We all know sleep is super important when it comes to our health right?  But why?

I love this episode, it is a bit of an education piece from one of my Wellness Coaching Clients who also happens to be a Professor at UWA and an expert in sleep!

Professor Romola Bucks will explain what sleep is exactly as well as the sleep stages.  We will learn what healthy sleep is, what happens when we don’t get enough sleep and explore some common sleep disorders.

Luckily sleep can be improved with behavioral change and positive habits like those that we practice in Thrive and in Wellness Sistas.

I am closing the doors on this Intake of Primalistas (Primal Alternative Producers) on March 29th, so if you want to bake from home, have a business that suits you AND help others and earn some money it’s time to Apply to Become a Primalista.
