Sleep Protocol


I have tried to create a sleep protocol since I had so much success with a food protocol. I wake up at the same time now every day. I allow the urge to press the snooze button and I’ve had success with that. The problem lies in the night before. It’s not that I “can’t” sleep, it’s that I don’t want to go to sleep. I procrastinate and prolong it and try to stay up as long as I can, which is until 4 am. So I go to sleep at 4 and wake up at 9, which is 5 hours of sleep. I can function pretty well with little sleep but it makes waking up consistently that much harder. My case is not a typical insomnia case where the person wants to go to sleep. I do not. I am afraid to go to sleep. It’s a fear of dying. I am relatively young and healthy so it’s not a real possibility but I’ve had this fear for about 30 years since my mother died. I don’t like to lose consciousness in any way like anesthesia or sleep. I would love to know how to resolve this as I have so many other things in this program. Except I can’t force or “allow” myself to go to sleep. I know it is all fear-based so I’m clear on that, but that doesn’t resolve it because come night time my anxiety level goes high. Thank you.
