    Maternity leave update: sleep and mental health, habit formation and community, and more!

    Maternity leave update: sleep and mental health, habit formation and community, and more!

    This is a between-seasons bonus episode in which I share two major insights I've had in the past few months while on maternity leave. Topics include how much sleep we really need, sleep tracking, the relationship between sleep deprivation and mental health and immune system strength, as well as the impact of our homo sapien roots and being part of a community on motivation and habit change and formation. Any new updates will be in my newsletter and on Instagram during maternity leave so make sure you're on the list! xx Adrienne https://getwellbe.com/subscribe/

    In the wellness sphere, it’s common to hear people talk about ways to lower your cortisol levels. That’s all well and good, but we have a few follow-up questions: first of all, do those cortisol-lowering strategies actually work, and are they backed by research? And second, how are you supposed to know if your cortisol levels need lowering? In our latest investigative guide, we answer those questions and many more. Listen to learn more about cortisol (aka the “stress hormone”) in your body, telltale signs that your cortisol is high, common causes of high cortisol, and how to lower your cortisol naturally.

    One of the most exciting (and controversial) areas of study in the realm of mental health involves psychedelics. There’s a lot of promising research about how psychedelic compounds like LSD and psilocybin could potentially transform our minds for the better, but it’s a confusing topic with lots of open questions. Dr. Fred Barrett, cognitive neuroscientist and researcher at Johns Hopkins University, sat down with Adrienne to answer some of those questions and discuss the latest in psychedelic research. Listen to learn how psychedelics work, the benefits of LSD, psilocybin, and other psychedelic compounds for treating mental health issues like PTSD and depression, the potential limitations of psychedelics, and much more.
