1. A New Year of Better Sleep

    A New Year of Better Sleep

    When you think of the resolutions that usually end up on people’s lists for the new year—losing weight, exercising more, improving relationships, getting a promotion or a better job—it’s probably not often that you hear “sleep better” included.

    • curb your appetite

    • gives you the energy to exercise

    • makes you a more careful worker and a better team player

    • improves your mental health and stab

  3. The Benefits of a Sleep Coach

    The Benefits of a Sleep Coach

    Sleep may be the most influential aspect of our health that is widely taken for granted. Many these days aren’t surprised to learn that a large number of the population makes due with six hours of sleep or less on average, but they are surprised to learn that six hours of sleep a night puts your health at serious risk.

    This widespread indifference towards sleep is partly due, of course, to the fact that so many of us tend to look at sleep as a burden, something that keeps us from friends and family, from our entertainment, and from getting things done. But a much deeper reason is just that so many are unaware of the profound difference getting good sleep makes in our lives, even in our day-to-day experiences.

    How to make the most of Daylight Saving Time this year

    The leaves are changing, the mornings are frostier, and there’s pumpkin spice everything everywhere you look—which can only mean that the end of daylight saving time (also mistakenly known as daylight savings time) is right around the corner. This year, DST comes to an end on Sunday, November 4th at 2 a.m., which is when our clocks will “fall backwards” and go back an hour. With this, we gain an extra hour of sleep that night.

    You’re probably looking forward to this extra bit of shut-eye, and rightly so—an hour of sleep is a very powerful thing! Raising your nightly amount of sleep from just six to a full seven hours actually rewards you with a number of noticeable physical and mental benefits. There is perhaps no greater demonstration of what an hour of sleep can do than the

    How many times has this happened to you?

    You finish dinner, finally put your phone down, and find yourself delightfully surprised that you’re able to get to bed at a decent hour—but something just doesn’t go right. Maybe you spend half the night trying to get into a comfortable position, or you feel exhausted at work the next morning.
