Bereavement & Sleep

Bereavement & Sleep

Healing from our loss is profoundly hard work and takes its toll on our physical, emotional and mental health; good sleep is vital to help with this.
Sleep is vital. When we are experiencing huge amounts of emotion this can disrupt our sleep.

There are few helpful hints regarding sleep to help you get some good quality rest:

* Keep a regular bedtime and get up time.

* Ensure you have some exercise during the day as this will help you drop off more easily

* Avoid caffeine and alcohol. Although this may feel like it doesn’t affect us, it prevents us having good quality sleep.

* Often a bath with essential oils or Epsom salts can help us unwind nearer bedtime.

* Limit use of screens at bedtime. We need at least 2 hours after using a tablet or mobile phone to adapt enough to go to sleep.

Please remember, we are here for you.
