My guest this week is Dr Kat Lederle, PhD, MSc, Founder, Head of Sleep Health, Somnia, a sleep scientist, chronobiologist and one of the leading experts in the field of sleep therapy. She works with women going through menopause on a one to one basis.

In our conversation we talk about:

  • how sleep works: sleep pressure and the body clock
  • impact of stress and anxiety on sleep
  • the vicious cycle of trying to control sleep and a busy mind, and how this can perpetuate/ contribute to the sleep issue
  • the role of acceptance and compassion when responding to poor sleep at night AND to exhaustion during the day

The 3 key takeaways for you from this episode:

  1. Understand the biological reasons for poor sleep during the menopausal transition
  2. What behaviours can contribute to sleep poor sleep
  3. What helpful habits can support sleep and help you feel in control
