SLEEP is Too Important to Ignore


Welcome to Episode 44 of the Autism Parenting Secrets. 


In this episode, Cass and Len address the importance of Self-Care.  

You cannot show up as your best-self to help your child if you’re running on fumes.  

Caring for yourself is essential.  If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for your child!

There are so many ways a parent can care for themselves and none of them are selfish.  

Diet and Exercise are two key areas of Self-Care that everyone knows about.  They ARE important.  

But Sleep is something that gets less attention and may be the most important of all.

If you think you can get away with less sleep, think again.

But even more important than how long you sleep is the quality of your sleep.

The good news is you can take actions today that will immediately improve the quality of your sleep.

Tune in now to learn how!
