Ten Sleep Easy Tips
- Develop a regular sleep time -- even on weekends. Get up about the same time seven days a week. Going to bed at the same time is less critical.
- Set up pre-sleep rituals. Assume a specific sleep posture. Indulge in a pleasant fantasy.
- Keep a daily sleep log. Documenting sleep habits often shows areas for improvement.
- Sleep on a comfortable bed. Condition yourself into using your bed for sleep (sex is OK, too).
- Set aside worry or planning time earlier in the day so you don't take your worries to bed.
- Whether to nap is controversial. A 20-minute break during the day may renew your energy.
- Exercise regularly -- preferably not two or three hours before bedtime.
- Cut down on stimulants such as coffee, tea, colas and chocolate. Drink only in moderation.
- Don't go to bed stuffed or starved.
- Practice stress management and mindful relaxation techniques regularly.

Are you an executive leader who wants to be more effective at work and get better results?
Did you know that research has demonstrated, that the most effective leaders model high emotional intelligence, and that EQ can be learned? It takes self-awareness, empathy, and compassion to become a more emotionally intelligent leader.
Emotionally intelligent and mindful leaders inspire people to become fully engaged with the vision and mission of their company. Mindful leadership starts from within.
I am a consulting psychologist and executive coach. I believe coaching is a collaborative process of providing people with the resources and opportunities they need to self manage, develop change resiliency and become more effective. Utilizing instrumented assessments - clients set clear goals, make optimal use of their strengths, and take action to create desired changes aligned with personal values.
I have been chosen as an expert to appear on radio and TV, MSNBC, CBS Health Watch and in the San Francisco Chronicle, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time, Forbes and Fast Company.
Over the past thirty-five years, I have coached hundreds of leaders to improve their leadership effectiveness.
After only 6 months, one executive coaching client reported greater productivity, and more stress resiliency helping her company improve revenues by 20%. While this may depend on many factors most of my clients report similar satisfaction in their EQ leadership competence leading to better business results.
You can choose to work with a highly seasoned executive coach to help facilitate your leadership development and executive presence awakening what’s possible.
