3 Lifestyle Habits that are Wrecking Your Sleep
(So You Can Start Doing Things Differently)

 

Getting 4-6 hours of sleep at night is often celebrated in our culture, but more people are starting to wake up to the professional benefits of refreshing, high-quality sleep. Not only does sleep deprivation negatively impact our short-term performance (e.g. focus, decision-making, etc.), it also has severe ramifications for our long-term health (e.g. heart disease, obesity, anxiety & depression). If you’re a professional looking to get the next promotion, help shatter the glass ceiling, or otherwise kick ass at work (while keeping things at home running smoothly), refreshing sleep is a REQUIREMENT for your success and good health.

At least 1 in 3 adults struggle with sleep challenges, and at least half are women. We're women who read articles and blogs, listen to podcasts, buy weighted blankets, and download sleep apps to track and help us sleep. We know what temperature our bedrooms should be, we try to exercise and eat right, we take supplements. Yet many of us STILL have concerns about their nightly sleep & daily energy. It's time for a different perspective: one that helps us understand and address root causes of our sleeplessness.

Participants will learn:

✔ Why natural sleep remedies can actually make things worse
✔ A reason for daytime fatigue that has little to do with your sleep
✔ Why bedtime rituals and "sleep hygiene" techniques often fail to work
✔ Why being "good" with your food all day could be backfiring
✔ How to be "done" with your sleep & energy challenges
