Dealing with insomnia
A lack of sleep can cause us much more damage that simply feeling drowsy at the office the next day.
Insomnia, whether caused through work stress, health anxieties, family worries, can cause our body to begin to stop functioning correctly. This can lead to digestive problems, anxiety provoked breathing difficulties, general aches and pains.
While it is true that not everyone will need the advised 8 hours each night, we do need to find our own routine and sleep pattern that works for us.
For you to feel rested the next day we need to reach what is known as REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. This is the period of time that our subconscious mind uses to reflect on the events of the day and file them accordingly, to make sense of what we have seen, heard, felt, etc.
If we do not have sufficient sleep for our minds to undertake this task, is it any wonder that we feel more anxious throughout the day, more irritable and less able to cope with unexpected difficulties.
Finding your own night time routine is much more in depth than simply switching of the light and closing your eyes. It can help to clear your mind before you go to your bedroom so that by the time you get into bed you feel more relaxed and therefore more likely to fall into a natural sleep.
Self hypnosis and hypnosis tapes can help with this as can one to one hypnosis or life coaching sessions. You can work through with your therapist to discover what helps and what doesn't so that you can create your very own unique routine.
