Sleep.... we know we need it, and yet most of us aren't getting enough of it.
And the reality is, sleep is one of the biggest unaddressed factors affecting not just our energy and mood, but also our results on the scale.
My clients can be doing everything else right, and if they’re not addressing their sleep, the needle just isn’t going to move.
Crazy, right? And it’s not just because being so danged tired all the time reduces willpower or increases cravings… it’s actually deeper than all of that… it’s about hormones. And the truth is, if we can fix the physiological stuff that’s going on underneath that stubborn muffin top, we don’t have to worry so much about tracking food and counting points. How awesome is that?? Win-win.

3 WAYS TO GET MORE SLEEP FOR EASIER WEIGHT LOSS
So here are three ways to get the sleep you need (without meds, meditation, or going to bed at the same time as the kids):
1 - Get some natural light first thing in the morning to anchor your day, and set your circadian rhythm (24 hour wake/sleep cycle). Ideally outdoors, like a short walk. At the very least, open your curtains.
2 - Use calming essential oils like lavender to relax, unwind, and support healthy and balanced sleep hormones.
3 - Take an Epsom salts bath before bed. This will boost your levels of magnesium, which is calming to the nervous system. A few minutes is all you need; it doesn't need to be a whole scene with candles and music.
Pick one or two to start with and build from there.
