A compassionate approach to poor sleep during the perimenopause

Many women going through the perimenopause (or menopausal transition) experience disturbed sleep. It’s one, if not the, core symptom of this period. According to research, up to 60% of menopausal women suffer from poor sleep – which also has a knock-on effect on their family, work and social lives. 

Adopting a compassionate attitude, i.e. taking a moment to respectfully observe yourself struggling with the aim to support yourself, can help to alleviate poor sleep and its daytime consequences.

Have you tried sleeping pills to banish your insomnia? Many of us have, with mixed results. One of my biggest issues with traditional sleeping pills is the fact a regular user will quickly build a tolerance.That then means you need to up your dose, and THAT is the time for concern about the side effects. Because the more you take, the higher the risk you’ll experience them.There is a place for sleeping pills, but that is not the way I work long-term.I work with my clients to discover the root of their poor sleep and approach it with small but powerful changes to improve lifestyle and therefore experience with sleep.
