1 Week to Better Sleep
Learn to master sleep when anxiety keeps you up!
Me: just let me sleep
Anxiety: Ha, no! Let’s stay awake and remember every bad decision we made, every wrong thing we said, and everything that could go wrong!
Does this sound familiar?
- Is your brain working overtime at night?
- Does your mind replay every bad decision you made or every wrong thing you may have said?
- Do you hate going to bed because you are afraid of being left with your thoughts?
- Do you wake up after a regular night of sleep still feeling exhausted?
- Does your mind reflect upon everything that is scary about waking up tomorrow?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
What if I told you that worry & stress
don’t have to be part of your bedtime routine?
That you can help your mind feel safe and calm
as it's releasing control and drifting off to sleep?
Did you know that sleep deprivation is both a cause and consequence of anxiety?
While we sleep our bodies work really hard to repair and cleanse itself so we are ready to take on the challenges of the day ahead. I don't know about you but I know that when I don’t get enough sleep I am not my best self. I am usually less patient, struggle to focus and be motivated, and less mentally strong, making it harder to manage my worries, fears, and emotions.
It doesn't have to be this way... you can wake up feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, calm, and with the strength and energy you need to take on life.
Did you know that sleep has so many amazing benefits that can really affect our wellbeing? Research shows that some of the best benefits of a good night's sleep include:
Increase your energy
Increase your ability to focus and make decisions
Reduce your stress response
Improve your memory
Enhance your creativity
Improve your relationships
Enhance your cognitive performance
Help control your weight
I hope you read those benefits and think… sign me up! I want all of those sleep benefits to be a part of my daily life! I want to find ways to live my best life - and love it!

If this is resonating with you and you are ready to choose you - ready to put yourself first… This challenge is for you!
There is a term we use in social work called 'readiness for change'. People aren't going to make the changes they need to until they are at a place where they are ready to do the hard work and commit to the process. There are so many things that affect a person's readiness for change. If this is you and you aren't sure your ready to commit - that's ok. Take the time you need and come back when your ready. I don't want you to participate when your not ready and feel frustrated that your not getting the results you need. But, if you are ready to participate, ready to work hard, and are committed to seeing the challenge through, then please click enroll below because we want you to journey with us!
I'm Sarah. Founder of Mentally Healthy Me. A couple of the hats (roles) that I wear throughout a day are wife, mother, social worker, and blogger. I have over 10 years of social work experience with a specialization in mental health, and although I don't engage in a client-therapist relationship with my blogging friends, I believe this knowledge and experience has given me much insight, tools, and resources to pass along to you. On a deeper level… 1 in 3 people struggle with mental illness. I became one of those people after being greatly affected by postpartum anxiety. This is where my passion stems from. This personal experience is why I show up online to journey with others who are struggling with their mental health - why I'm here to journey with you!
