November 2019 – contributor to Maria Conde’s Oasis community:

Ooh, what a great conversation with Maria Conde yesterday. We kicked the conversation off by discussing the most important principles re sleep and then went on to discuss really juicy stuff.

The three principles to understand sleep in your context are the following. Be it light sleep issues or fully blown sleeplessness. The medically recognised questionnaire helps to get some structure in, but the following applies <img draggable=:

  • Don’t be a heroe (toughening things out is not recommended)
  • Observe and don’t judge
  • Trace it back to its origin

And while that might sound quite ‘vanilla’, we discussed practical cases.

  • when to check for sleep hygiene issues (not always relevant and sometimes even unnecessary)
  • a high-level view on what the medical society considers feasible for women in menopause (the research is inconclusive and, as everything else only to be considered in your context, get in touch for the details)

Thanks so much, Maria for having me. You are doing a great thing by helping your community to assist themselves with self-care. They will thrive because of you.

  • Weeks ago, it was walk-in clinic time. Two days of 15 minutes slot we used the questionnaire which is part of the preview you can order
