A Better Nights Sleep: Useful Tip

A while back, I mentioned the benefits of a seizure diary to help monitor seizure activity and potential triggers in our day-to-day life. 

 

But I also have a second book… 

 

For me, sleep is really important, if I lose too much I know there will be trouble. I can’t afford to go to bed feeling tense with my head swimming with the stresses of the day and sometimes there are issues you can’t always talk about with others.

So a few years ago I began to offload my bad days to a notepad before I went to sleep. 

It worked wonders, and as the period of bad stress reduced in my life, I used it less and less.

Yes, there are times I have had to pick it up again, but that’s life, everyone has stress from time to time. 

I never realised how I depended on it, until recently, when I was thrown into a horrific week and I discovered myself searching for it before I went to sleep. 

It’s my lifeline for when things are tough, and my saviour for a better night’s sleep, you scribble it all down and you feel as though a weight has been lifted. 

I would recommend it to anyone – especially someone with epilepsy who needs their sleep like me!

(Tip – keep the book in a secret place, so you can pour your heart out. I’ve done such a good job of hiding mine I’ve yet to find it! )

 

Thanks for reading!

Becky 🙂
