☹️If you're a bad sleeper the chances are you dread going to sleep.
Even when you do drop off you're probably wide awake again after a couple of hours. Stuck, going over your 'to do' list, watching the clock, counting how many hours sleep you have or haven't had and feeling frustrated!
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
😫Well, in a nutshell, it means my love that you have a lot going on and your brain can't keep up. It thinks you're under threat and has officially wheeled out the health and safety officer to keep you on hyper alert so you stay alive. 🤡
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
👊🏻Take action! I'm always surprised at a number of people who have just accepted they are a bad sleeper. YOU CAN CHANGE IT so decide that this is non-negotiable. Sleep is happening! At the end of the day, it's as important for your body as drinking so don't ignore it!
Then follow these 3 steps:
1. Start to take action on your stress. Set aside a time every day at least an hour before bed to look at all of your worries and do items. What options do you have? What action could you take and when? Planning to deal with all the 'stuff' removes the pressure from your mind.
2. Detox ! Drinking alcohol and caffeine has a huge impact on your sleep. Cut out alcohol for a while whilst you get this sorted. ( remember the this is a non-negotiable part from earlier?) Ditch caffeine after 2 pm for obvious reasons, this alone will have a big impact. If you have a lot of sugar in your diet, reducing that will also help.
3. Detox your screen time. Ever find yourself still scrolling through Facebook just before lights out? And maybe after....🙄Give yourself an hour before bed that is for total relaxation. No screens, just relaxing activities such as a shower and reading a nice novel.
( cut back on crime thrillers for the time being! 😜 )This gives your body the signal that you are slowing down ready for sleep.
If you take nothing else from the post just remember - sleep is vital so take action today!
