Did you know that more than a third of women aren’t getting enough sleep? Are you one of them? If you depend on multiple cups of coffee to get going in the morning, or experience an afternoon energy slump, you’re going to want to listen to this one!
Sleep is vital to everything from our mood, our memory, even our health, (plus, it’s really hard to look stylish when you’re exhausted), so this week, I’ve invited Sleephoria founder Dr Valerie Cacho on the show to share why sleep is so important, and what we can do to get more (and better) sleep.
