A significant number of my clients present with insomnia. The underlying cause is usually stress in one form or another. Inevitably there is an inability to “still the mind” as they constantly replay the day’s stressful events, worry about issues and problems in their life and generally prevent themselves from drifting into sleep by unrelenting hyper activity of the mind.
Sleep is vital for our health, and mental wellbeing.
We spend a third of our life in bed. We owe it to ourselves to make our sleeping conditions and the quality of our sleep the best we possibly can.
Why is it that some sleep seems more refreshing than other sleep? The type of sleep which was described by one of my clients as a “hard sleep”, a sleep that - when she did finally get to sleep - she found she was exhausted when she woke with hands in tight fists that had to be prized open. Hardly a relaxing sleep!
It is very important for us to prepare ourselves for sleep. Many clients have found listening to my mp3 file “Relax into Deep Sleep” to be an excellent way to prepare them for a restful and refreshing sleep. By drifting into a state of hypnotic relaxation they are able to gently and easily still the mind, let go and enjoy a stressfree sleep.
I also recommend the following strategies to assist them in their preparation:
