How Do You Deal With Insomnia?

How Do You Deal With Insomnia? | A Girl & Grey


Is it something you’ve ever had to deal with?

I’ve been dealing with insomnia on and off for years. Sometimes, it’s a distant memory, and other times I find it plaguing my evenings for months straight. 

Recently, I’ve been dealing with way more insomnia than I’m normally used to – to the point that I’ve had to send Harry to the spare room just to get a decent six or so hours of sleep. And that’s if I’m lucky, of course. 

I wish I knew more about sleep issues and insomnia. I feel like there’s a wealth of knowledge out there around the topic of sleep, but a lot of it contradicts each other. Do you find it to be the same?

The only thing I’ve found to marginally help is to sleep alone, and with the a/c on. Both things are obviously not ideal, but they’re helping for now.

I thought I’d put it out there to you guys, and see what your recommendations are for dealing with insomnia. Obviously I’d love your help, so leave me a comment below telling me how you deal with insomnia!

Maybe I’ll share your recommendations over on my instagram stories

    I still struggle! And I take sedating antidepressants of an evening… joy!! I really try to avoid my phone and laptop when I properly get into bed and nessle with a book… or annoy my cat. The insomnia life is too real

    Ah nooo I’m so sorry you have to deal with it! I’ve found that a tiny little nightcap of Baileys can sometimes help but obviously it’s not the healthiest habit in the world, and you can’t drink with antidepressants either, can you? Hoping you can get a full night of sleep soon girl. xo
