Overcome the Fear of Falling Asleep | GR112

Update: 2021-09-16


Sleep comes to us automatically – like the next breath, or the next heart-beat. The question is – what are we doing to welcome it? Three aspects that influence your sleep are your environment, your body and of course your mind.

In order to make sleeping a welcomed task we have to first start thinking about it differently. As in not being something you have to get to or do or a task that needs to be mastered but rather like the French writer Jules Verne says – see sleep as a friend!

Join me on this episode of Get Real today as I address the difficulties many of us face when it comes to sleep and what we can do to avoid chasing it but instead allow sleep to approach us.
