You are just not Sleeping Right!



Sleep issues???

Raise your hands if you too are facing sleeping issues.

Can I be straightforward here?
If you aren’t sleeping well then you have a poor relationship with yourself.

How so?
Your body is not confident that you are capable of keeping it alive if it’s not alert.

No matter how much categorisation happens, sleep if not proper is a clear indication you aren’t good with yourself. And you already know it. Now lets see what are the most known/reported/researched symptoms.


  • Insomnia – Difficulty staying asleep. Even if you doze off, you wake up all alert.
  • Sleep Apnea – a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts.
    -Loud snoring;
    -stop breathing while you are asleep and observed by someone else;
    -Gasping for breath while asleep;
    -Morning headache or groggy;
    -Hypersomnia – sleepy during the day;
    -Loss of focus/attention;
    -Irritability – because you aren’t calm.
  • Restless Legs Syndrome – is a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move the legs, usually because of an uncomfortable sensation. It typically happens in the evening or night-time hours when you’re sitting or lying down. Moving eases the unpleasant feeling temporarily.
  • REM (rapid eye movement) Sleep Behaviour Disorder – the most common, Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behaviour disorder is a sleep disorder in which you physically act out vivid, often unpleasant dreams with vocal sounds and sudden, often violent arm and leg movements during REM sleep — sometimes called dream-enacting behaviors.


  • Narcolepsy – is a chronic sleep disorder characterized by overwhelming daytime drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep. Also hallucinations.
  • Parasomnia
    – Sleepwalking
    – Night terrors
    – Nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder
    – Teeth grinding.Now that you know the symptoms and have identified with one lets see how can it be fixed.
    I would be so happy if you have identified with none and are sleeping well and for 5-6 hrs.
    When I say not good with yourself, I mean body & mind.What food are you consuming, how many workout hours a week? Do you drink? Smoke? Roll a joint? Do drugs? Engage with multiple sexual partners? Consume more non-Vegetarian than Vegetarian? Think self-provocative or self-critical thoughts? Always conscious of yourself? Constantly plotting, prodding, and calculating how to behave in front of others? A heart full of negating thoughts? A mind constantly wary of ways you are going to have to prove yourself?Everything that makes you anxious, is your way of not being good with yourself.
    If you are not STILL and PRESENT you are not good with yourself.
    Because you are not even with yourself. You are somewhere else in your head.
    Due to which you are constantly on a state of alert. As, in your body you are never home. This constant state of alert has got your nervous system deregulated. Weak. Jumpy. Sensitive. You need to rebuild it back to good health, regulated and resilient.And by avoiding tough situations, difficult conversations or escaping is not going to present to you a regulated nervous system. On the contrary facing them all, will get you a better nerve. Will make you confident, resilient and open. It will bring you home to yourself. It will let you sleep deeper & restful.As per research an average adult in their 8 hrs of sleep only gets about 30 minutes to 1.5 hrs of deep sleep. The remaining 6.5 hrs are wasted into falling into that deep restful zone. Hence an absolute waste. Those who are insomnia patient they have difficulty staying asleep. Not falling asleep. Even if they fall asleep, they would wake up because the body is stressed not restful.

    Stress is not bad. It is stress due to which our basic functionality happens. But when we hold onto the stress and do not let it flow naturally, it gets accumulated and build tension. Volumes of tension and stress in the body makes the nervous system weak, deregulated and sensitive. One touch on your already tired nerves and you are all defensive, protective and alert.

    The solution –

  • Yoga Asanas
  • Meditation
  • MindfulnessNot just figuratively. When you practice Yoga Asanas under the guidance of a proper instructor whose focus is on the Asana and posture correction and how long can you stay in a pose and not quick weight loss or how how quickly can you finish the asana, you will by experience get attuned to your body. Your internal systems will start to respond bringing you to a certain level of stillness. Your breath will still. Which in turn help you sit in dhyaana or meditation further aiding you to still your body and mind. Along with meditation also practice mindfulness to start coming back to the moment.This whole lifestyle will gradually get you to facing your stress with ease, grace and openness. You will not be dependent on comfort. Aiding you to sleeping deeper and more restful.If you need help to start you may join my free meditation program via Telegram app.
