Between the Sheets: Naomi Gora

Between the Sheets: Naomi Gora


Some of the best things in life happen Between the Sheets... and that includes good conversation, so each month we're asking you to share what makes you Sleep, Feel and Live Good.

This week's chat is with Naomi from Hobart, Tasmania.  A designer and storyteller, she runs her own business at Naomi Gora while being supermum to her little boy.  An adventurer at heart, she's never far from a ski slope or a bush track.

Where's the most memorable place you've woken up? 
In a snow cave on Cradle Mountain in Tasmania. It was incredible. And cold. I went on a wilderness search and rescue course with a group of paramedics when I was twenty one. We had to throw ourselves down snowy mountains and stop ourselves with ice axes. In hindsight I was way out of my depth in terms of experience and I was terrified most of the time but it's still one of the best things I've ever done in my life. Ever.

Describe the best sleep you've ever had...
You know when you're really sick and you're trying to tough it out and then you finally take some cold and flu tablets because you haven't slept for three days? That floaty sleep is just divine.

What's the first thing you do when you open your eyes in the morning?
Oh man, I'm ashamed to say it's checking my emails... but it's a bad practice, really bad so I've just started waking up at 5:30am before my four year old and doing something called The 6 Phase Meditation on an app called Omvana. It's a much better way to start the day!

What's the last thing you do before you go to sleep?
Probably take my PJs off... Because having a nightmare that you're being strangled by an octopus only to wake up and realise you're just twisted up in your PJs is not conducive to a good night's sleep.

What's the one thing you've always secretly wanted to do but life just sort of keeps getting in the way?
Write a book. I have years worth of notes and unfinished chapters. I just have to put it all together...I really really need to do that! Really!

If you could choose anywhere in the world to sleep, where would it be?
Ooh ooh... a glass igloo in Lapland.
