Ask Daniel #35: To Fei, Marvin, Aleksa, Lena, Georgie, Aaron, Dominic, Vince and Rebecca

Fei’s hypnic jerks are gone! But how about that insomnia that happens before traveling? Marvin asks about CBD and Melatonin, are those good options? Aleksa is afraid of looking very aged 5 years from now due to insomnia, can that happen? Lena feels comforted by the fact that after 2 days of no sleep, she experienced micro sleep. Georgie wonders if short sleep can cause muscle loss. Aaron is seeing better sleep after starting to spend less time in bed, but the sleep is light towards the morning, is that normal? Dominic has started CBTI, but is he doing it right? Vince has a relapse, what to do? Rebecca has a night of 5 hours of sleep, that’s big! But how long before things get more predictable overall?
