Unheard and Unseen: The Dangerous Impact of Sex Bias in Medical Research on Women

Sleep After 40: Unlocking Deep Sleep Secrets for Midlife Women with Morgan Adams

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that affects many individuals, especially women during the transitional time of menopause. It can have a significant impact on one’s quality of life, causing fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Morgan Adams, a two-time breast cancer survivor and a Holistic Sleep Coach. Morgan shares her personal journey with insomnia and prescription sleeping pills, and how she overcame these challenges to achieve better sleep quality. We dive deep into topics such as creating morning and evening routines for optimal sleep, avoiding a negative relationship with sleep, and the profound impact sleep has on our overall well-being. 

Morgan’s wisdom and guidance extend beyond just sleep, as she advocates for a holistic approach to well-being in all aspects of life, which includes looking at our diet, movement, routines, and circadian rhythm. By addressing all aspects of our health, we can truly thrive during menopause and beyond. Her resilience and passion shine through in this conversation, and I’m confident that her insights will resonate with you.

To make this episode even more valuable, Morgan is offering a free mini course called the Sleep Reset Solution. This course provides actionable tips and strategies for those in the early stages of their sleep journey.

Memorable Quotes:

“And essentially when you’re taking something like that, you’re really at a space of sedation, not true sleep. It’s changing the actual architecture of your sleep. So, you’re not getting as much REM sleep. You’re not getting as much deep sleep. And so, you don’t feel quite as restored in the morning.” – Morgan Adams

“It’s really tempting to regress to the behaviors that you know are not serving your sleep well. And if there’s something called the Hawthorne effect, basically, when you know you’re being watched, you typically will perform better. So, if you have a coach, a health coach, sleep coach, like looking in at your habits, every day, you’re going to be more likely to really follow the recommendations.” – Morgan Adams
