TMHS 006: Help Me Sleep! – 21 Ways To Cure Your Sleep Problems (Part 3)

In this episode we have the epic conclusion of our 3-part series on getting the best sleep ever.

Did you know that you should feel GOOD when you wake up each day? Did you know that you should not have an energy crash in the afternoon and be in desperate of a nap?

Instead of looking for a new supplement, energy drink, or bathroom stall where you can go and take a nap (yes, I’ve seen this before), you need to take a good, hard look at the real problem which is getting great sleep at night. 

Millions of people struggle with sleep issues. Often times they don’t realize that these sleep issues are causing their inability to lose weight, constant lack of energy, depression, anxiety, and numerous other chronic conditions.

Sleep is serious business, but so many people have given up, and feel that they just have to live with their sleep problems. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth!

In this episode we’re going to address some of the real root causes related to sleep issues. So click play and get ready because you’re going to be sleeping like a champ tonight.

    1st, thank you for sharing your knowledge with the world. In this age it is very necessary to have people like you who truly care . 2nd the hugest monumental takeaways for me were the Magnesium (its working wonders!) can’t wait to tell you about it. The blackout curtains, the earthing sheets, the inner chatter and most of all the meditation. You know how busy I’ve been these past few weeks and I’ve been needing something to help me get grounded and get some better sleep. All of these things were right up my alley. I’m awaiting the sheets and I have yet to hang the curtains but just with me using the Magnesium Infusion, and I started meditating more, it’s already helped me out tremendously. And let me say ain’t (yes ain’t) none of these products cheap BUT I understand that in the long run its going to pay off. I’ll pay now or pay even more later so it’s all well worth the money spent!

    Thank you again,

    Well, if I were to write everything that struck me in this episode, I would be writing a 10 page, college ruled, single-spaced paper. And you know I can do it. Lol.
    Vitamin S—love it!!
    I appreciate the fact that you are giving people permission to sleep. In our constantly “on-the-go” society, people tend to look at sleep as a time of not being productive, when in fact, without sleep it is impossible TO be productive in an awake state. It becomes a vicious cycle that can be broken by one simple thing—correct sleep. Thank you for bringing awareness to this.
    Inner chatter–what can I say? 🙂 It has gotten SO much better, and still working on it. Calming the mind in a busy world can be challenging, but can be overcome. At least I am not sending you emails with my mind racing at 4am anymore. Lol.
    I do have a couple of questions- 🙂 —
    1) with black-out curtains, how does this work with the body naturally waking to the seasonal light?
    2) what are your thoughts on fans? (Ceiling fans in particular). In my house, the bedrooms are upstairs, so as the heat rises and me not wanting to take out a second mortgage to pay the electric company if I adjust the temperature, I find myself turning on the ceiling fan to regulate. Any contraindications with this? I just remember as a little girl, my mom used to say that sleeping with a fan would cause sore throats, muscle stiffness, etc. The fan is quiet, so the noise (which could be another issue for some people who need noise machines, etc) is not a factor.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this 3-part series on sleep. Thank you for your hard work, research and dedication and forever keeping me learning!! Much love~T
