There is a teacher in England giving out beds to kids who don’t have one to sleep on because they are sleeping on the sofa, a chair or the floor. Bex Wilson, a teacher from Leeds, England, set up a charity four years ago to make sure kids had a bed to sleep on so they got a good nights rest allowing them to do better at school. You can read all about it here. It’s an incredible cause and addresses an issue not often spoken about.

Talking of sleep…

Up until 8 days ago, I’d been having the best quality sleep for 14 years. A new home, a new bed, black out shutters and new habits of going to bed early all helped my incredible new levels of sleep. Until Winston the puppy arrived and it all changed!!

I’m getting flashbacks of the newborn phase of my eldest daughter and my twin daughters and while Winston the puppy has slept through the night a couple of times, the early morning wake ups and the middle of the night whimpering to be let out of his crate to pee are messing with my delightful 8-hour a night sleep patterns!

Luckily the power of naps are new habits in our house and my Garmin watch tells me how restorative my sleep was each night so I can tell how what I eat (or drink!) or how much I exercise impacts my sleep.

You can complete your own sleep experiment with the one hour sleep test. Add one hour to your typical sleep time for seven days and pay attention to how you feel and what improvements you see to your productivity.

For more detailed sleep advice you can find it in my article How To Use Sleep to Increase Your Performance

Meanwhile, I’ll be going to bed early pending the Winston whining that we likely will be hearing for the next few days or weeks. Luckily he is learning fast and has brought a new level of joy, energy, and working together to look after him to the Wright House!

…before I go, did you see this commercial from Heathrow Airport when it first came out in 2016? ( errr you might need tissues if you watch it! ?? It is like it was made for this holiday season! It is simply adorable and captures the excitement I’m feeling about my mum and dad finally being able to come and visit us here in Los Angeles in December!

…also, if you want to pre order a copy of my new book Words That Work: Communicate Your Purpose, Your Profits and Your Performance you can do so at your favorite local bookstore to support your local small business. Or you can preorder it online at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Barnes & Noble, Target, Booktopia.au, Waterstones, Amazon.ca

Until next week!

Dedicated to growing your business,

Val
