More Sleep Talk

Kate shared how it is generally recommended to get 7-8 hours sleep a night, but she has found she works well on 6 hours. Sleep is an individual thing so it’s good to work out what you need and set your own routine.

I also asked Kate about what to do if you wake up in the night. She recommended trying meditation (a simple body scan can help) or pick up a book to read for a while before you feel ready to try to get to sleep.

If you’re really suffering with sleep and have tried different holistic methods, then do go to see a doctor to rule out anything underlying conditions that may be affecting your sleep.
