19 Nov Insomnia Relief Through Hypnosis
It’s no secret that insomnia or lack of quality sleep is taking a toll on us. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control went as far as saying that insufficient sleep is a public health epidemic.
According to a survey published by the Better Sleep Council, 48% of Americans have trouble sleeping and do not get nearly enough rest each night. We are becoming a nation of insomniacs, stressed out and anxious because of work or financial worries. Heavy emotions such as anger, frustration, fears, and ‘unfinished business’ can contribute to restless nights as well. A consistent pattern of sleep deprivation can negatively affect both our physical and mental well-being.
Insomnia Side Effects
What happens when we don’t get enough sleep? It is difficult to concentrate on the tasks at hand, our memory is less sharp, and we feel lethargic. We struggle to just get through the day, sometimes overdoing it with food, cigarettes, or coffee to stay awake. This routine in turn causes us to feel ‘wired’ and it interferes with the body’s natural cycles. The long term effects of insomnia can lead to serious health issues including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and depression.
What does a good night sleep do for us? It regenerates cells in our bodies, which leads to healing and to fewer aches and pains. We are more physically active throughout the day – which helps us sleep even better at night.
Sleep also refreshes the brain, allowing us to release and sort the overload of information that we take in every day. A good night’s sleep helps us stay sharp, focused and more optimistic. It reduces irritation, and as a result we find ourselves calmer in stressful situations and in a better mood.
We all have different triggers that may wake us up in the middle of the night. They may be financial worries, general anxiety, or daily stress that needs to find an outlet.
The good news is that we can release the internal blockages that interfere with our natural sleep patterns. We can re-learn how to sleep deeply and soundly and wake up refreshed and ready for the day.
Insomnia Treatment Through Hypnosis
The subconscious mind remembers and holds in its memory virtually everything that we do, including both sleeping well and sleeping poorly. Hypnosis is a safe and effective method for overcoming insomnia*. Researchers at the Psychological Institute of the University of Zurich found that hypnosis can help promote “slow wave sleep,” which is critical for a good night’s rest and to feeling energetic and rejuvenated each morning.
