LISTEN: Summer is that one step closer with clocks moving forward one hour at 2am on Sunday.

While clock changing is one thing that can mess with your sleep - there are many other hindrances to getting your full 8 hours.

Dr Tony Fernando is a psychiatrist, sleep and insomnia specialist at Practice 92 in Auckland’s Mt Eden and joins Leah Panapa to answer your questions on sleep.

In this episode:

  • How much sleep do we really need?
  • Is a routine important before bed?
  • What about watching TV in bed until you fall asleep?
