Is there a cure?

Tossing, turning and lying awake at night? Tired of counting sheep in vain?

An inability to fall asleep or waking up frequently during the night or too early in the morning are all symptoms of insomnia. For most people this type of insomnia is short term and is often induced by a change in routine.

However, in the majority of insomnia cases ,the core problem is emotional.

Anxiety, depression and unexpressed anger are all common causes.

Especially post Pandemic and the hardship that has followed peaceful sleep is even harder to attain.

If you can relate to the above ,why not try these simple measures to help you sleep better.

  • Cut back on coffee , tea and other sources of caffeine especially at night.

  • Avoid alcoholic drinks in the evening . Alcohol may help sleep onset but causes early morning wakefulness.

  • Avoid eating a large meal three hours before going to bed.

  • Take a walk or perform mild exercise such as yoga before going to bed.

  • Don

    t use your bedroom as a workplace.

  • Have a warm milk drink at bedtime. Milk contains an amino acid that is converted to a sleep-enhancing compound in the brain.

  • Take a warm relaxing bath instead of an invigorating shower before going to bed.

  • If you are unable to fall asleep within 20-30 minutes, get up and do something else until you do feel sleepy.

However if symptoms persist, the problem may be deeper rooted and specific treatment necessary.

The next step is to seek professional help in the form of a couple of sessions of deep relaxation hypnotherapy ,in which the root of the problem that is causing the insomnia is sought and addressed giving no further cause for sleeplessness.

Your subconscious mind controls all these thoughts and knows the root of the problem even if you don

t, that

s why hypnotherapy is so successful as it deals directly with the subconscious bypassing the conscious mind.
