When you’re exhausted but you can’t fall asleep – you’re just lying awake in the middle of the night staring at the ceiling or scrolling through social media – it’s usually because you’re unknowingly doing some specific things throughout the day that prevent you from winding down.
This is a big problem, because from the time you wake up, your whole body feels tired from the lack of sleep.
Your brain might even feel “foggy” where it’s hard to focus and get words out, so your day just seems to drag on…
And while it’s true that some people do have real sleep disorders, we’ve found that the majority of people who don’t sleep well are simply not aware of the essential habits that are necessary for optimal sleep, and this is a routine that actually starts from the moment you wake up.
Some of these important sleep habits seem straightforward once you learn about them, but they probably have not occurred to you yet.
For example, what you eat – and more importantly – WHEN you eat can set you up for sleep success or sleep failure.
Also, the most subtle factors like how your bedroom is decorated, where you keep your cell phone, and certain smells in your home can send you off to dreamland or keep you “tired but wired.”
The good news is that, when you discover how to honor your natural rhythms, you can easily overcome sleep problems like insomnia so you can reclaim a healthy balance in life.
If you’re having a hard time falling asleep (or even if you’re sleeping, but you wake up groggy and unrefreshed in the morning), we offer our 8-week Body Bliss program to help with this.
In this program, we start by giving you the tried-and-true methods we’ve used with our real-life patients – from burnt-out business owners to busy working moms and shift workers – to help them get physically and emotionally revitalized.
Then we go DEEPER and help you troubleshoot your own sleep patterns so that you can select the tools and habits that are best suited for your body and daily schedule.
These are practical and accessible steps that help you quiet your “monkey mind,” overcome insomnia, and establish a restful routine.
With these methods, it’s possible to fall asleep effortlessly, sleep through the night, and wake up feeling refreshed.
