Sweet Dreams! Getting a good night’s sleep.

September 22nd, 2011 | Posted by Angela in Sleep

Enjoying a good night’s sleep ranks among the best defense mechanisms we have to stay healthy, happy and wise. As we sleep, we heal and recuperate from the wear and tear of our day. Potential consequences of sleep deprivation are weakening of the immune system, obesity, risk of a variety of chronic illnesses including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, as well as psychological effects, such as memory loss, mood swings and depression. High priority should be given to enjoying a good night of sleep.

Tips for getting a good night’s sleep:

1. Do you need an oil change? We need to consume less trans fats found in foods like french fries and doughnuts and more omega-3’s found in fatty fish, walnuts and flaxseed to get a sound night of sleep.

2. Check the temperature of your room: 68 degrees is ideal. Your body temperature drops naturally as you drift into sleep and if it is too warm you toss and turn.

3. Mind dump: as bedtime nears write down nagging thoughts and deal with them the following day. Leave a pad of paper and a pen on your nightstand for any last minute thoughts that keep you awake.

Despite incorporating such healthy sleep practices some people experience a tug of war with sleep. Kathy struggled with both falling asleep and enjoying good quality of sleep for over eight years. She says “After four sessions with Angela I was able to fall asleep soon after laying down and my sleep quality was excellent.”

Clinical hypnotherapy is considered to be the best drug-free treatment for insomnia. Hypnotherapy resets your body’s internal clock—it knows how to sleep, it just needs to remember how. Energy and clear thinking await you. Say good-bye to fatigue, lethargy, forgetfulness, depression and anxiety. And say hello to energy and clarity of thinking. You no longer need to toss and turn, wondering what to do.

How much easier would sleep be if you could settle your mind and body? Access your inner mind so that you can experience the restorative sleep that you need and deserve!
