In this tag archive, you’ll find podcast interviews on the topic of sleep. Sleep is a fundamental aspect of self-care, and you’ll notice that some of these episodes also show under the tags of mental health, self-awareness, and postnatal health amongst others. Getting enough sleep is a way for our body to literally rest and recuperate – we need sleep to grow, to be the person we want to be and the mum we want to be.
Let me sleep, for when I wake I will move mountains
Sleep, elusive sleep
From the last weeks of our first pregnancy, the sleep deficit begins. And so to, a taste of things to come.
For me, that was over seven years ago. And as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I haven’t had a full eight hours since.
Self inflicted admittedly. I’m not pregnant, don’t have a newborn and my kids sleep like angels.
But oh! That precious golden time once the kids are in bed. The day is done, the jobs are finished (at least for now) and the house is quiet.
ME TIME!!! Yippee
Why would I want to give that up to go to bed?
But how well is the lack of Zzzzzz’s serving me?
In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about sleep, how a lack of sleep affects our mothering, and what we can do about it.
