It feels so awesome to sleep deeply and wake up in your own little drool puddle on occasion.

Do you love waking up, lying in your cozy bed for a bit and taking in the dreams that you have each night?


Great tune, but not the road we are traveling today.

Today, it’s estimated that over 40 million Americans are sleep deprived. When it comes to health, you can eat all the “right” things, drink all the best smoothies and amounts of water, become a yogi or even have tight and toned tushes BUT, if you are not sleeping then it will soon catch up with you and make it challenging to lead the life, have the fulfilling career or support the healthy, happy family that you want to.

Bonus Sleep Remedies…

  1. You heard it right. SEX actually can help you sleep, according to Dr. Laura Berman.
  2. Healthy grains throughout the day encourage deep sleep (millet, oats, brown rice, amaranth, quinoa).
  3. Acupuncture can help, in serious cases.
  4. According to Paul Pitchford, stresses such as sexual excess, infection, overwork, alcohol, tobacco, drug use, excessive salt/spices, worry, and radiation for electromagnetic sources all contribute to depleted melatonin (the hormone that can help us go into deep sleep.
  5. Put a few drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow case. Vanilla and jasmine are known to work great too.
  6. Sleep well!
