Sleep

For everyone, everywhere.

Business is great, and for that I am very thankful.  I write this from the American Airlines Admirals Club, where I am cooling my heels until my red-eye flight home from Denver at the wee hours of tomorrow morning.  As much as I enjoy travel and the work I do, I struggle to get enough rest. Especially when time zones change, and Advil PM taken too late makes sleep elusive. Age doesn’t help, and lack of sleep automatically encourages new and unwanted pounds to creep on. Couple that with screen time, that magnetic demon, I have to force myself to pick up a book and close the cover on my laptop — a thief of time and sleep — which calls me to engage in something that seems to matter but really doesn’t.

I’d love to hear from you about how you manage to get enough rest, and if that has changed as you age. Thanks for your engagement and partnership.

  1. Hi Jody, Thirteen years ago I went through menopause when I was 42 and working at Walter E. Smithe. That is of course where I had the great pleasure of training with you!!! With regards to sleep I have learned that I can’t drink any beverages with caffeine and no foods with MSG. I try my best to be consistent when I go to bed and wake up. I sleep with a fan on me to keep me cool. Yes, I sleep with a fan even in winter. What works like a dream for me is the Costco version of Unison. I take 1/2 a pill at bedtime and I sleep a sound 6-8 hours. Hope these suggestions work for you too.
