Episode #13 – Exhausted? Put down the coffee and try this.

Most of us are misdiagnosing our exhaustion. We feel tired but we think it’s because we’re not getting enough exercise…or maybe its age… or maybe its hormonal.

So we shrug our shoulders and refuel mid-day with coffee or sugar. But what ends up happening is that short term jolt masks the REAL reason we feel tired…and we never address it.

Today we’re talking about how you can get to the bottom of why you’re sluggish or foggy midway through your day…and what you can do about it.

      Danielle – Good question! I’d have to better understand the dynamics of your evening routine and your sleep patterns on the nights you’re NOT on call to answer this well…in short, you likely will need to optimize all “not on call” nights first and then make some adjustments to your bedtime during on call nights to get hours in before the interruptions come…
