I’ve always had some phases of insomnia since I was a teenager. Since I became pregnant and then a mum a few years ago, I can’t sleep more than 3 hours and don’t have the time during the day to catch up with sleep like I used to. Since a few months I’m taking some sleeping pills as I reached a point of exhaustion where I had to be on sick leave from work. How can I sleep 7 hours in row without taking any pills? 🙂
Welcome to the forum, Nan. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do to make you sleep seven hours since we can’t control how long we sleep for — sleep works autonomously and when we try to get involved, our sleep tends to take a turn for the worse!
With that being said, there are things you can do to improve your sleep. Can you tell us a bit more about your current sleep pattern? When do you go to bed at night and when do you get out of bed to start your day in the morning? Do you feel as though you average three hours of sleep on a typical night?
