A lot of people who have insomnia, think they need to take sleeping pills to help them overcome it. While it’s true that sleeping pills can help, they may not be necessary. Very often, the fear of not sleeping is the biggest cause of insomnia.There are many reasons for sleep issues but many of them can easily be dealt with by helping you change your thought patterns with respect to falling asleep. Many insomniacs have this disorder but exacerbate the condition because the very prospect of sleep becomes so stressful that they lower their chances of a restful and easy sleep because the anticipation of bedtime and the fear of another sleepless night works them into a frenzy.
Symptoms of InsomniaA lot of people have problems falling asleep from time to time. Maybe you’ve had too much coffee or aren’t feeling well. Perhaps you’ve had a rotten day at work or your entire sleeping patterns have been “off” due to shift changes or lifestyle changes. Stress can put a big damper on your life as well because you may run yourself ragged all day long and then when you finally lay down to rest, insomnia happens because suddenly your mind is going a million miles per hour at the thought of what didn’t get done today, what needs to be done tomorrow, and so on.
But the occasional rough night isn’t what most people would classify as being insomnia or a sleep disorder. A Sleep disorder tends to be repetitive. Insomnia sufferers often have problems getting to sleep every night. Perhaps you have trouble falling asleep. Perhaps your problem is in staying asleep for the entire night. Maybe it’s even a combination of the two.
Self Help Insomnia Recordings
Can recordings help you fall asleep? They can help you fall asleep and they can help you stay asleep as well. NLP or neuro linguistic programming can help you change thought patterns so that you can train your brain to allow you to fall asleep more easily. We can develop habits that make insomnia worse, such as panicking about the bedtime ritual. Recordings that use NLP therapy can help your brain and your body relax at bedtime instead of getting filled with anxiety.
What About One on One Help?
One on one help with a trained therapist and / or hypnotherapist might also be helpful. Perhaps beyond your bedtime routine, there are other issues that are making getting to sleep or staying asleep difficult. Uncovering the reasons behind the sleep disorder can help you change it.
