• Welcome!

    I am glad you are here.

    Meet Debra DiPietro

    I started The Warm Milk Journal back in 2010 on a free WordPress platform as a way to reach out to other people that may be suffering from insomnia and anxiety.

    At the time, I was a school teacher, mom, and just plain worn out. I knew I was not the only one feeling stress from daily life and losing precious sleep at night.

    What started out as a blog about insomnia became much more - I realized that getting a good night sleep was more than just how comfortable our bedrooms were or not drinking caffeine too late in the day, etc. The more research I did, the more feedback I got from our readers, and the things I did in my own daily life revealed that how we spend our days greatly affects the quality of sleep we have at night.

    Our diets, our spiritual lives, our attitudes, how much exercise we get, and so much more play a role at bedtime.
