032: 5 Practical Tips for Busy Mums to Get More Sleep

Let me sleep, for when I wake I will move mountains

From the last weeks of our first pregnancy, the sleep deficit begins. And so to, a taste of things to come. 

For me, that was over seven years ago. And as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I haven’t had a full eight hours since. 

Self inflicted admittedly. I’m not pregnant, don’t have a newborn and my kids sleep like angels. 

But oh! That precious golden time once the kids are in bed. The day is done, the jobs are finished (at least for now) and the house is quiet. 

ME TIME!!! Yippee 

Why would I want to give that up to go to bed?

But how well is the lack of Zzzzzz’s serving me? 

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about sleep, how a lack of sleep affects our mothering, and what we can do about it.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to consider how much quality sleep you’re getting and what steps you can take to get a little more.
I’m in this challenge right alongside you, because I battle it too. Its difficult I know because that pocket of ‘me’ time is so elusive.
But if you can conquer it, your awake time will be far more productive, and you’ll also notice that you’re better able to move mountains when you’re fully rested. So don’t see sleep as time wasted.

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. How many hours sleep do you get a night? Is it enough or do you feel tired during the day? How can you claw back a bit more time for sleep?

I’m here to spur you on and help you as much as possible

Hope you enjoy the show.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!
