Everyone needs sleep; in fact we all need 6-8 hours of sleep each night in order to function properly. Losing out on one night’s sleep can take a while to get over but eventually we do catch up. But unfortunately, long term sleep deprivation is just not as easy to recover from.
Insomnia deprives many of us from much needed sleep. Most crippling issue tends to be that nothing particularly is impeding them from sleeping. There is a comfy bed, no distractions, you’re the correct temperature, you don’t feel really stressed but something just will not let you sleep. Hypnosis for sleeping disorders may help you get some precious sleep.
So how does having trouble sleeping affect the person?
If we are experiencing inferior sleep or no sleep at all, even though there is nothing stopping us doing so, we are experiencing sleeping disorders. This is where we haven’t had the chance to sleep, which leaves us lifeless and lacklustre.
You may be experiencing insomnia if: everyday life is difficult as you are tired, your mood is down and you find it tricky to pay attention, you are suffering disrupted or restless sleep, you are awakening early in the morning or you find it hard to get to sleep or sleep at all.
The problems behind insomnia are typically quite simple. Both tension and panic are major factors behind this condition. The simple reason they can affect us this way is because the issues manifest themselves consciously and subconsciously: which means there are two levels of our mind we are dealing with each and every time we try to go to sleep.
Consciously, most people will have suffered an unsettled mind when attempting to sleep from time to time, where the problems of that day continue to buzz and spin around in your head showing no indication of leaving. A lot of people end up dropping off to sleep through mental exhaustion.
Endured on a long term basis, stress and anxiety can show up in unusual ways within the mind. Some sufferers begin losing sleep when they undergo panic attacks in the night without identifying what is happening to them. Now and then stress and anxiety can hit you without you realising the source; we just absorb the stresses around us without realising that it’s been affecting us on a subconscious level.
After we become conscious that we are having difficulty sleeping, we can occasionally start a vicious cycle because we worry about going to sleep. Without the capability to control these symptoms, an individual may become anxious, lethargic and stressed out.
Even if practising well known methods, such as ‘putting worries aside’ before bed by writing them on a notepad or telling your spouse what you are thinking about, we are only dealing with the forefront of our mind – the conscious. Consequently, the largest section of the mind – the subconscious mind isn’t addressed and so the symptoms may continue despite your best efforts.
Hypnosis for sleep disorders helps you find the underlying issues triggering the condition and enables you to overcome them. Hypnotherapy empowers you, offering you accessibility to the most powerful part of your mind, handling the problems within and in the end reprogramming it to work with you, rather than against you.
