Sleep Help (without sleeping pills)

Cognitive Behavior Therapy to improve your sleep for 5 years.

Staying asleep, often anxiety wakes us up, therefore, ‘learn to relax and relieve it in good ways’.

Be compassionate, don’t stay up, listen to an audiobook or meditate in low light, whatever works, then go back to bed when you feel sleepy.

Be your chronotype, if you suffer from sleep inertia, use temperature (have a hot drink in the morning or when you start your day), use exercise (have a 3 minute stretch routine in bed when you start your day).

Help yourself use sleep without short circuiting the natural cycle.

Learn about sleep and use good habits to support a good sleep habit.

  1. I used to have a terrible time going to sleep, but lately I’ve resorted to ‘earning my sleep’, and how I do that is by waking up early to chase my goals, such as writing and exercising. Then I do what needs to be done for the day, and by the time nighttime rolls around, I’ll be much more susceptible to sleep.

    Sometimes that doesn’t work though, and I end up feeling doubly tired, lol. Anyway, thanks for this post!
