Hi, I’m Sonia and I’m a fertility coach with Fertilligence.
And today is Q&A Mondays!
In these series, I am answering YOUR questions about all things fertility — everything from lifestyle hacks to boost fertility to handling things when pregnancy DOESN’T happen so fast.
If you have questions, be sure to post your questions in the comments below, and I’ll answer as many as I can in future videos.
So, onto today’s question: With a full time job, how can you sneak in the sleep you need during infertility?
This is a great question and it makes me so happy that you’re asking about Sleep.
As we explain in the Fertilligence App and in our coaching sessions with clients,
Sleep is key for hormonal balance.
Not getting enough sleep may disrupt menstrual cycles and ovulation in women, and lead to reduced sperm quality and concentration in men.
Insufficient sleep is also linked to a number of other fertility-disrupting lifestyle factors,
such as weight gain, caffeine overuse, high stress levels, and tension with your partner, friends, family andco-workers.
So, at Fertilligence, we encourage you to aim for 7-8 hours of restorative, uninterrupted sleep every night.
Of course,this is easier said than done, right? Infact, according to the National Sleep Foundation, 70% of Americans don’t get enough sleep.
is it that you’re going to bed too late?
Or, once you’re in bed, do you take forever to fall asleep?
Or, do you fall asleep easily but you wake up several times during the night?
Once you’ve identified your barriers, let’s address them with practical tips:
relax before going to bed is to set aside 5 minutes to practice some deep breathing. This can be incredibly transformational.
So this is my answer to today’s question. Now I’d love to hear back from you guys: how do you sneak in some restorative sleep when you’re super busy? Please share so we can all learn from each other!
I’ll see you next Monday! Remember: write your questions in the comments below and I’ll answer as many as I can.
Have a wonderful week, bye!
