Does anybody have any tips for staying asleep? As in getting a really sound sleep. Sounds odd, but I really struggle with sleep when I'm working. I get up at 5am and I think I subconsiously worry about what time it is (even though I set an alarm) and I wake up multiple times during the night. Obviously I'm not getting a proper sleep so it really takes it's toll the next day. Getting to sleep isn't usually a problem because I'm so tired, but I just can't stay asleep! 😪

I can't recommend Therapie's Himalayan Detox salts enough for this, they are expensive but really work, Cult Beauty stock then if you're interested :)

Sometimes a relaxing meditation can help. And I've also been told to set up a night time routine before getting in. Good luck hope you find something that works!!

Thank you! I really appreciate your help. I'll definitely get to Google later. I'm not worried about work as such; I think I subconsciously worry that I'll sleep in, even though I have an alarm set and I've never slept in before. I think the sleep disturbance could also be contributing to my IBS symptoms, as they seemed to appear around the same time (and both die back when I don't have to get up at 5am). It sounds like stress, but I'm the least stressed I've been in a long time right now!

Google "sleep hygiene". Some things are obvious, but their are some finer details. Hope it helps! Phones other end or out of bedroom, no electronic use in the room, avoid using laptop or phone an hour before bed and switch to candle light if you can. One caffeinated drink in the morning, no alcohol. I would say perhaps invest in 2 old school alarm clocks so you can sleep peacefully. Maybe consider what you're worrying about re: work? And don't exercise too late at night! Good luck!
