    That would be really amazing! I hate that ive lost my good sleep. Three years ago i didnt pay it a thought. I slept good everywhere and under any circumstance. Over night that turned into a three year long struggle with my bed!!

    I believe this to be the case in general. There are many things that can set our sleep off down a faulty path and usually once we get our pattern back…and consolidate this for a while too…we can return to being more flexible. Hope that offers some comfort.

    I am planning to not follow the regime when I am on holiday as I sleep much better then anyway – 8+ hours a night rather than my normal 5 to 6! It would be nice to think I will come back to good sleep, but this has never been the case before. I'm pleased that it seems to have worked for you though

    Take courage ellenmarie. Nature's way is to heal and with the Sleepio programme it will come right. Say “I love you” to your bed when you get in! Just a thought.

    And that is a common story. One life event can send us down a path of frustratingly poor sleep. However, the fact that you used to be a good sleeper and be very flexible is a good sign for things to come when you get your sleep pattern turned around again.

    Has anyone else had the experience of poor sleep following a good night? If so, any possible explanation?

    I wish you well after your holiday. I hope I don't get punishment from the Prof for what I said earlier. I don't understand how it happened. I still get odd nights (like last night) when I was awake from 4 to 6 am

    Oh good! I think at the start of any therapy it's daunting as you can feel you have a long road ahead.but once you see the first small change, it is a big boost. I would use the community here, too, to keep you incentivised and motivated…that's what it's here for.

    Hello Natalie,

    It seems I have to endure several bad nights before I can have a better night and even then it's never that refreshing. No idea why though.

    Any thoughts on why we should have poor sleep following good sleep? Seems like a common experience. Does research back this up at all?
