Sleep Rituals for Tired Mums - Shea Morrison

MWH 130 : Sleep Rituals For Tired Mums with Shea Morrison of The Goodnight Co.

Sleep Rituals For Tired Mums

Ah, sleep. What even is that once you have kids? I will be the first to admit that my relationship with sleep became a little skewed once I had my boys… I was burning the midnight oil to try and finish writing one more module, answer one more email – one more this, one more that.

#CanYouRelate? I bet you can.

Over the last couple of years, I seriously became so used to not getting enough sleep that it became my new norm. It's not the best way to live (certainly not the healthiest) and I know that other bizmums are in the same sleepy boat.

That's why I'm using this space to chat with my special guest all about sleep wellness, how to create rituals, and really make it a habit to get a great night's sleep.


Before we dive into the episode, I want to say high-five, sister! I'm so proud that you're taking the time to develop yourself professionally by listening to my podcasts. Practising self care in this hectic world as a mum is tough, but you are a true mother hustler.

So, I am really excited for today's conversation because we're covering a topic a mum with hustle would love to get more of… sleep!

Today's guest is Shea Morrison. After a busy corporate career and becoming a mum, Shea joined her best friend, Danielle on their dream journey. With a personal interest in the role of sleep in wellbeing, she realised the importance of creating a ritual before bed. All of her research has led her to a carefully curated product range, focussed on creating the perfect night time routine for a restful sleep.

During this episode, Shea is going to share her insider strategies and knowledge to help you create a sleep ritual, establish a great relationship with sleep, and get those z's, mama!


I hope you have drank your coffee and are ready to nod along because this episode is something that will really help you establish a better relationship with sleep, even if you have littles!
