Sleep apnea & other sleep disorders.....

S L E E P D I F F I C U L T I E S are the worst!!! πŸ’€
Little known fact about me: I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a couple of years ago after startling awake one night and freaking out when Darren wasn't beside me! I felt like I was having a panic attack and something just wasn't right.
To be honest, the news initially embarrassed me because I TOTALLY categorized sleep apnea as a 'man's problem'. πŸ™ˆ But ladies out there, if you're in the same boat, did you know that celebrities like Amy Poehler have shared their experience of the condition too?? πŸ™‹
Fortunately through some research, we have found a few answers that help! Of course, I'm no sleep specialist so always consult your doctor, but here are a few natural remedies that have brought some peace and SLEEP to our home! πŸ™Œ

❤ Maintain a healthy weight.
❤ Practice yoga! It builds your respiratory strength and encourages oxygen flow.
❤ Sleep on your side instead of lying on your back.
❤ Use a humidifier. (Bonus: add lavender, peppermint, or eucalyptus for additional benefits!)

These are just a few of the tips from our podcast that I hope will help you as much as they have helped me!

Happy sleeping, beauties!! πŸ˜΄πŸ’‹

Your friend & coach,
