    Hi friends
    Would love any advice!! I had a severe insomnia episode 20 some years ago during challenging times as school- couldn’t fall asleep at all for weeks. With shifting my life (more yoga, school ending) it passed. Now I am in a cycle again- been going on for 5 weeks. I have seen an acupuncturist and medical doc – tried lots of herbals and meds. I still have a hard time falling asleep. When I do sleep (with a glass of wine, supplements or a med, or after a meditation ) I am able to sleep for a few hours. These providers who don’t think i conditioned insomnia since I can stay relaxed in bed, even when I am up. I listen to mantras and meditations and kinda stay in a trance all night if I don’t sleep. The idea of getting out of bed (which I tried for a night and was miserable that night and next day) seems counterintuitive. I don’t want this to become chronic so would love some feedback! I don’t fall asleep easily on the couch or another bed and then stay awake in mine. I am generally pretty calm all night even if am awake most of the night…
    Please help💕🙏🏽💕

    Hello!
    Are you just afraid of poor sleep? Afraid that it will get worse and you lose whatever little sleep you now have?

    Then maybe this is what this is all about. Just a four letter word called FEAR. It is enough to keep people up for nights and they can go on suffering like this for decades because they try so hard to escape from it. But the fact is poor sleep is normal for everyone once in a while! Modify your response to stop avoiding it anymore and start kinda expecting it to happen every night like welcoming an old friend, the fact is that sleep is never controlled by anyone or anything, your body just makes it happen all by itself. Therefore worrying about it is completely futile and unnecessary.

    Just keeping to a regular bedtime schedule is all you need and your body will take care of everything else. Just trust your own body for once! Stop trying so hard and doing so many things just to sleep! Let it happen all by itself. Your mindset and attitude, particularly towards bad nights will be key to your recovery. Good night and I wish you achieve your goals soon.
