Riiise and Shiiine!
Hellur and HNY!
The year is 2020 and I am now 93% made up of chocolate of mince pies. We’ve lost all sense of what day it is after Christmas and our sleep pattern is fooked which is why I decided that the first episode back after the festive break would be on sleep!
It’s not always possible, but a solid, restful nights sleep is just as important to our overall health as exercise and the food we eat. We’ve all heard tales of top business leaders sleeping 7 minutes a day and working all hours of the day as some sort of badge of honour but it’s not a habit I admire (ooh get you Esther). I don’t have a great sleep record as I work very early and don’t go to bed when I should, something I want to change. Whatever the reason for not prioritising sleep (parenthood being a major one) a good nights sleep is what we should all strive for.
I spoke to Erica Hargeden of Babog Sleep Solutions about why we need better sleep hygiene as well as how she ended up making her living as a sleep consultant. It sounds very L.A but business is booming for Erica so clearly there is a market for it.
I also share how I have ended up with a penis toothbrush. Yes. This is my version of clickbait.
