USA today, The Record and North

St. Joseph’s Health was highlighted in the article, “We're exhausted: Stress and social media are taking their toll” featured on USA today, The Record and North – which includes Dr. Carlos Rueda, Chairman, Behavioral Health Services, SJH, providing insight on sleeping better and dealing with stress.

“We’re living in a very complex society,” says Dr. Carlos Rueda, “and this causes all kinds of problems. We are dealing with perceived threats from everywhere, economic uncertainty, and we are in constant state of fight and flight. And, of course, people are constantly receiving stimuli from their computers and their phones. You need this if you want to stay competitive but this is also creating constant stress that disrupts sleep and disrupts your circadian rhythm.”

Dealing with these stresses, Rueda says, requires time management skills and re-learning how to relax. “Set a time, say 8 p.m. or 9 p.m., when you turn off your computer and TV screens,” he suggests. “We aren’t supposed to be receiving and processing information 24/7. Stop. Take a pause. You want to sleep better? Go sit under a tree and read a book.”
