There certainly are some proven ways to help you get off to sleep, especially if you have something important on the next day and you want to ensure you’re refreshed and rejuvenated for it. Here are a few of my favourites, that tend to work very well for most people.
I’m wondering how many of you reading this article read the headline and found that it touched a nerve – maybe you’re struggling with your weight, or maybe you’ve been feeling like your sleep is less and less satisfying , no matter how early you go to bed.
Sleep is so important in every aspect of our lives and research is increasingly proving this. We need to ensure that we have sleeps which are, where possible, uninterrupted by external noises, movements or conditions and get “enough” of it every night.
Do you really need that beer before bedtime? Are you sure that having a red wine in the evening helps you sleep better? These are the sort of questions you might not have ever asked yourself, as a casual drink might just be part of your evening routine. You’ve probably always thought an evening drink is harmless.
It’s the (multi) billion dollar question really, and it’s something everybody should be interested in: just how much sleep should we be getting each night?
Enter hypnotherapy. This form of therapy, and the related techniques that tend to be associated with it (such as NLP) work so brilliantly at getting past the conscious mind and leaving suggestions for the subconscious to act on. This might seem controversial to some, but hypnotherapy (and particularly Time Line Therapy) works faster than pretty much any other technique. I don’t say that to belittle any other form of therapy; it’s just a fact that hypnotherapy works very quickly and can eliminate the need for continued long, drawn out sessions.
