Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan, Silentnight's Sleep Expert
It wasn’t until my 30s that I realised just how badly I slept. I was always tired but wired, I found it really difficult to switch off and constantly woke up feeling as if I had been awake half the night. Eventually I reached a point where I crashed. My breakthrough came when I went to a yoga workshop run by a doctor who talked about the difference between sleep and rest. After that I took up yoga and meditation. It turned it around for me and I’ve been doing it every day since. It’s about self-care – when you make the connection between the things you do every day and the way you sleep, that becomes powerful.
