In our stress-filled world, Insomnia has become an epidemic. Half of all adults now complain of trouble sleeping. At least 30 million adults now endure the stress of severe, chronic insomnia.
Poor sleep impairs our ability to react creatively and appropriately to depression, or simply noise. In order to go to sleep, we need to relax; if someone is constantly worrying, they will prevent the natural process of sleep. People suffering depression will often over-dream, resulting in exhaustion the next day. In order to compensate for this, the body will often wake them up before too much dreaming has taken place, a problem that is called early-morning-waking syndrome.
If someone has suffered disturbed sleep for a while, they can become anxious in advance about whether or not they will have a good night’s sleep, which can perpetuate the problem even after the initial cause has disappeared. Sleeping pills will put you to sleep, but they can also inhibit deep sleep and REM, reducing the quality of sleep. Furthermore, the body develops a tolerance to them, necessitating larger and larger doses for them to have an effect. For these reasons, they should only be viewed as a short-term solution to specific situations. Your subconscious controls your sleep patterns and has a memory for virtually everything you do, and that includes a memory for a nice, deep, restful sleep. Hypnosis is indeed very relaxing, making sleep come easier, and it has no harmful side effects.
It is also a good choice for helping to re-learn the behavior of healthy sleeping patterns and it disconnects an overactive intellect. With the use of hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis, you can experience significantly improved sleep, mood and energy. By learning to successfully use techniques of self-hypnosis, you will take control of your sleep, mind and body. You will be empowered by the realization that the key to conquering insomnia resides within you.
Therefore, you will boost your confidence in your personal power and strengthen your sense of self esteem, which is fundamental to optimal health and well-being.
