In this episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket I talk about my cat ALF's near death experience and how this has amped up my anxieties and how I've been having trouble sleeping! And so I bought some Sleep Tea from my favorite tea dealer The Herb Shoppe and I do a little experiment about whether it will actually help me sleep. I didn't have this list of ingredients while I was filming but I just called the Shoppe and they are so helpful. Here's what's in it. You can totally order it from them maybe not on the website but you can call the Portland store and get them to ship it to you. I love local indie businesses!
I notice how well a good night's sleep treats me the next day. How much self care there is in turning off the internet at a "reasonable hour", whatever that means. For me that means setting myself up to sleep for 7-8 hours. Feels like a luxury given how much I need/want to accomplish in a given day and how much play time I want to squeeze in there. But accepting my human limitations is one of my great spiritual lessons and, unfortunately, I know that means prioritizing sleep.
