Who is the group for?

This group is for individuals suffering from chronic sleeplessness and who want to understand it better. We will also talk about daily stressors that contribute to sleeplessness. It is also for people who want to learn more about it as well as want help dealing with it.

What will we talk about?

• What’s important -Your sleep quality vs quantity
• Thoughts and feelings about sleep to decrease any sleep-related anxiety
• Chronic stress and big life events affecting your sleep
• Is lack of sleep affecting your mood and behavior?
• What is sleep hygiene and how can we maintain it
• Do your eating and lifestyle habits impact your sleep ?
• How to get myself to sleep: different methods like cognitive restructuring, stimulus control, and emotional processing

  • I'm so grateful that there was a conversation beyond sleeping teas, sleep hygiene and melatonin. No fake insomniacs and real understanding for a change.
