How to Sleep Right Using Sleep Hypnosis
For many, getting to sleep can feel like an exercise in futility. According to studies, only 65% of adults get the doctor-recommended 7 hours of sleep per night. This is cause for alarm, as sleep is essential to many aspects of physical and mental health. What is even more disheartening is that 30% of adults experience some form of insomnia due to stress, hectic schedules, and poor diet among other causes. While it’s easy to take sleep aids and nip the problem in the bud, regular use of such medication can lead to dependency, cognitive issues, and drowsiness.
One way to beat insomnia and get back to bed without medication is through sleep hypnosis.
Sleep hypnosis and hypnotherapy work to retrain your brain’s thought patterns through suggestion. In over half of studies, these practices are found to help people with recurring problems falling and staying asleep. Hypnotherapy has been found to be beneficial in treating psychological trauma, depression, sleep disorders, and even has helped people quit smoking, among them Hollywood legend Cary Grant.
While not all people are equally susceptible to hypnosis or suggestion, the relief many people have had and the rising online community of YouTube hypnotists and mobile apps for sleep hypnosis suggests that there is definitely something to be said for the practice.
For those who are not as suggestible, there are other sleep aid options, including Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
