Are your thoughts stopping you from getting a good nights sleep?
Sleep….wonderful when you get it, a bit of a nightmare if you don’t.
Sometimes, the things we worry about during the day, keep us awake at night and the lack of sleep then prevents us from problem solving during the following day…..it can become a vicious cycle! I call it ‘the washing machine head’.
A solid night’s sleep is essential for a long and healthy life!
Most of us need around six to eight hours of good-quality sleep a night to function properly and therefore adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more. But its quality not quantity that really makes the difference between feeling rested and happy or stressed and miserable.
Hypnotherapy can help you reduce your anxious thoughts, improve your ability to relax, reduce your adrenaline levels and prepare your body for sleep.

Getting a good nights sleep can:-
Improve your memory – Studies have shown that while we sleep, our brains process and consolidate our memories from the day. Therefore, when you get enough sleep, those memories get stored correctly and don’t get lost.
Help maintain a healthy weight – Did you know that the hormone leptin plays a key role in making you feel full? When you don’t get enough sleep, leptin levels drop. Result: people who are tired are just plain hungrier and they seem to especially crave high-fat and high-calorie foods.
Reduce the possibility of having an accident – People who are tired are often more clumsy and have a worse sense of orientation so they are more likely to cut themselves chopping vegetable, fall off a ladder or trip over says Prof J Mindell of St Joseph’s University. According to The Institute of Medicine, 1 in 5 motor accidents are apparently caused by over tiredness.
Improve your mood. I am sure we have all experienced feeling a bit more cranky after a poor nights sleep. Consistent poor sleep is now seen as one constituent of depression. Low serotonin levels result in sleep disruption and sleep disorders and of course low serotonin is linked to low mood. Hypnotherapy can help to improve your serotonin levels.
Improve your pain threshold. Poor sleep can affect your ability to manage pain. In clinical studies, the symptoms of Fibromyalgia (a condition where the brain mistakes fatigue for pain) have been re-created by sleep deprivation.
Improve your general health. A good nights sleep is responsible for a better overall health. It can contribute to a stronger immune system. Conversely, one study simulated the effects of the disturbed sleep patterns of shift workers on 10 young healthy adults. After a mere four days, three of them had blood glucose levels that qualified as pre-diabetic. Think on…..
Within a few sessions, you will find that you mood improves, your thoughts are less disruptive, you feel calmer and your sleep improves.
