Wake up to sleep!

If you snooze, you lose – right?

Wrong!! According to The Sleep Council at least, whose website is all about the importance of a good night’s kip and how it not only makes you healthier and happier but can even add years to your life…

A key element of course is having the right bed and, with next Sunday just over a week into National Bed Month, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that’s precisely what June and guest Rosalyn Palmer will be chatting about in the second hour of the show.

Ros will be on the phone to the studio from just after 11.10am to share some of her own thoughts and expert advice about good sleeping habits, while June will be offering up a few statistics she’s come across recently…

Did you know, for example, that Cambridge, Brighton and Manchester top the list of the worst places in the UK to get a good night’s sleep?

Or that nodding off in your socks can increase the amount of REM sleep you get through the night, helping you remember things and process your emotions?!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online from 10am to 12 noon for all this and more from June and Ros…

Sit back and relax – but whatever you do, don’t doze off or you’ll miss your favourite Sunday morning show, Girls Around Town!

Just take ten – again!

It wouldn’t be Sunday without Girls Around Town, would it?

And it wouldn’t be Girls Around Town without all the great guests who join June every weekend to share their stories, both personal and professional…

So if you’re wondering who’s up next, the good news is it’s none other than the inimitable Cathie Babbington, who’ll be on the phone to the studio just after 11.10am to do precisely that.

She’ll have one or two more top tips from her book 10 Minutes A Day With Coach Cath, designed to make it simple, easy and stress-free to use social media to raise the profile of any business using any platform in – yes, you guessed it! – just 10 minutes a day!

Fortunately Cathie and June will have a bit longer than that for their on air chat so there’ll be time too for her to offer up a few of the practical work from home ideas highlighted in her latest newsletter.

Whether it’s baking or child care, becoming an Airbnb host or a virtual assistant – or even offering a mobile laundry service – she’s got plenty of suggestions, some of them pretty obvious and easy to start straight away, others you might not have thought about that might be just what you need to find your mojo again.

And that’s not all…

Talking to June a few days ago, she dropped a hint about a brand new venture of her own, which just goes to show that she practices what she preaches!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online to find out whether some of her suggestions might work for you.

And exactly what it is that Cathie herself will be up to next!

A few simple steps to help change your eating habits for the better

How difficult has it been sticking to healthy eating habits this past year?

However good you may usually be, have snacks and sweets become the norm rather than the exception during lockdowns?

There’s nothing wrong with the occasional treat of course – with Easter just a few weeks away, a chocolate egg (or two!) won’t undo all your good work – but frequent comfort eating can all too easily become a slippery slope…

Help is at hand though, whether it’s a constant struggle for you or just one more problem you’re facing right now, thanks to June‘s guest on Girls Around Town this weekend!

On the phone to the studio in the second hour of the show, wellness expert Lesley Butlin will sharing some of her top hints and tips to get you back on the right track, from the kind of things you need to avoid doing to some of the things you can do to stop yourself giving in to unhealthy habits.

If you’re eating more than you want to or going to the fridge because you don’t know what else to do, make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online just after 11.20am on Sunday to hear what Lesley has to say about how to manage your emotions more successfully…

And how, by doing so, you can change your eating habits for the better!
