Huw Griffiths and Jo
Talking withn Jo how her Insomnia was helped by mindfulness practice and still working 5 yrs on.
Show Notes

Huw talks with Jo about her journey with insomnia, from sleep envy, to ‘fast to sleep’. 5yrs ago Jo came on the 8 week MBSR course and found that together with other information she could understand and accept the insomnia and not just fight with it. She still uses the mindfulness techniques almost daily as a calmative prior to going to bed. In the last 2 years she has only occasionally had insomnia but she enjoys the mindfulness meditations of the body scan and the mountain . As Jo says this way of approaching insomnia isn’t easy, it is not a quick fix, it is a commitment and demands time and energy, going to the mind gym. As Jo says doctors want to help but only have pills in the arsenal, although talking therapies are becoming more available.  So please if you are suffering with insomnia contact me at huw@mindfunessbath.co.uk to find out more about online courses and the 8 wk mindfulness course.
