As someone who has experienced the vicious cycle of insomnia, I know one thing for sure: insomnia sucks. It seems to dominate our lives, making sleep our number one priority. We constantly think about sleep, worry about it, and do our best to solve this issue, only to find ourselves trapped in a loop of thoughts and fears… still unable to sleep.
When I talk about insomnia, I’m referring to sleep anxiety, the fear of sleeplessness, and the fear of wakefulness.
Insomnia is not just about the act of sleeping; it encompasses how we think, feel, and behave in relation to sleep and wakefulness. In other words, our relationship with sleep creates a self-perpetuating pattern of insomnia. And when we break free from that pattern, we find ourselves more at peace… and that’s when we start experiencing sleep as we have always known it.
It’s not a quick fix; it’s a bumpy journey. However, the journey is completely worth it.
How I can support you
I publish a lot of free content where I share my best insights, learnings and personal experience with insomnia. Many people benefit from these resources alone.
If you need extra support, encouragement, or simply someone to talk to, you can consider individual mentoring calls.
