Ask any woman what she wants and it just might be better sleep in menopause. Ask her what her biggest challenges are and she might say belly fat or energy but often the underlying reason is poor sleep whether she knows it or not. 

Dr Michael Breus contributed an expert opinion in the sleep chapter of You Still Got It, Girl! The After 50 Fitness Formula for Women. He was responsible for leading me to what’s become not only a group of colleagues but friends

In his 3rd book (2017) The Power of When, which is a groundbreaking biohacking book proving that there is a perfect time to do everything, based on your biological chronotype (early bird or night owl).

Questions We Answer in This Episode: 

  • Your book Energize! Included the concept of movement (not exercise).. And given Flipping 50 is all about LESS Exercise, More Movement I already love that.. Tell me more about how you came to include the distinction of movement vs exercise 

  • How can listeners pick the best mattress?

  • What is a Chronotype and why is it important?

Better sleep in menopause is possible. Some women have very little issues. We all want to be her. But if you’re not, keep trying. Take the right steps and you’ll get there! We’ve seen and heard improved sleep… and reduced night sweats and hot flashes within a week of starting programs.
