4 Steps to STOP Being
the Worst Sleeper in the World

When I was ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I felt like I was never really awake, and never really asleep! I was fighting through a veil of fog, 24 hours a day. But I am now recovered and thriving. My energy is strong and I have mastered some key sleep skills.

Step 1 : Love Your Sleep Environment

  • Tidy up your bedroom so it is a pleasant place to be.
  • Wear an eye mask.
  • Turn down your bedroom thermostat just a little for a cooler atmosphere.
  • Love your pillow and your partner.

Step 2: Refresh Your Thinking about Sleep

  • Consider your sleep time as sacred and nurturing, not another stressful problem.
  • Enjoy your peaceful awake moments during the night.
  • Know that even small improvements in sleep length and quality will have a noticeable impact on your health.

Step 3: Consider Some Lifestyle Adjustments

  • It’s best to stop consuming alcohol by 8 PM.
  • Add in two or three more servings of veggies every day.
  • Find time for a spiritual practice that calms you.

Step 4: Learn 3 Skills to Get to Sleep and Stay Asleep

  • Do a series of deep breaths once you are comfortably in bed. Feel your body tension soften.
  • Scan your body slowly and methodically, just with an easy awareness, and notice each muscle group sink into the bed. Ahhh!

Helping employees and patients sleep better.
