Do you use food as a way of numbing your feelings? So many people do. It could be because you’re stressed, upset, anxious or even just bored.

You long for sleep, but you can’t calm your racing mind. You may even feel tired before going to bed. But as soon as your head hits the pillow, it happens again. You’re wide awake. You can’t stop thinking. It’s the worst.
I regularly speak to groups about the necessity of sleep for prevention of burnout, management of stress, improvement of …Continue Reading »
Do you frequently experience anxiety symptoms such as nervousness, trembling, or runaway emotions? Do you also frequently experience symptoms of hypoglycemia? The two may be closely related.

For most of my life, I haven’t had difficulties sleeping—once I actually got myself to bed. Getting myself into bed at a decent hour is what has been my nemesis. I love to stay up late and chat, watch movies, snack—pretty much any activity that isn’t about going to sleep. I know I need to get to …Continue Reading »
