Pillow Talk: What Science Says About How to Sleep Better0

Speaker: Allison Harvey
April 28, 2015, South Hall, UC Berkeley

Sponsored by the Graduate Assembly and the School of Information

Graduate Student Happiness & Well-Being Report:

Ever wonder whether or not it’s a good idea to stare at your smartphone right before bed? Ever think maybe you shouldn’t hit that snooze button and go back to sleep? Ever wish you knew more about how sleep worked so that you could optimize the time you spend in bed? Join the Graduate Assembly and the School of Information for a talk with renowned sleep expert, Berkeley’s own Allison Harvey, professor of clinical psychology.

This month’s release of the Graduate Student Happiness & Well-Being Report by the Graduate Assembly demonstrated that sleep (or the lack of good, restful sleep) was the top predictor of depression symptoms among Berkeley graduate students. We also found that only about 20% of graduate students gets the recommended eight hours of sleep, despite the critical role sleep plays in attention, memory consolidation, creativity, problem solving, muscle repair, motivation, mood, body weight regulation, preventing and recovering from health problems (and on and on).

We can do better! Join us for a fascinating talk about the science of sleep — and, most importantly, how to make the most of sleep. This talk is geared toward graduate students but open to the public. All are welcome. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.


Allison Harvey is a professor of clinical psychology and director of the Golden Bear Sleep and Mood Research Clinic at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Harvey’s research is funded by NIMH, NIDA and NICHD. She has published over 200 research articles and book chapters and she has authored two books. Her research has been acknowledged with various awards including an honorary doctorate from the University of Orebro, Sweden. Dr. Harvey is passionate about using science to develop treatments that help people sleep better so that people can enjoy a fuller life including better mood and health as well as more motivation and better cognitive functioning.

Sleep, Anxiety and Insomnia: How to Sleep Better when You're Anxious0

It can be hard to fall asleep when you’re anxious, and insomnia can make anxiety worse.
But you can train your brain to worry less and to sleep better when you’re anxious by using the skill of Deliberate Worry.
In this video I’m going to talk about how worry and anxiety can make it hard to fall asleep, and I’ll teach you how to train your brain to stop worrying at night.
Now Our brains and bodies are naturally good at sleeping, they like to sleep, so if we’re not sleeping then it’s often because we’ve developed some habitual way of keeping our brain turned on, we’ve gotten in the way of our sleep response.

Having a consistent routine before bed, like wearing a sleep mask or doing other sleep hygiene routines, can help your brain start to turn on the sleep hormones (like melatonin) and that’s because our brain likes to make paired associations. Bedtime Routine- feel sleepy. I go into a lot more detail about this in my video on Triggers. So just like when you watch an ad with a delicious hamburger, your mouth may start to water. What we do right before we sleep can help our brain turn on that sleep response.

One thing that often happens with insomnia is that people have developed the habit of thinking through their day when they lay down. When you do this repeatedly, instead of associating your bed with sleepy time, your brain associates bed with worry time. We’ve practiced it over and over and now the brain thinks- “Laying down? Let’s get to work”. We develop a trained response, we’ve taught our brain through habit that the time to worry is bedtime. But good news, your brain is built to re-wire itself, it’s built to pair and un-pair these associations. So all we have to do is retrain our brain to associate the bed with sleeping.
