Marriage and Family Therapist and complex trauma survivor Tamara Ridge explains how trauma during childhood leads to habits that manifest in adulthood. The good news is that personal growth is possible and as we heal from trauma, we can change our trauma habits.

One of the big challenges for adults who suffered childhood trauma includes difficulty sleeping.
Here are Tamara’s recommendations for improving sleep:
I was surprised how much a Weighted Blanket like this one helped me sleep. It just felt like an all over hug and imparts a sense of security that helps me fall asleep and sleep better: https://amzn.to/3bXondA
These natural sleep remedies help me stay asleep through the night. I struggle with restless legs and the passion flower/valerian root combination really calms them down for me so I can rest:

Childhood trauma and the stresses that come afterward often lead to magnesium deficiency (most Americans are already magnesium deficient, according to research). Luckily, magnesium absorbs into the skin and a nice warm – not hot – soak for 20 minutes before bed can create calm in the body and enhance sleep. This soak is high grade and well absorbed: https://amzn.to/3vpoB4M
