There is no such thing as 'quick', 'easy' and 'effortless' but...

Of course, you can also learn those practical ways that you can overcome your sleep problems and insomnia too.

Since 2014, I have published many articles and videos to help you get to know your sleep better and overcome sleep problems and even insomnia. Some of the videos are recorded at previous talks or simply answering a question from my audience on a particular topic.

On this page, you will find the most recently published resource.

How to change your evening routine to fall asleep easily | Sleep Coach Q&A

 

How to change your evening routine to help you fall asleep easily | Sleep Coach Q&A

It's always best to watch the entire video so I can walk you through the topic of today’s video through the step-by-step approach I use in my sleep coaching practice helping clients overcome their long-term insomnia and sleep problems.

But here are some chapters for you:

00:00 Introduction to how to change your evening routine if you're a thinker type

01:46 Teaching Sleep Skills for Life 

02:57 How to start with designing an evening routine that actually works

04:06 How to teach your body and mind to separate from the daytime

08:11 What should you fill my evening routine with?

09:28 Dealing with raised emotions too later at night

10:28 Conclusions to changing your evening routine to really help you fall asleep easier

In today’s video I’ll share with you my answer to a question that came up during the live sleep coaching session in the Sleep Skills for Life Programme.

In particular we’ll talk about how to change the your preparation for bed or evening routine so that it can support you better, especially if you’re a ‘thinker’ type. I can certainly relate to being a thinker type, and it used to really stop me being able to fall asleep in an easier way. 

The evening routine for thinker types naturally has to be tailored to the person, so there is no one way of doing this really. When I work with a client in my sleep coaching practice, we really work on tailoring the things to the person so it can really work with who they are and the types of challenges they have with their sleep. 

My invitation to you is to also approach this in a personalised way.

There is no point putting in place a long list of things if they don’t help you to practically create physical, emotional and mental relaxation.

I often get asked about how to calm the mind down to sleep, and today’s video will help you to start thinking about it in a different way. Calming the mind down and creating an effective evening routine for insomnia is completely possible but so many people make bedtime routine mistakes that can be easily avoided. 

Learning how to fall asleep easier at night will depend on some of the physical, emotional and mental dynamics that are showing up for you. Remember that every one of us are different, therefore need different things to support us. And sleep is no exception to this either. 

So when you look at your ideal evening routine for insomnia problems, start with really looking at what you need as a human being rather than throwing tools and techniques at the problem. Trying and trying is never going to replace really getting to know what you need to relax physically, mentally and emotionally.

Please also bear in mind that overcoming insomnia and sleep problems that have been around for longer time is a bit more complex, but even in those cases, once you find what is really appropriate for your situation, the results will follow consistently.

Of course, if you have any question about the things I mentioned in this video, feel free to reach out.
