Many people experience a bad night's sleep for various reasons, commonly because they
have something on their mind. Insomnia and sleep problems are often caused by stress and anxiety as well as many other individual factors. However, if your sleeping problems continue for more than a couple of days at a time, I recommend you see a doctor, to check that your sleeplessness isn't a more serious condition requiring medical treatment. In most cases, insomnia can be viewed as a bad habit and like all bad habits can be unlearned and replaced with good habits like falling asleep easily and enjoying a proper night's sleep every night.
General information on insomnia and sleep problems
We are all born with a natural ability to fall asleep easily. That is why insomnia is more often than not a habit or a side effect of more general stress.
Insomnia can affect every aspect of your life. The tiredness it brings reduces your ability to think clearly, makes decision-making difficult and leads to irritability and short-temper.
And those are only the most obvious effects. Recent research showed that even losing only 2 hours of sleep a night impacts the immune system by lowering the activity of natural killer cells (disease fighters) by up to 20%!
Sleep is one of the most easily disrupted processes within the body. And once disrupted, sleep often stays that way, due to the vicious cycle of lack of sleep and worry.
Hypnosis is a great way to develop positive new sleep habits
Generally, hypnotherapy clients' sleep problems fall into two categories. The first is simply not being able to fall asleep at night. The second involves waking up at an inconveniently early hour and not being able to fall asleep again. Hypnotherapy can help you develop skills to significantly improve your sleep patterns and can help with indirect effects of insomnia and sleep problems such as daytime anxiety and bruxism (teeth grinding during the night).
The moments before sleep are scientifically measurable as 'hypnotic'. If you can learn to achieve this comfortable, daydreamy state at will, you will become a sleep expert. Imagine the benefits this will bring to your daily life - more energy and enthusiasm, better health, confidence and motivation. All in addition to significantly strengthening your new and healthy sleeping habit.
Hypnotherapy can help with getting to sleep by:
• Re-educating your mind to expect to enjoy a good night's sleep
• Teaching new relaxation techniques to help your mind and body to slow down at the end of the day.
Sleeping becomes much easier in this state.
• Helping you to learn techniques to remove some of the noise from a racing mind. Insomnia and most
sleep problems are a very modern phenomenon and representative of the pace of modern life.
• Helping you to understand some of the causes of insomnia and sleeping problems.
Hypnosis is excellent for stopping the 'chattering mind' that plagues so many insomniacs creating a highly effective treatment for those needing help.
Additionally, hypnosis relaxes you deeply, which is exactly what you need for your body and mind to 'tip over' into sleep.
