Dr Ne­rina Ram­lakhan, Si­lent­night’s sleep ex­pert

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Health -

‘It wasn’t un­til my 30s that I re­alised just how badly I slept. I was al­ways tired but wired, I found it really dif­fi­cult to switch off and con­stantly woke up feel­ing as if I had been awake half the night. Even­tu­ally I reached a point where I crashed. My break­through came when I went to a yoga work­shop run by a doc­tor who talked about the dif­fer­ence between sleep and rest. Af­ter that I took up yoga and med­i­ta­tion. It turned it around for me and I’ve been do­ing it every day since. It’s about self-care – when you make the con­nec­tion between the things you do every day and the way you sleep, that be­comes pow­er­ful.’
