Managing Sleep & Stress with EverlyWell
Confession time. I truly love working out and eating well. Heck, it’s what lead me to leave over a decade in corporate America to become a certified health coach and personal trainer. It’s the glue that keeps me together and helps me to keep up with a very busy lifestyle. But on the flip side of the coin, two things I do not manage all that well are stress or my sleep. Try as I might sometimes I let the big and small things get to me. I think this photo by my computer might just say it all…
Or I’ll say to Scott that I’m going to get a certain amount of sleep per night and find myself in the shower at 11PM when I was supposed to be in bed (according to my schedule) around 10PM. Oops!
What keeps me up? The usual things that most of us struggle with night after night. Cleaning up from making dinner, finishing up work, folding laundry and just a general sense of moving more slowly because I’m tired. It’s that’s grind we all do our best to handle.
Naturally I was very excited to be selected for this opportunity to partner with Fit Approach and EverlyWell to try their convenient at home testing kit. I only like to endorse products where I truly believe in the value. EverlyWell is an amazing company because they are making more health testing and knowledge available at a price point that makes it more affordable than traditional in-office testing.
The Testing Kit
I ordered the sleep and stress kit (retails at $249) and it is designed for those who struggle with sleep or stress and feel that it might be affecting them physically due to hormonal imbalances.

The Testing Process
I shared that when I completed the food sensitivity test it was a little difficult to psyche myself initially to have to draw my own blood. What can I say – I’m a wimp!
The sleep and stress test is measured through urine samples with four collections during the day – upon waking up, 2 hours later, before my evening meal and before bed. So I had to be hyper vigilant to remember those testing times because I wanted to ensure I got the most accurate results possible.
In the Mail
Once my package was sealed, I simply dropped it off to be mailed since the package provided included a pre-paid label.
I can’t wait to hear about my results! I should be getting an email any day with that information and I’ll be posting the discoveries made and my thoughts here too.
Maybe I’ll be able to sleep more soundly with a little more info on my side! The more we know the better we are equipped to manage anything.
