In today's episode, I've got something really special planned for us. I've been going through the archives and found some old Q&A episodes that I just had to bring back. Answering your questions is my absolute favorite part of my job, so get ready for a fun and informative show.
But before we dive into the Q&A session, I wanted to share some exciting news. I'll be hosting an all-new, live Q&A session in November, exclusively for those on my email list. If you're not on it yet, head over to and sign up.
Now, let's talk about sleep. I received a few questions about how much sleep is recommended for weight loss, and it's such an interesting topic. Personally, I've noticed that my sleep needs have changed over the years. I used to be able to function on less sleep when I was younger, but now, I really struggle with anything less than 8 hours. However, the amount of sleep you need is personal and can vary from person to person. It's not just about the number of hours in bed, but also the quality of sleep you're getting.
If you're someone who struggles with insomnia or racing thoughts at night, like my friend Heather, it might be helpful to plan for more time in bed to ensure you get enough sleep. Also, journaling before sleep can be a game-changer for calming your mind. I personally like to write down my thoughts and remind myself that they're just thoughts, not facts. It really helps me be more of a compassionate observer of my own mind.
Stay tuned for more exciting content and don't forget to join my email list for the exclusive live Q&A session in November. Until next time, happy sleeping!
