    A good night's sleep does wonders to help your recovery, not to mention the positive impact it has on your stress and energy levels. Have a look at these tips from BBC Science and Nature and start sleeping better tonight!


  • Menopause and sleep

    A full night's sleep is elusive for many of us, particularly if you are going through menopause. Many of my early morning Elixr plans have been dashed as I have only got to sleep at 2.00am or 3.00am meaning the likelihood of getting to the gym before work is impossible. There seems to be no advice for this except 'eventually it will stop' i.e. the most chronic phase of menopause (which seems to be the early years). Comments? BTW have tried all the natural/herbal/Chinese herbal remedies, acupuncture, meditation & so on. The hormone chaos is more powerful than any of them unfortunately. Still would like comments from anyone. Solutions (short of sleeping tabs) - even better.
