The Newton Edition [Mollie's Monday Obsessions v.84]
Can we all agree that these are surreal times?
Can we all agree that these are surreal times? FUN FACT: We got more organic traffic this past week than in the history of Sleep Is A Skill. Why? People aren’t sleeping. During these times, people get anxious and panicked. And all this creates a vicious cycle because sleep is what we need right now to stay healthy and maintain a level head.
During the Great Plague of London, Newton was forced to stay home and as a result invented a number of incredible things, notably the laws of gravity! #NBD
What if we were to also shift our relationship to this period of isolation to a time of opportunity? And in the context of this email, cause a breakthrough in our sleep! So many of my clients actively set up their lives to avoid being with their thoughts. What if we were to embrace this new-found time with ourselves to take control of our lives now. If you’re on board, see below for resources that can help make a difference in that endeavor.
📘Resource: The Sleep Book If you’ve reached a level of all-out anxiety around your sleep. This is the book for you. It was one of the core books that helped me restore my sleep when I went through my period of insomnia.
💻COVID-19 FINDS: 💻Resource: Checklist, Monday Medley Newsletter, Shopping List for Prepping Supplies I enjoy this guy's (Nathaniel Eliason) newsletters, and this week he sent out another gem and included his supply list during this wild time. Because an essential element of great sleep is doing what we need to do during our days so that we can have peace of mind during our night, I wanted to include the document he created. Hopefully, you can use this to cross-check that you are all set and spur critical thinking of additional items that might not be listed but are essential to you. Is there anything else that you find invaluable to have during this collective ‘hunkering down’ period? Please reply to this email and let me know!
💻Resource: Meditation Resource & Live Online Event(s), 10 Percent Happier, Coronavirus Sanity Guide My client and friend Jill Strickman, owner of Genuine Real People Casting (very cool company if you want to be cast or need casting of real people) sent me this resource.

Even if you can’t make it, they will post the episode so you can watch it later. You can also access past events in the Ten Percent Happier app for free.
💻Resource: Productivity, Ultraworking, 1000 Free Accounts re: Quarantine SupportI have zero affiliation with this company, just a big supporter of them and their mission! When I got the email this morning that they were offering this, I knew that I had to include it in this week’s newsletter!
