  • Doctor Mike is great. I remember about 3-4 years ago I took my mother to the emergency room. The doctor came in the room and he was exceptionally attentive and personable and really put us at ease. Everything turned out fine with my mom, the doctor made a couple lighthearted jokes and we all laughed and then we went home. I remember thinking I wish every doctor was like that. A couple years later I'm watching youtube and I'm thinking, "Why does this Doctor Mike guy look so familiar?" Then it hit me.

  • total darkness? if i turn every light off in my room i FREAK OUT and will actually accidentally hurt myself in a panic when i rush to turn a light on. i NEED sound as well. my usual playlist with random songs. so if the power goes out i will probably fall out of my bed in a haste to get in the hall where a flood light is, and i have a loft bed like, 5 feet above my floor.

  • I think it’s important to note that depending on what humidifier you have, you have to use distilled water. I didn’t know that until much later. Regular tap water in some types of humidifiers can send harmful particles into the air. His humidifier looks really advanced. But the issue is with ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers, and not the warm steam mist type.

  • I’m watching this in bed. On my phone. Whoops. I can’t sleep without my phone because I need noise to fall asleep. I have misophonia and sleep with earplugs and headphones either playing music or FIstream videos. It’s been a while now and either it’s more quite in the flat/apartment or I’m getting better but I would literally wake up annoyed at 6 am because a dog in the apartment above me is barking. I’d rather have a bit of FIstream or music from my phone before and in bed which makes me fall asleep later but it will make me sleep better and without waking up at every noise. And more importantly: not waking up annoyed early in the morning at a noise because then the problem will be a lack of sleep AND starting a day frustrated, annoyed and hopeless. There’s nothing worse than a terrible start.

  • Hey, Dr. Mike, I wanted to ask you about the "no phones" rule. You seem to focus on FOMO and the anxiety caused by social media in general as big reasons to avoid your screens before sleeping, but I was wondering about the effect that my phone might have on my own personal sleeping. I struggle a lot with falling asleep at night, and always have for as long as I can remember. Recently, I've found that one of the things that can help are playing those mindless, highly-repetitive games on my phone where all I'm doing is repeating the same few actions over and over. The mindlessness and repetitiveness help to lull me off to sleep and gets me to sleep faster than just staring at the ceiling, but after watching your videos, I'm concerned that it might be damaging my sleep quality more than trying to fall asleep without a screen. Any insight? Thanks.

  • Terrible toothbrushing technique. You’re ‘scrubbing’ with that nice electric toothbrush. Move deliberately from tooth to tooth, letting the brush do the work. OTOH - Bear is a great dog. Of course, he’s a Newfoundland, so he sort of had to be. I’ve lived with two of them, and six Bernese Mountain Dogs, I consider my self qualified. 😁

I’m a warm bodied girl and between an 80 degree apartment and a 6 ft 4 snuggly furnace sleeping next to me I often have a hard time falling asleep. I have to open the window and it’s winter LOL. It doesn’t help that I have generalized anxiety disorder. These are really great tips! Thanks!

You cuddle with me and play, And take care of me all the way. You are concern about what I eat, Often brings home some treat. I always distract you in your video, Besides that you love me like your shadow. We get together into the shower, And pours the love that never get over. I wish I could be your BEAR, You favourite buddy in your every tear and wear. We can stay together, All autumn,winter and summer, I wish,I could be your BEAR, Your partner in laughter and tear, I wish I could be your BEAR."❤️❤️❤️ Regards Deepti
