You might think this is a cheap attempt at an attention-grabbing headline….. and maybe I’m a little guilty of that. But it’s also true. However, before we go any further I do need to clarify that I am not talking about a traditional, end-it-all, our-marriage-is-over, divorce. I’m talking about a sleep divorce. (I’ve written before […]
#WorldSleepDay – how are you going to celebrate?
A 2016 article (yes, that long ago) title “Unless You’re Oprah, ‘Be Yourself’ Is Terrible Advice” made its way to my browser’s favourites bar and continues to draw me back for another read every few months. When reflecting on why I am drawn back to the article, I think it’s because the main theme is […]
Feeling like you’re alone…..
If you visit my site regularly, or have just stumbled on it while searching the web to see if there’s just a chance that someone else in the world might happen to want to sleep separately from their partner, I thought I would bring a page to your attention. The reason I do this is […]
Sharing my sleeping thoughts to stay ‘Active After 35’………
I was very excited to recently be interviewed by Stephanie Kay Atwood as part of her Active After 35 Thrive to 105 Stories from Life podcasts – now available on iTunes. Joining Stephanie and me was my good friend Bev Short and between us, we talk about how important sleep is to health – especially […]
Sleeping Separately….. an intelligent Trump card
You would need to be living under a rock at the moment to miss the news that Donald and Melania Trump don’t share a bedroom. I can’t tell you the sheer volume of Google Alerts I’ve been inundated with since US Weekly broke the earth-shattering news. My responses cycled between mild interesting, to ‘meh….’, to […]
Who said Millennials weren’t switched on and sensible…..
A recent article in the Style section the Sunday Times (UK) features two millenials talking about their separate sleeping. What’s so interesting about that I hear you ask???? What makes it interesting is that separate sleeping is mostly considered the domain of older people (I won’t give a specific age, lest I offend). “My grandparents […]
The bigger picture…
I recently had a chat with Bev Short, Vitality Coach and Menopause Specialist from New Zealand, on her YouTube channel. Bev’s focus is to work with women over 40 around the world to transform their health, energy, menopause symptoms and happiness. One of Bev’s key messages for her clients is to get good sleep. Unsurprisingly […]
Sexy, separate sleeping…
Many thanks to Katelyn Swallow from Women’s Health and Fitness for writing such a balanced, interesting and informative article about separate sleeping. While I appreciate all publicity and discussion around the topic, most media tend to approach the topic as a curiosity; a ‘weird’ thing some couples do. Also, the predominant images in the media […]
For the contemporary and health conscious couple who have everything, I came across this great article in Builder – a building and design site. Titled “Who Needs Sleep? Everyone.” it provides a fantastic solution for anyone building a house and planning ahead for the high likelihood that as a couple in future, you may need […]
Talk to the hand…
I’m always struck by the interest society has in other people’s relationships. I understand that as social animals, we don’t lead isolated lives and like to connect with others. Taking an interest in others relationships is natural human behaviour and can be a positive experience. But there is a line to be crossed. And it’s […]
