Our sleeping habits can be complex and are usually influenced by a myriad of lifestyle factors, such as our diets, water intake, caffeine levels, exercise (or lack thereof), and, of course, stress. So, why is sleep so important, and how can we get better at it?
Trouble sleeping? Maybe we’ve procrastinated for too long and it’s catching up with us and so we have to burn the midnight oil and make a sprint of our writing. Maybe we’ve been going through some emotional hurdles during lockdown and have been finding it difficult to sleep. Maybe you’ve taken some time out of your usual writing schedule to help a friend out. Maybe the imposter syndrome has gotten a strong grip on us and we’re feeling stuck with our writing.
I have previously written about my struggle to easily and readily fall asleep. I've recently found something that has given me some relief.
