You don't need permission to sleep

I definitely can’t give it to you.

But you’ll be amazed at what happens when find it within yourself.

If you’re anything like me, when you became a mom your own sleep went straight to last on your priority list. 

If you’re like so many other moms I’ve talked to, you probably believe if you allow yourself to sleep, nap or even just rest, you’re taking time or attention away from your family. That things just don’t get done when you’re asleep or that you have to earn it somehow. 

Thinking like this left me with insomnia for years.

So often I hear, “But what if someone needs me when I’m sleeping?”

Early on, you were probably given the insidious advice to “sleep when the baby’s sleeping”.

But your baby is a big kid now. Maybe even fully grown.

It’s time to give yourself permission to sleep when you’re sleepy.

The world won’t fall apart while you rest. In fact, if you learn to get better quality sleep, you’ll be much better able to handle whatever life hands you when you’re awake.

We spend 1/3 of our lives asleep! Wouldn’t it be great to look forward to that instead of dreading bedtime every night?

To look at sleep as a reward for a day well-spent instead of a punishment to be endured?

It’s possible. 

I know because I suffered with insomnia on and off for decades.

I thought good sleep was impossible for me too.

But it’s not. I now fall asleep most nights a few minutes after my head hits the pillow. 

If I can do it, so can you. 

You can learn to sleep better, just like you learned the habits that are part of your insomnia routine right now.

In April, 2021, I launched a membership community for group sleep coaching that also includes lots of additional tools to help you maintain your good sleep once you start seeing success.

And I would love to see you in the program with us!
