Sleep

Our cells repair themselves whilst we are sleeping.  If we are not getting sufficient good quality sleep it is difficult, if not impossible, to heal ourselves.  Therefore improving sleep is a fundamental step in recovery from CFS/ME

One of the biggest problems for most CFS/ME sufferers is disturbed sleep. I’ve had my fair share of that.  For many months I tried all kinds of things to help with my sleep. Most of them helped a small amount, and for that reason I list them here, however my main improvements in sleep came when I began treating my adrenal fatigue.

  • meditation
  • good sleep hygiene, there is lots of information available on the web about this.  Here’s a particularly detailed explanation. Obviously advice about exercising should not be followed by CFS/ME sufferers.
  • EFT – I used to tap along to this video 
  • herbal sleep remedies – Dr Stuart’s valerian tea is great
  • writing a journal before bed to get my thoughts out of my head
  • Using relaxation apps – I particularly like Sleep Easily by Shazzie, which is available for andriod and iphones.
  • I have another app on my phone (automat it) which automatically puts my phone in airplane mode at 10pm each night so that I do not get disturbed my incoming texts/emails/calls.
  • I love these sleepphones and use them during the day for guided meditation and at night to listen to apps/music designed to aid sleep.
