Can You Manifest Better Sleep?
Season 4, Ep. 81
Can you manifest better sleep?
Are positive thoughts alone enough to improve your sleep?
I'll tell you what I think in this episode.
Season 4, Ep. 85
I used to claim that I couldn’t take short naps, that I had to sleep for at least 40 minutes to feel good, and that’s no longer true. I can nap successfully for a few minutes. I can do the “power nap.”I get it now and I LOVE it.Nothing has changed in my body, I just changed my expectations. BUT I don’t want to discount those who legitimately can’t nap for whatever reason. This episode is for those who would like to practice the art of the power nap and are open to some fun and healthy experimentation.
Instagram Storytelling Greatest Hits
Season 4, Ep. 84
I thought I would do something a little different for this episode. I love telling stories and every once in a while, I’ll be in the mood to tell a story in an Instagram caption. I’ll post a pretty picture of a bed or a plant and then use all the space I’m allowed and hope that my followers don’t get bored and stop reading before the last line.The stories are about me, and sometimes they’re remotely related to sleep, but mostly they’re stories I’ve remembered or felt compelled to share because they had an impact on me in some way. Or I just thought they were fun, and I love to connect with other people through these stories.Honestly, I always thought if I were to write a book it would be fiction, and it so happens my first book is about sleep. So, this episode is the greatest hits of the stories I’ve shared in my Instagram captions, and I’ve named each story as though they were FRIENDS episodes:THE ONE WHERE MOM DOESN’T SEE A BALD EAGLETHE ONE WHERE I FINALLY LET MY LEGS SEE THE SUNTHE ONE WHERE I HATE EVERYONE’S FAVOURITE SAYINGTHE ONE WHERE I WAS THE TIRED ONETHE ONE WHERE MICHAEL STIPE SMILED AT METHE ONE WHERE I WAS TERRIBLE AT SIMPLE MATHTHE ONE WHERE I THOUGHT I HAD NO TALENTTHE ONE WHERE I DECIDE IT’S OKAY TO BRAG ABOUT MY BOOKTHE ONE WHERE I WAS ALL WEIRD ABOUT THE TREETHE ONE WHERE I GUSH ABOUT MY MORNING WALKS
Important Lessons in Grief & Support
Season 4, Ep. 83
I want to take a step back from sleep topics this week and talk about what’s going on in my own life. How I’m handling grief and loss, and the valuable lessons I’ve learned about support - more specifically, how to show support for people you care about without writing and rewriting awkward text messages or baking pies for days that won’t be eaten. When you don't know what to say, or if your words will mean anything, or how you can help, know that it IS possible to offer support without having any of those answers. I swear a little. You have been warned.
