Ned: What’s your favorite Ned product?
- 1 dropperful of 1500mg Daily Blend in the early afternoon, to begin the process of unwinding from the day.
- 1 Naked Mellö packet in some warm water around 4pm (couple hours before bed) “insert calming thoughts here”!
- 1 dropperful of the Sleep Blend 30 minutes prior to bed. Without Sleep Blend, I tend to wake up in the middle of the night. Taking a serving 30 minutes before, or right before bed, generally keeps me asleep throughout the evening.
Ned: What do you need to do to feel like your best self every day?
Nichole: Movement! Dancing, yoga, intuitive movement, lifting, or walking in nature.
Ned: How do you like to start your day?
Nichole: Slowly unfurling like a flower. Then coffee.
Ned: How do you like to end your day?
Nichole: Legs up the wall pose for 15 minutes with my partner.
Ned: What’s your best tip for stress?
Nichole: Take a moment to stop everything and drop into the felt sense of the body. From there, decide what your body is needing . . . deep belly breaths, a walk in nature, a hug, or curling up in the fetal position in bed! It can all be helpful during those stressful moments. The key is to drop in and name that tune.
Ned: What’s your best tip for sleep?
Nichole: Curl up next to someone you love . . . and Sleep Blend!
