Julie has struggled with insomnia for over 20 years, and her lifestyle, working as a teacher and owner of a German pretzel bakery, has made it challenging for her to focus on sleep.


Writing It Out

If I’m like most working parents, there are hundreds of things to remember. I hate feeling like this. Even if I don’t have my computer in front of me to solve half of these problems, it still keeps turning in my mind, and it will keep me from relaxing enough to fall asleep. Or if I wake up from a sleep, my mental wheels are already turning and I just pick up where I left off. It really contributes to this feeling of being unrested and stressed out. It’s a constant static in my brain.

So Dr. Dautovich suggested I take some time to journal. Start writing down my thoughts every evening, and let it come to an end. I’m going to give this a try in the next few weeks. Either I’m going to be filling up the pages all night long, or maybe I’ll just purge whatever is on my mind, and be left with nothing but sleep ahead of me.
