In this client episode, we discuss getting good sleep with John and Tammy.
John described his normal sleep pattern, noting he used to sleep six hours a night. Per Allan's recommendation, he added an hour to his nightly sleep over the past week. With that extra hour, he does not need a nap when he gets home from work. The sleep he is getting now has him feeling more rested.
A nap can be a useful tool as well. John said he is not avoiding the nap, rather he does not feel the need for it. So, he thinks his adding an extra hour of sleep is something he will continue doing. Because he sees real benefit.
If someone gets a good sleep pattern going and gets comfortable with it, his or her body performs better. This will help balance your hormones, improving brain chemistry and memory.
John says the setup in their room is completely perfect for sleep. They did not have to make any changes in the sleeping environment. That means they already had some good sleeping habits.
Tammy tends to sleep more than John. But there are some nights when wakes up sometimes after 2 – 3 hours. She finds it very frustrating that when she cannot fall back asleep. Using good sleep hygiene should keep these restless nights at a minimum.
Start a good sleep practice to ensure you get good nights sleep every night.
