In this blog, I'm going to be sharing with you, how to overcome sleepless nights and some of the real, key steps to actually get rid of insomnia.
I have personally struggled with sleep for most of my life.
I had chronic insomnia for over 12 years.
What I'm going to be sharing with you in this blog are some of the critical things that definitely contributed to me now being able to fall asleep, super easily.
Watch the video below and let's dive in!
Insomnia is not permanent, you are not stuck like this forever.
Even though the pharmaceutical industry would love you to think that you're stuck like this, you're not.
You truly do have the power to change this.
The power to make sleeping become your new nighttime habit, instead of insomnia.
Therefore, you need to stop thinking about insomnia as something that is hard to get rid of.
The more that you perpetuate that paradigm for yourself, the harder it's going to be for you to actually get rid of insomnia.
And just like any other skill, it's going to take practice and repetition of the right behaviors.
The right ways of thinking, until sleep becomes easy for you again.
You have to think of insomnia as a behavior, and as a habit that your brain is doing on autopilot.
Just like any other habit, you have the power to break that habit.
Which means that you can learn the new skill for sleep, make sleeping become the new automatic response.
The new habit that your brain goes into every night, instead of insomnia.
On top of that, another super important piece to this is, you have to believe that you actually can fall asleep.
Because if you don't, then it's going to be really hard for you to actually end up overcoming sleepless nights.
The most common technique that you can practice to achieve this is meditation!
The reason why it is important to meditate consistently, is because when you meditate.
You're actually putting your brain into the same state as when you're falling asleep. This is super relevant.
Scientists have also proven that the brain can actually change and adapt over time.
When you practice something consistently, that actually leads to clear, physical changes in the brain.
Therefore, when you meditate consistently you're training your brain to calm down more easily, and that's definitely going to help you at night, when it's time to fall asleep.
One of the biggest misconceptions people have about insomnia is only focusing on the nighttime stuff.
When in actuality, it's not just what you do at night to fall asleep, it's how you approach your entire day.
What I do in the morning is I first meditate for ten minutes, and then I write down three things that I'm grateful for.
The reason why it is important to do this is that you're starting the day with positive intent, with a positive mindset.
It's really important to start your day that way, instead of being in reaction mode & being reactive to everything.
Instead of first thing checking your social media, scrolling through your emails, and getting caught up in work stuff first thing in the morning, it's important to take time to yourself!
All of those other things are easily stress inducing. It's not healthy to start your day stressed out, first thing in the morning.
Instead, enjoy your morning and create your own little morning routine that's just for you to enjoy, before you get swept up in everything that you need to do during the day.
One thing that's really helped me stick with a morning routine, is I ended up getting this journal which is called "The Five Minute Journal."
It's actually been a total game changer for me.
I really enjoy writing on it. Actually, I need to get a new one since I've filled this one up.
There's a page for each day of the week and you just write down three things that you're grateful for, what would make today great, and some daily positive affirmations.

This is important, you have to be super cognizant of what you're doing the last two hours of your day before you want to fall asleep.
This timeframe is critical because you want to make sure that you're not doing anything that's going to make your brain really engaged in.
Especially stuff that might make you worried, stressed, anxious, emotional.
Remember, you can fall asleep, I believe in you!
