“It’s beginning to look a lot like…”   Tis the Festive Season of endless social events and invitations overload!”     Which of course means lots of clinking drinks, red noses, cold journeys, rosy cheeks, late nights, hangovers (at least for some), and far, far too many scoffed mince pies.    Still, it just would not really be Christmas and New Year without it.   So, if you are going to make the most of every social moment during our winter festive season, then it is essential to stay healthy, and to get plenty of ‘social recovery’ sleep on ..read more

What exactly is motion transfer and can the right mattress really help? Whether it’s trips to the bathroom or frequently changing sleeping positions, anyone who shares a bed has likely experienced the frustration of motion transfer.

New Parents’ Better Sleep Survival Toolbox
The Sleep Coach

There can surely be no greater joy for parents ‘in-waiting’ than their baby’s safe arrival after waiting for ‘almost’ 10 months. However, nothing can prepare you for the ultimate sleep deprivation of being a new parent even though it’s expected, it can feel like a form of parental jetlag that seems to go on for months and months. This is all because babies haven’t yet developed their own ‘Circadian Rhythm’, a natural wake-sleep cycle that’s linked to the sun’s daily cycle of rising and setting. So until they do, broken sleep for all involved is quite normal. The first year can feel like a blur ..read more

Dreams are a uniquely personal and highly subjective experience. Most dreams occur in the rapid-eye-movement or REM sleep stage, increasing in duration within each of our repeating 4-5 sleep cycles throughout the night. A new study published in JAMA Neurology looked at the relationship between REM sleep and earlier death in 2 large study groups. Studies have shown that lower amounts of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep were associated with increased mortality rates or premature death. As we age, REM deprivation could independently contribute to the development of many other diseases, particularly ..read more

Why is quality sleep so important? The quality of your sleep is more important than the amount of sleep you get each night. Sleep supports mental and physical health and is essential for longevity and quality of life.  Good sleep allows the body to rest, restore and renew itself during the night.

(True Story) “So deliciously comfortable you won’t want to get out of bed in the morning!” ~ Max Kirsten, Sleep Coach Before I became a Sleep Coach in 2009 when I started to create my first insomnia sleep coaching apps and hypnosis downloads helping insomniacs learn how to sleep naturally, I always wondered why do the beds in luxury hotels always feel so much more comfortable than my own bed?
