Struggle to Sleep – Waking up Tired? FREE Sleep Hypnosis

If you are anything like me, you may require a little wind down time.  I like to enjoy a relaxing shower, incorporating sleep inducing oils such as Lavender and a Serenity Blend.  I occasionally use a diffuser in the bedroom with a blend of Balance and Serenity Therapeutic Grade Oils by DoTerra.  Many factors can cause insomnia which can include: stress, jet lag, alcohol, nicotine or caffeine, noisy, cold or hot room, shift patterns, illness or drugs, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.  If your sleeplessness lasts for over a month or affects your daily life, then your GP may recommend sleeping pills.  However, these come with many side effects, including drowsiness the next day.  It is estimated that one in three people have mild insomnia and many more poor sleepers have developed sleep habits that make it difficult to change.

So if you are looking to explore some natural strategies, you have come to the right place:

  1. Changing your Pattern of Sleep:  Put the time you are awake at night to better use.  If you focus solely on getting to sleep, it could make matters worse.  Sleep is a natural phenomenon that happens all by itself.  The moment you start getting involved with ‘wanting to go to sleep’ you are activating your stress response and this will prevent the natural process. I like to go to sleep listening to something relaxing or even educational – the voice has to be calming, I might even listen to something I have recorded.  I sometimes listen to an audio book on a 30 minute timer which also works well for me.  I also have a Collection of techniques which I dip into and share with my clients.  I have summarised which techniques work for myself and my clients pretty much 100% of the time.
  2. It is suggested that having a routine is one of the best ways to get your sleep on track.  Sticking to the same time can help your body prepare for rest.
  3. Prepare by not having caffeine after 3pm.  Ideally spend a hour or two before bed relaxing.  Turn off blue-light emitting devices such as your phone, TV, tablet or laptop an hour before bed.  If you’d like to explore listening to a relaxation hypnosis at bedtime, make sure the light on your device is covered.
  4. Studies have shown that a course of hypnosis, mindfulness or meditation can lead to a better night’s sleep. To help my clients get back into a healthy sleep routine, I have created a complimentary DEEP PEACEFUL SLEEP HYPNOSIS mp3.  If you would like to beat sleeplessness and insomnia with hypnosis, then email me at suzi@rapid-health.co.uk for access to your free sleep hypnosis audio file.

3 Top Tips for Stress-relief

Anxiety-relief, Stress/Anger Management sessions are available in Birchington & Whitstable, Kent and Harley Street, London W1.

If you have been put off meditation in the past, I would prefer you read the following with an open mind.  In fact, I would prefer you to think of the following technique as a stress relief strategy.  Meditation isn’t just about slowing the brainwaves, it is conclusively proven to boost your energy and vitality significantly.  Hormones re-balance, mood improves and relationships improve.  Whilst quietening the mind for a few minutes each day, you will be able to look back at the cumulative benefits in surprising ways.   Occasionally a moment of bliss, an inspiration or a higher state of consciousness becomes available to you.  Higher states of consciousness simply feel like freedom…freedom from the mind’s usual identity, nagging fears and concerns.

Tip 1.  Releasing negative emotions:  Deep relaxation is possible for everyone.  Become aware of any uncomfortable feelings in your body.   Sit calmly with them in a state of acceptance as you allow them to release.  All emotions that feel uncomfortable are caused by disruptions in your energy system that you have the power to release.   If you just sit still with an intention to allow the emotion to pass… it will.

Tip 2.  Yoga Breath:  Take Three conscious breaths. Allow yourself to focus on your breath and just notice inhaling and exhaling through the nose.  Inhale…pause and exhale.  For the first three breaths, push your breath all the way out.   The breath out stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax.

Tip 3.   Taoist Meditation Technique:   This is a fun Taoist technique that I personally use a lot.  Direct your focus back into the centre of your brain as if looking out through that space between your eyebrows.  Imagine you are a little Buddha sitting crossed-legged on a bed of cushions in the centre of your brain behind your eyebrows.  This stimulates the pineal gland, responsible for higher states of conscious.  If thoughts intrude, repeat a mantra such as ‘release and let go’.

The body can only take so much tension and stress before the body gives you a warning.  There are now hundreds of scientifically documented benefits, too numerous to mention here, that recommend meditation to support and maintain vibrant health and wellbeing.

Testimony from David Lynch:  “It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within.  This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness” And this level is deep within us all.”
