It is 1:19am. You have to be up and at ‘em at 6:30. You're laying there thinking, “Why can't I SLEEP?” I don’t have to remind you about how little time you have left to sleep — It's all you can think about, as the minutes drip by. The more frustrated and panicked you become about not sleeping, the harder it is to drift off. Ugh.

We've all been there. And this episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast is for you, my dear insomniac.

Sleep. It’s so important. It is quite literally a foundational building block for a healthy and happy life. And yet when we need it most is when it is most rebellious and oppositional. When we're lying awake at night we're like anxious parents of teenagers waiting up in a dark living room, thinking “Where the hell is Sleep? It needs to get it's butt home so we can both get some rest.”

I don’t know exactly where your Sleep has run off to. It might be careening around with a carload friends playing mailbox baseball in the middle of the night. It could be hanging out in someone’s smokey rec room listening to ancient Black Sabbath records in the dark. Neither of us care where it is, as long as it comes back. Soon.

We’re here to talk about how to create the ideal conditions in both your body and mind to make it want to come back home again. And turn out the lights. And carry you both into dreamland. And that’s what we’re talking about today on The Love, Happiness and Success Podcast.
