For me, this was gradual. I slowly went from 6 or 7 hours a night to maybe 1 if I was lucky. I have since learned to practice better sleep hygiene, as the Docs call it. Its simply a routine that gets your body and mind ready for sleep. I allow myself an hour every evening before bed for journal writing and papercrafting.
There are no set plans or ideas. I just simply reflect on my day and plan to have a better day tomorrow. Write down thoughts and ways I can improve. It keeps me on track and lessens my night time anxiety.
Over the next few weeks I will share some of my creations as well as some tools that has worked for me.
