Getting to the Roots of Sleeplessness: A Holistic Approach to Sleep

Sleep is a fundamental pillar of our health and well-being, yet in today's fast-paced world, it's often neglected or disrupted. Sleep can be especially disruptive for women who hold many responsibilities as stay-at-home mothers and working mothers.

Understanding that sleep is not just a physical necessity but also a deeply psychological and emotional one. It's not just about the number of hours you spend in bed; it's about the quality of those hours and how they affect your waking life. By addressing sleep from a holistic perspective, there is a path to improve not just the quantity but also the depth of restful sleep. The quality of sleeping hours can affect your waking life. 

One way of getting better sleep is to learn to recognise the interconnectedness of the body and mind. Stress, anxiety, wandering thoughts, and other mental health issues can significantly impact sleep quality. This can lead to a vicious cycle of poor sleep and worsen the underlying health issue that you may not be aware of. By addressing these underlying issues through mindfulness practices, relaxation techniques, and cognitive behavioural therapy, you can learn to break this unhealthy cycle and promote better sleep. 

Getting to the root of how our mind affects sleep is not the only way to improve sleep quality. The environment is also important. Creating a sleep-friendly surrounding free of distractions and conducive to relaxation can help. Similarly, establishing a regular sleep routine with regular bedtimes and wake-up times can help improve your body’s internal clock.

Besides the mind and the environment, the body is also a key to better rest. Diet and exercise are equally important to promote better sleep. You can also consider taking sleep-promoting nutrients such as magnesium and tryptophan. Additionally, regular physical activities can help you regulate your sleep cycles and reduce the risk of sleep disorders. 

Recognising the profound impact sleep has on the body and mind, Ritmo Music Studio is partnering with Sleep Body Mind for International Women’s Day. Helen Peckman, Sleep Body Mind’s health coach specialising in women’s wellness and sleep has personally experienced the detrimental effects of sleep and with her years of experimentation and learning from various methodologies, she hopes to share her knowledge with participants in the sleep workshop held on Ritmo Music Studio on 10 March 2024.
