Do you wish you could sleep better at night? Insomnia, anyone?! Welp, relief is on the way because we’re talking all about sleep on today’s episode!

My special guest today is health coach Shae Leonard and she’s simplifying how to sleep better at night. Whether it’s stress or something else that’s keeping you up at night, Shae leads us through seven simple steps to course correct that’ll have you sleep like a baby in no time at all.

Here’s how. 


My special guest today is Shae Leonard and she’s simplifying how to sleep better at night.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

  • How she defines “sleep hygiene” and why it’s so important to focus on this right now
  • What the first step is to improve your sleep hygiene to help you sleep better tonight
  • What the 7 fundamentals for great sleep hygiene are and how these simple shifts can make a positive impact in the long run
  • Everything we need to know about “full-spectrum light” – what it is and why we need to avoid it 1-2 hours before bedtime, plus she shares a few healthy alternatives
  • Why we need to avoid amping up our brains at night and those sneaky ways we do it without even knowing it
  • …and ultimately, why it is important to “quiet your digestion” at night – how to do it, starting tonight.

It’s crazy to think that the majority of people are going to be fast asleep at 2am tonight in your neighborhood and city. Like the whole world powers down to rest, all at once. If you’re someone prone to late night brain whirling or you seem to be tossing and turning for no reason at all, I hope today’s conversation really gives you some tools to try out tonight.

And let us know what worked! I’m always keen to hear from listeners on what you’re learning from the podcast, testing out in your own life, and seeing results in simplifying… reach out on Instagram @thesimplifiers, tag us, DM me… I’d love to hear from you!
