Navigating grief and trauma with practical tools and resources
Why consider z’s?
The health benefits of sleep have been documented for decades. Sleep is crucial to our mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Sleep improves memory, repairs body systems, controls weight, reduces stress, maintains heart health, and improves memory function. Those grieving and living with trauma, however, find they sleep very little or not at all for reasons such as intrusive thoughts, panic and anxiety, a racing mind, heightened startle response, nightmares, or difficulty sleeping without loved ones nearby or in bed. Sleep studies, sleep schools, and specialized sleep doctors can all provide extensive suggestions for getting some much-needed z’s while on your healing journey.
