Hi there, I just wanted to write a small note to check in with you all.
In my job as a sleep consultant I often talk about adjusting to transitions. Transitioning to big bed, to daylight savings, to going back to work… These last few months have been a whole new level of adjusting to changes around us. For me, not being able to meet my new clients and cuddle their babies have been almost as hard as not being able to see my own family at times.
Running a small business, with such a high level of personal attachment to my clients, I hope you have felt that I have been here for you when needed.
Like many of you, I have had to adjust my approach, from familiarising myself with Zoom so I could hold virtual mums group talks, to doing video interviews and connecting with some lovely professionals, which I’m hoping we can show you more of in the future too.
As always, many of my topics are focusing on self-care, how can we look after someone else if we have not made sure we have the energy to do so safely? I have stressed the importance of sleep, physical exercise and social connection as an important part of our wellbeing. Without these vital parts in our lives, the struggle becomes real… quickly.
If you’re wondering if the sleep habits you have or have not established are causing you more stress than necessary, you are welcome to contact me for a chat about how to get back on track. Please know that there is no shame in asking for help, even if it’s just so you can have a little rest yourself. Creating a good routine to get back on track can be vital for your wellbeing.
If you are worried about a friend who might be struggling more than what’s healthy, I have attached on of my blog posts about motherhood and depression, and please know that there is help to get.
You are always welcome to contact me, I love hearing from you.
