A little bit about this show…

I wanted to start this year with a couple of mash ups – what I’ve called the Summer Series. The first topic I wanted to revisit is SLEEP. I’m really excited about the three x 20min chunks I’ve extracted from past episodes to bring you an overall picture of how to be a sleep ninja! Hopefully this show and what these three guests bring to the table in the sleep discussion helps you move further along if you’re not a great sleeper. There are a lot of things we can do to sort that out!
