Do you often feel exhausted at night but somehow you are incapable of falling asleep? Perhaps you fall asleep easily but wake up in the morning feeling tired and lethargic? Insomnia and sleep disruption are conditions which affect nearly 30 percent of the US population. For many, the unfulfilled desire for restful sleep can create feelings of frustration, anxiety, and helplessness.
Sleep challenges are often the result of a restless mind and worry about the real or imagined challenges in one’s life. People lie awake at night feeling anxious about falling asleep. The more one tries to fall asleep, the more difficult it becomes. This can keep someone trapped in a vicious cycle of worry. Sleep is a natural event that we cannot force to happen. The best we can do is learn to relax our minds and trust in the natural rhythm of restful sleep. Fortunately, hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to develop the conditions necessary for proper sleep. When we sleep deeply, our bodies heal themselves, hormone levels are restored and the mind is rejuvenated.
How Poor Sleep Quality Affects our Lives
Most of us know the feeling of waking up in the morning feeling lethargic and unmotivated to start our day. When poor sleep is a chronic condition, the effects on our emotional and physical health can be severe. We may feel a lack of motivation and energy, mental cloudiness, and increased irritability. Scientific evidence has shown that chronic insomnia can also raise the risk for hypertension, cardiovascular disease, depression, and cognitive disorders. In the long term, insomnia can be a very detrimental condition. When we are suffering from any of the issues listed, it is more important than ever to reduce stress in our lives and cultivate centeredness.
Are Sleeping Pills the Answer? NO.
Although sleeping pills may help initially to induce sleep, they are not a long-term solution. It has been shown the sleeping pills interfere and inhibit deep sleep and REM dreaming cycles. This significantly reduces sleep quality. Eventually your body grows accustomed to the drug and you need a greater dosage to elicit the same sleep-inducing effect. Whenever we take unnatural substances such as sleeping pills, we create more imbalance in the body.
Hypnotherapy to Restore Proper Sleep Function
Deep and restful sleep is a natural cycle like breathing. We cannot learn how to sleep. What we can do is to understand the beliefs, patterns, and attitudes we have towards sleep that are impeding its natural function. Hypnotherapy is an amazing way to understand any negative subconscious beliefs we have about sleep and to instill new beliefs that will help us to live life with more centeredness and ease.
Anxiety and stress are two of the greatest culprits that make it difficult to calm your mind before bed. Our internal chatter can keep our bodies feeling nervous and contracted. This may keep us trapped in the Sympathetic Nervous System or “Fight or Flight” nervous system. We must be operating from our Parasympathetic Nervous System (“Rest and Digest”) before bed to sleep well.
In a hypnotherapy for Insomnia session, you will be guided into a deep state of trance. During trance, our NYC Hypnotherapist Jeffrey Rose will use the power of suggestion to offer new belief systems, attitudes, and expectations about sleep. Existing belief systems and conditioning related to sleep will be brought to the surface and replaced with systems that are supportive to your well being. Negative associations that link sleep to frustration, worry and fear will be replaced with positive associations that link sleep to tranquility, ease, and trust. The way you expect gravity to keep you rooted to the earth, you will expect to sleep soundly each night. Other positive suggestions will be instilled that help you feel more empowered in the greater picture of your life. The challenges that once occupied so much space in your mind will have less weight and influence over you. You will feel more confident in your ability to handle challenges without taking them so seriously and preventing you from enjoying yourself in the moment.
If you are ready to be free of insomnia and to start enjoying the benefits of deep, restful sleep, then give us a call today at our NYC office to book a session with Jeffrey Rose. We are excited to help you achieve greater balance and well being in your life!
