Welcome to the Messy Middle Road Trip podcast. Today, we’re talking to Krista Cumming the Founder of My Midlife Mentor and The Sleep Better Tonight Method, a sleep program designed for midlife women. Krista is a Certified Sleep Science Coach and a Registered Nutritional Therapist.  After retiring from a 27-year career as a dental hygienist, she changed paths and began supporting midlife women who want to fall asleep and stay asleep without using prescription medication.

We know you’ll love, so settle in as we hit the road on our next road trip.

In this episode, we talk about…

  • What is a certified sleep science coach, and why women need one?
  • Whether or not women in midlife have more trouble falling asleep than other people and why.
  • Are hormones the cause of our insomnia or that too much of a one size fits all approach?
  • How much sleep do we really need, and do our needs change as we get older?
  • Sleep tactics to try during stressful and anxious times.
  • Helpful day-to-day strategies to address sleeplessness.
  • Common sleep problems for midlife women.
  • The book “Why Can’t We Sleep” about why Gen X women are up in the middle of the night.
  • The role of supplements as part of a sleep strategy.
  • The role of caffeine and alcohol in keeping us awake.
  • Krista’s thoughts on sleeping pills and whether or not they make the problem worse.
  • How to fall asleep and stay asleep to save our exhausted bodies and busy minds.
