Could Hypnotherapy Help Your Insomnia?
Have you tried counting sheep, reading or watching television trying to drift off to sleep? Do any of those things work? Do you go to sleep only to wake up a few hours later and find you are unable to go back to sleep? Do you often awaken in the morning still feeling overly tired?
Everyone spends a restless or sleepless night sometime or another, but when it is a nightly occurrence, it can become a problem for you.
These are possible signs of insomnia, which is the inability to fall asleep or remain asleep in order to get enough rest and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.
Insomnia is not respecter of persons or age, and can be long or short termed.
Insomnia changes your life. People who suffer from insomnia are often:
- Have memory loss or problems concentrating
- Feel depressed
- Are more prone to accidents
- Have an increased risk of heart disease
- Develop Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
- Develop sleep apnea
Although for those who don’t experience insomnia, it may not sound like a serious condition, but its side effects can be very serious.
Two Types of Insomnia
- Primary Insomnia does not occur as a result of other medical issues you might be experiencing, although it may be triggered by events in your life such as stress or change.
- Secondary Insomnia is typically a side effect of some underlying problem:
- Health conditions
- Tobacco, Caffeine or Alcohol
Many people, as they try to cope with their inability to get quality restful sleep, will often begin worrying about not sleeping or doing things like trying to go to bed too early, or even turn to medication. Medications must be taken at the appropriate time before going to bed, and may often leave you feeling unrefreshed and groggy in the morning. Depending on medication becomes an expensive and undesirable crutch.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way that will help you address any issues that may be causing your insomnia as it helps you understand and focus on thoughts that can help change past learned behaviors.
Hypnosis combined with NLP are powerful tools that have been recognized as being very effective in changing habits, they can help you break the cycle of sleepless nights and get the sleep you need and want.
