Some of the things Katherine suggests you can do for yourself and your kids at home:

  1. Reduce blue light exposure as much as possible: many devices now have settings where you can eliminate the blue light. Anti-blue light glasses are also available.

  2. Create a nighttime routine for the whole family that eliminates electronics at least 1-2 hours before bedtime

  3. Take a warm shower, read a book, meditate or stretch before bed

  4. Make the bedroom a technology-free sanctuary to avoid the temptation to send that last email or message!

  5. See an Osteopath. The musculoskeletal, nervous, and even visceral systems are areas that an Osteopath will assess and treat. This can be done through both structural and cranial work, and then supported with supplementary advice to utilize at home. Mindfulness, meditation, and exercise can all be beneficial in restoring sleep and will be recommended appropriately by your osteopath. 

 

Do not hesitate to see what an Osteopath can do to help!
