Hypnotherapy Insomnia – Sleep is something we all need. It plays an essential and vital role in both your physical and mental well being. Psychologists believe this is because when you sleep, your body heals and repairs itself. Sleep allows your brain to deal with and process the information collected through the day.
Sleeping problems such as insomnia make it difficult for a person to get enough sleep. As well as making them feel tired, the lack of sleep can lead to physical illness and increase their risk of heart disease and obesity. Mentally, not getting enough sleep can lead to someone feeling anxious and can make it hard for them to concentrate.
Hypnotherapy Insomnia – The most common symptoms of insomnia include:
- low levels of concentration
- difficulty thinking clearly
- excessive sleepiness
- anxiety and depression.
Why is sleep so important?
If someone having prolonged periods of disrupted, poor sleep or no sleep at all, the damage can affect you instantly or affect them over time.
For example, if a person had a poor sleep but needed to drive, their low levels of concentration may result in them having an accident. Alternatively, over time the damage can lead them to suffer many chronic health conditions. A prolonged lack of sleep can increase the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.
These health conditions can develop because your blood vessels are unable to repair themselves. If you are not getting enough sleep, your body isn’t getting the time it needs to heal.
Psychologists have also found a link between lack of sleep and obesity. Surprisingly, those who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to be overweight and obese. The reasons behind this are unclear. However, it is thought that those who don’t get enough sleep may lack the energy to exercise. This level of low energy levels may be compensated for by overeating.
It is known that sleep is important to the ability to learn. It helps the imagination and improves the problem-solving skills. When sleeping problems occur, this ability is hindered. Over time this can make daily activities difficult, impacting on relationships and working life.
What is insomnia?
Insomnia is defined as difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep for long enough to feel refreshed the next morning.
Most people have experienced a disrupted sleep and will know how it feels when they can’t seem to fall asleep. It might be that they are thinking about something they have to do the next day or have had a coffee too near to the bed. Perhaps they found it easy to fall asleep, but continue to wake up through the night. Either way, poor sleep can leave them feeling exhausted and irritable the next day. Those who have insomnia will experience these feelings regularly.
It is estimated that a third of people in the UK have experienced episodes of insomnia during their lives. While it is not uncommon, it is believed that it can affect any age. However, people over the age of 60 and women appear to be more susceptible.
Hypnotherapy for sleep Hypnotherapy Insomnia
When treating sleeping problems, there are various approaches someone could take. It is important to first speak to their GP to rule out any physical causes. Their GP may recommend they take medicine to help them sleep. For some people, this can be an effective treatment, but it is essential to try and find out the underlying cause of the problem.
Hypnotherapy is another treatment option that many people find effective. Hypnotherapy for insomnia can tackle the root causes while helping them relax and drift off to sleep. For example, if anxiety or depression is the source of their insomnia, hypnotherapy for sleep may complement their existing treatment. Overcoming these issues will then help to improve their sleep. Alternatively, if a habit is causing their insomnia (such as alcohol) hypnotherapy for insomnia can work to break this habit.
