Ahhh     Sleep.


If you are not sleeping well over a sustained period it is important to really take stock. Try out some of my tips from Sleep – you know you want it Part 1. You might need to work on it for a while so don’t be disheartened if you don’t get immediate results.

Sleep is an important part of self care, and self care is important to keeping you happy and healthy. Please get this - Self care is really important – due to the whole iceberg factor! See Sleep (and Icebergs) Part 2


The answer to helping you solve your sleep issues.

Sometimes, though, you go looking for special remedies or quick fixes to sleep and other health issues. You want to pop a pill, listen to a pod cast and have your sleep issues solved.

What you really need is to listen to yourself. You know about you, and when you tune in you might be surprised at what answers come up.

Give yourself some time each day to reflect. Ask yourself what it is you need to change. Yep, you would be surprised how much you already know the answers to things when you take the time to listen.


Steps for tuning in to yourself.

1/ Find a quiet space and time.

2/ Sit comfortably either on the floor or on a chair – keeping your spine aligned.

3/ Take three slow and deep inhalations and exhalations.

4/ Focus on your breathing, you might like to say to yourself “breathing in, breathing out…”

5/ In your mind ask your question of yourself , for example “ what do I need to change in order to get a better nights sleep?” don’t expect an answer, let it go and trust that an answer will come when you are ready.

6/ return your awareness to your breathing.

7/ when your mind wanders, notice that and bring your awareness back to your breathing.

8/ Start with 5 minutes and increase this to 10 or 20 minutes as you get used to it.

9/ before you finish up return to your question and see if an answer comes.

10/If it is morning you may like to set an intention for the day, if it is evening set an intention for a good nights sleep!



Happy Sleeping
