I Just (Can’t Sleep)! Now What? With Jessica Stephens


Hey Friends,


What’s your relationship with sleep?  Were you a good sleeper as a baby? If so, that could mean you need a lot of sleep as an adult!  My mom told me that I slept through the night pretty early on as a baby!  You’re welcome Mom!  Unfortunately that trend didn’t keep going.  There did come a point where me and sleep were NOT friends and I suffered from really bad insomnia!  From late high school, through the early years of my career there I would have many sleepless nights.  The cause, well of course stress! But also my lifestyle and what I was consuming.  From bad food to late night emails.  


Listen in as we talk about:

  • Sleep and feeling so tired after getting hit with Covid
