Can You Fix My Sleep?
Season 3, Ep. 67
The other day I was asked, "If I read your book, will it fix my sleep?" so this episode is about the frustrating questions I’m asked as a sleep coach, why it’s impossible to fix people’s sleep during a thirty-second conversation, and the advice I would give these people if they actually stayed in the conversation long enough to hear my answers. My book, The Calm & Cozy Book of Sleep, is out soon!

My Response to a Critical Review
Season 3, Ep. 66
A reviewer made a comment about my book (after reading an advance digital copy) that I believe was meant to be critical and a little sarcastic. I’m okay with criticism because I understand that not everyone is gonna like me. I’m also okay with sarcasm because everything I say is dripping with it. The comment made me laugh at the time, but days later, I can’t let it go. There’s a part of me that agrees with what she said and I have to talk it out.This episode is a direct response to that negative review, and it might surprise you to hear that I agree with what was said. Listen to the full episode to hear why. And then go find my book, The Calm & Cozy Book of Sleep, on Amazon!Here's where you can buy the book:https://www.sleepcoachbeth.com/thebookofsleepHere's where you can register for the book club/coaching group: https://www.sleepcoachbeth.com/the-book-club
From a Night Owl to an Early Bird
Season 3, Ep. 65
The term chronotype is used to characterize your natural sleep-wake cycle and sleep patterns. It determines whether you’re a night owl or an early bird or something else. Your chronotype is based on your biology and genetic makeup, and it is said that because we’re born with it, it cannot be changed.I want to challenge the idea that you are stuck with the chronotype you have been born with if you feel it is no longer serving you. This episode goes deeper into what the four chronotypes are, and how I went from a functioning night owl to an early bird, and why I'm happier for it.Learn more and pre-order my new book at www.sleepcoachbeth.com

I am so blessed.4: May I be happy. May I be well. May I be safe. May I be peaceful and at ease.6: I am safe and loved. I'm fine.
