Sleep is the foundation of our health and wellness. It’s difficult, and some might say impossible, to optimize your fitness if you aren’t sleeping well. Are you one of the one-third of Americans who gets less than six hours of sleep each night?
The past year has been stressful for many of us. Being separated or isolated from those we care for is a new experience for so many people. Some have lost their jobs or fear unemployment while others are adapting to working at home. Some parents are home schooling their children while managing work and home life, all under one roof.
This daily stress and for some, anxiety, can lead to insomnia and sleep issues.
Insomnia is inadequate or poor-quality sleep because of one or more of the following:
- difficulty falling asleep
- waking up frequently during the night with difficulty returning to sleep
- waking up too early in the morning
- non-refreshing sleep
Even a couple of nights of sleeplessness can be a sign of unhealthy stress accumulation or anxiety, which should be dealt with immediately and naturally. If not, this temporary condition of sleeplessness can grow worse and become chronic. Then, by taking sleeping medications, which can be highly habit forming (and creates insomnia as a withdrawal side effect), deepens what is causing the insomnia in the first place.

Sleep deprivation can affect both the central nervous system and your immune system.
A lack of sleep prevents your immune system from building up its protection. Your body needs infection-fighting antibodies and cytokines. It uses these to combat foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. Sleep is also necessary to keep your central nervous system functioning properly. Your ability to concentrate and your emotional state are also at risk.
So, are you counting sheep to get to sleep, or would you rather unplug and get a good night’s sleep for a change? Read on…
Should you be hypnotized to improve sleep?
In actuality, you must become de-hypnotized.
With hypnosis you can de-hypnotize yourself from the trance of everyday life, and then you can release the worry and stress that you may be clinging to.
With my Good Night Insomnia program, you can retrain your brain, to move from one level of sleep to another, and eliminate the worry and anxiety so you can stay asleep.
We will work together on the power of your subconscious mind to foster deep and natural sleep. And when you become tired your body will automatically begin the natural process of relaxing for deep rest, sleep, and recuperation.
