We all know that sleep is the third element of a healthy lifestyle alongside diet and exercise trio. Good quality sleep, that allows you to feel alert during the day, is critical to your health and wellbeing. However, getting that good night’s sleep can be easier said than done.
If we don’t get enough sleep – for whatever reason – then it impacts on our behaviour. Ongoing bad sleep can have so many difficult-to-deal with side effects that can run into all parts of life.
Hypnotherapy is a popular way of tackling entrenched sleep problems. It works by altering the way that the previously programmed subconscious mind has learnt to behave.
All hypnosis comes from you and it is a state we go into daily, in fact, for example, just before we fall asleep or just before we wake up. In this state, your subconscious mind is more receptive. What is your subconscious hearing at this point in your sleep?
The thing about your subconscious mind is that it will always act for your benefit, even if it doesn’t feel like that at all. Your mind thinks your sleep should be this way, so we need to tell it how you actually want it to be now.
Hypnotherapy has helped many people move on from their sleep disorder, sleep well and benefit from new improved sleep patterns. Hypnotherapy is hypnosis for positive beneficial effect. A qualified hypnotherapist (make sure they are) can help you use this natural state quicker, faster and more effectively to change your subconscious so you can sleep well.
Even ‘trying’ to get to sleep can impact your chance of falling, and staying, asleep at the right time. When we ‘try’ there is an immediate assumption of failure. Just think of when you try to lose weight or try to be on time. Instead hypnotherapists, by using techniques to induce relaxation and guiding us to allow our subconscious minds to focus on what we actually want, thus increasing our chances of getting, and enjoying, our sleep.
