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
Dealing with Bedtime Stressors
Season 3, Ep. 64
This episode is about the bedtime stressors that plague us at night, and how to deal with them. Because I have struggled with many types of bedtime anxiety and racing thoughts, I have put together some "bedtime mantras" for you to repeat to yourself when you're lying in bed worrying about things you can and can't control.Here is that list, but listen to the episode to hear the story of the time I thought there was a murderer in the basement.1: Tomorrow is taken care of, tonight I can rest.2: They are safe and happy.3: Thank you for all that I have. 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.
