Episode 253: Better Sleep

Getting a great night’s sleep can be elusive, especially as we get older. Shannon and Janine have tried a lot of things to improve the quality of their sleep and we’re excited to discuss them in this episode. We provide lots of great links with this one! (A quick note: When we recorded this episode, we thought it was going to be Episode 250, but for a variety of reasons, we ended up re-running some episodes.)

Discussion topics include:

  • The good old days when we could get a good night’s sleep and not even notice
  • The app Shannon uses to check her sleep: AutoSleep
  • The sleep app Janine uses: Sleep Cycle
  • Shannon’s sleep-talking habit (she runs meetings in her sleep!)
  • The double-edged sword of electronically monitoring your sleep
  • Adjusting your sleep goals so you can achieve them more often
  • Getting ready for bed
  • Shannon’s current sleep solution: Drinking four ounces of tart cherry juice
  • Janine’s current sleep solution: Dream Powder
  • The challenge of varying temperature preferences when you’re sharing a bed
  • Shannon’s eucalyptus weighted blanket
  • Listening to sleep stories to get to sleep
  • Shannon’s sleep mask with embedded bluetooth speakers!
  • Practicing good sleep hygiene
