Getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of keeping the brain and the body healthy. Disrupting that sleep can lead to medical conditions such as heart disease, obesity, adrenal fatigue, and allow psychiatric disorders to worsen over time.
While medical treatments should be supervised through a licensed medical professional, simply changing how we live may diminish many symptoms.
How do we change how we live? Changing a behavior pattern can be difficult on your own. It takes focus, determination, and repetition. However, with assistance from hypnosis, a person’s behavior may be altered on a more consistent basis, making the changes occur more quickly and with greater success.
These methods have been used since ancient civilizations to transform consciousness. They enable the mind to dismiss negativity and bad behaviors and create new healthy behaviors and heal itself. Over the years the concepts, methods and beliefs have evolved to the field of hypnosis as it is today.
It has been shown that listening to a recording of calming music or ocean sounds prior to drifting off to sleep reduces levels of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol in the blood stream. These stress hormones are known to cause alertness, so if you don’t reduce them, it makes it harder to sleep. The presence of them over an extended period will cause adrenal fatigue.
Smoking, with its obvious negative health effects, may be eliminated with hypnosis. This in turn will facilitate better sleep and easier breathing. Better breathing decreases snoring, apnea and damage to the heart from lack of oxygen. The resulting improved self-image and confidence increases overall happiness, thereby reducing stress. Less stress, more calm. More calm, more sleep.
Whatever reasons you tell yourself for not being able to go to sleep or stay asleep, it is important to recognize that those habits that keep you from achieving your recommended 7-8 hours of nightly rest can be changed. A soothing CD or hypnotic trance can help you alter your state of mind and change those poor behaviors, and your life, for the better.
