Sleep can be a real challenge at times. I know I struggle with falling and staying asleep because of my health conditions. Some nights I’ll be up scrolling through apps on my phone until eventually, I fall asleep. Other nights, I’ll be able to fall asleep instantly, but toss and turn so much that I wake up the next morning feeling as though I just ran a marathon.
For folks who live with insomnia, whether it’s a symptom of depression or the result of dealing with chronic pain (or something else entirely), sleep is a constant battle you might feel like you’re always losing. There are plenty of tricks you can try to fall asleep, such as limiting your screen time before bed or using a weighted blanket, but sometimes sleep just doesn’t come easily or at all — and that’s OK. We don’t want you wandering around sleep-deprived, but we understand that sometimes it’s just a challenge to get some shut-eye.
