Dr Oz: Sleep With Me Podcast To Fall Asleep
Approximately 80 million people are suffering from insomnia, which is why Dr Oz wanted to tackle the ways you can improve your sleep starting tonight. One possible insomnia solution is getting a lot of attention. It’s called Sleep with Me and it’s actually a free podcast! Ranata put it to the test and found that it definitely made her drowsy and the man’s voice eased her into sleep easier than normal.
The creator of the podcast joined the show via Skype and said he was thrilled to be able to help people achieve better sleep. As for why he thinks it works, he thinks it has to do with the human connection and helping people relax and feel better before drifting off.

Dr Oz: Get Your Sleep School
Add up your total score from the quiz, then remember that total number. If you scored between 90-100, you’re in the green, 76-90 you’re in the yellow, 66-75, you’re in the orange, and 0-65 you’re in the red. If you take the quiz on Dr Oz’s website, it will calculate the score for you. But if you’re in the red, you’re in the “danger zone.” The orange zone is below-average sleep and there’s a lot of room for improve. Yellow is above average sleep which means you could improve a little but you’re relatively okay. Green means you’re doing wonderful!
