnia Through Self-Empowerment: A Conversation with Delbert Curtis
June 19, 2020
In this podcast we speak with Frenchman and ex-insomniac Delbert Curtis about sleep, insomnia, and his top tips and tricks for improving your sleep. Earlier this year, Delbert published The Self-Empowering Sleep Book, which is full of practical recommendations based on his own experience living with insomnia for over 20 years before finally successfully addressing it seven years ago. Throughout this episode Delbert shares a number of statistics about the evolution of our relationship with sleep. We also discuss the value of tracking your sleep, checking your bedroom environment, and making time to wind down in the evening, as well as the importance of listening to and learning from your own body, as opposed to simply treating symptoms and forgetting about it.
Delbert is a software engineer, photographer, and author. The Self-Empowering Sleep Book (2020) is a decisive guide to enhance sleep and bring long-term change for a joyful life. As Delbert says, “I wanted to take the time to publish the book I would have liked to read all those years ago.” You can learn more about Delbert and his book at his website: https://www.booksforachange.com/
