‘When I’m ALMOST drifting off to sleep, I become aware and it wakes me’ (Insomnia Open Class #158)

In this episode Coach Alina and Coach Daniel answer a question from Ryan who is wondering what to do apart from reassuring oneself the it’s safe to be awake when it takes a long time to fall asleep.

Andrea asks about how insomnia can change how we approach other problems in life. Rowdy wonders about the likelihood of SFi for a 19 year old and Thanmayi has hypnic awareness. Finally Bhaswat is peeing a lot despite having been to a urologist who found nothing wrong.
