Description

Welcome back! For the next few episodes, we’re continuing our current theme of Mindset May, and focusing specifically on our brain health. Because who doesn’t want to be sharp when they’re 90, right?

In today’s episode, I’m talking about something we often sacrifice, but desperately need—quality sleep. We all crave it, and at various points in our lives, we all struggle with it (shoutout to my friends with young children).

So, I’m sharing a wealth of information about the function and science of sleep and some of my favorite methods for improving your sleep quality ASAP.

I also talk about…


  • 4 stages of sleep and what we get from each of them

  • The importance of breaking up with the snooze button

  • Creating a sleep friendly environment

  • Building in relaxation time before sleep

  • The effects of caffeine, alcohol, food, and exercise on sleep quality

  • Light as a supplement to get in doses throughout the day
