I know I’m leaving it a little late to be talking about new year’s resolutions, but I figure there may still be folk out there furiously planning their goals and change plans for 2017. So……. if you are still struggling to articulate a new and fabulous YOU for the 365s of 2017, I have a […]
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 […]
Just chatting about Apartners in Montreal…..
So when I was in Montreal a couple of weeks ago, I just happened to bump into Sharon Hyman, the fabulous film maker who is in pre-production for her next documentary Apartners. Well, truth be told, I didn’t just bump into Sharon. We arranged to catch up while I happened to be holidaying in Montreal […]
#snoring #nosleep #divorce #forreal….
I know! I was kind of surprised to, but it turns out there has been a case where a woman has asked for a divorce because her husband snored so much, she’d had enough. Of even greater interest about this case, is that is happened in 1951. It just sounds like something a flighty, 21st […]
Why, oh why…………
Motivation drives human behaviour. Reasons give us the basis of our actions and decisions. Nothing new there. So let me jump straight to the point – why sleep separately? A basic question you might think, given the nature of my site, book and maturity of my conversations about the topic. But WHY is a constant […]
Liking the new “I Do”…..
What is a traditional relationship? It’s a question I have immersed myself in since my husband and I took those first steps (in different directions) to separate rooms in 2005. As a result, for the last 11 years I’ve been challenging people to prioritise health over the ‘tradition’ of sharing a bed each night with […]
The Comfort of Connection….
I’ve written before (The BIGger Picture) about that as humans, we have an innate drive to be accepted. Most of us like to feel ‘normal’. We like to know that our choices are within a range that does not raise social alarm bells in those from who seek approval – consciously, or subconsciously. All animals […]
My one piece of advice….
In an interview just after my book’s release in Canada, a journalist from The Globe and Mail in Toronto recently asked me a fantastic question. On reflection, I was surprise that no-one had actually asked me this question before. And the question was….. “What would be my No 1 piece of advice for a person […]
Don’t blame it on the sunshine, moonlight or good times… blame it on the cortisol.
A Swedish study has found that we look terrible when we are tired. While, I respect all research, I don’t think these findings are going to come as a big shock to anyone. We’ve all had the unpleasant experience of our own frightening reflection after a night of no, or bad sleep. The main purpose […]
Since delving into the world of separate sleeping, a relationship dynamic has consistently confused me. To explain this confusion, I’m going to step you through the thought path that leads me to contort an expression of equal parts anger, frustration, confusion and frustration. (I would take a picture, but I don’t think it would do […]
