We need sufficient sleep otherwise we are not able to cleanse the built up toxins within our brains. Scientists are now suggesting there is a link with insomnia and Alzheimer’s.
Long term sleep problems disrupts blood sugar levels and is linked with health conditions such as blocked arteries, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression and suicide.
Here are some Sleep tips:
- Avoid using electrical devices after 9pm or keep the usage down to a minimum as these over stimulate the brain and we finder it harder to wind down.
- Turn down the UV glow on your devices (e.g. mobile phones) as this encourages Melatonin and our brain thinks it’s daytime rather than time to go to sleep.
- Avoid stimulants after 7pm such as alcohol, sugary foods & drinks and drinks containing caffeine – anything that is going to cause a spike in your blood sugar level.
- Keep your bedroom cool with soft lighting and create a regular bedtime routine.
For some people there is a lot more to it than the points listed above. There is actually something in their subconscious mind which is keeping them awake.
Let me share Suzy’s story with you to give you an example of what I mean by this.
Suzy had been suffering with Insomnia for 20 years or more. As soon as she laid her head on the pillow at night to go to sleep, it was like a switch had been flicked and she was wide awake. No matter how tired she was, how busy her day had been, the same thing would happen.
We started to work on changing her bedtime routine and following the sleep tips listed above. I began asking various questions to explore what might be behind the Insomnia from an emotional perspective. That is when it materialized she had experienced something in her childhood which was having a huge effect on her ability to sleep.
When she was a child, her Father would come home late at night from the pub, drunk, very unpleasant and usually an argument would begin between him and Suzy’s Mother.
On one occasion, on a very hot summers night, Suzy was struggling to sleep. She was tossing and turning, unable to get to sleep and could hear an argument in full flow downstairs. All of a sudden she heard her Father thundering up the stairs. He burst into her bedroom and dragged her out of her bed by her hair. He was furious at her for making so much noise – he could hear her bed creaking as she was tossing and turning trying to get to sleep.
Suzy’s subconscious mind (which is the part of our brain where we store our beliefs and emotions) would not allow her to sleep as it did not equate going to bed at night to sleep with being safe. No wonder she couldn’t sleep, right?
Through hypnotherapy and NLP techniques we were able to work on this and very quickly Suzy reported to say she had experienced a VERY good night’s sleep.
