Podcast – How I Radically Improved My Sleep and Productivity

If getting proper sleep is the most important thing you can do for your health, why aren’t more people taking it seriously? I was one of those people until I was forced to make a drastic change in my lifestyle by turning SLEEP into my #1 priority. In today’s episode, I’ll share with you exactly how I did just that in the hopes it helps you improve your overall health. And, by extension, your day-to-day productivity!


You’ll find out:

  • What my nighttime routine used to look like (when the kids were small and I didn’t honor my sleep)
  • The importance of going to bed the same time as your partner
  • How I woke up (pun intended) to the damage caused by years of sleep deprivation
  • What happens to your body and brain while sleep deprived
  • How I changed my habits and triggers to ensure I was finally making sleep a priority
  • Details behind my current nighttime routine
  • How I induce sleep hours before I go to bed
  • Why and how I prep certain things at night for the following morning, like: water and supplement intake, coffee, makeup, first meal, workout clothes, dog’s food, podcast / audio learning, PUSH journal, etc.
