Did you know that most adults don’t get enough sleep at night? Experts recommend a minimum of 8 hours of sleep, and sadly, even though many of us spend that many hours in bed, we fail to properly rest. Tossing and turning with a racing mind can interfere with your ability to fall asleep, and even if you do manage to drift off, you might wake up frequently during the night.
Over time, a lack of sleep can have serious consequences. Your mood, ability to concentrate and your creativity can all suffer due to chronic insomnia, and not getting enough sleep raises your risk of becoming overweight, suffering from endocrine problems and developing many other medical concerns.
There are a number of ways that you can try to get a better night’s sleep. Prescription sleep aids, over-the-counter sleeping pills and herbal sleep remedies are some of the most popular options. Unfortunately, many of these products cause side effects and can leave you feeling drowsy the next morning.
Self-hypnosis is an alternative to medicinal and herbal interventions for insomnia that is safe and all-natural. Read on to learn more about how it’s done.
Step 1: Creating the Right Environment for Sleep.
To be able to benefit from self hypnosis, you need to create an environment that is conducive to relaxation. Take steps to block out the light as much as possible or wear a sleeping mask to keep light out completely. Make sure your cell phone is turned off and that your room is quiet. Put on comfortable clothing and put the temperature in your room at a point that is not too hot and not too cold.
Step 2: Wind Down Your Day.
As you get near bedtime, get yourself in the right mindset for sleep. Avoid the light of computer, television and mobile device screens, which has been shown to contribute to insomnia. Read a book or a magazine. Take a hot bath or sip a cup of herbal (no caffeine!) tea while you quietly reflect on your day. Try to go to bed at the same time ever night and to wake up at the same time every day. This will help to regulate your body’s internal clock, so that you’re ready to sleep at bedtime.
Step 3: Get Into the Best Position.
There is no one best way to lay when it comes time to sleep. As long as you’re in a position that is comfortable and that allows you to deeply relax, you can be successful.
Step 4: Clear Your Head.
To begin self hypnosis for sleep, do your best to quiet your mind. Focus on the sound of your own breathing. When thoughts occur, observe them and redirect your mind to your breathing. Avoid self talk. Just think about the movement of the air in and out of your lungs.
Step 5: Concentrated Relaxation.
Starting with your toes, focus on letting go of tension in your muscles. Move upwards, relaxing your feet and ankles. Next, relax your legs. Imagine your body sinking into the bed beneath you. Continue to move the wave of relaxation over your body, releasing tension in your groin, hips and buttocks, then your waist and lower back, then your chest and upper back. Let the relaxing wave move down your shoulders, over your upper arms, your forearms, wrists and hands. Release tension from every finger, then let your neck and head deeply relax into your pillow.
Step 6: Breathe More Deeply.
Open your mouth slightly, so that you draw in very deep breaths. Imagine yourself following the stream of air into your lungs and out of your lungs. Notice the way your chest expands when you breathe in and how it contracts when you breathe out. Let your breathing consume your thoughts, but breathe naturally. Don’t exaggerate the movements. Just let the air flow.
Step 7: Visualise.
Once you have begun to feel at peace from focusing on your breathing, imagine yourself in a place that is inviting to you. It can be anywhere you desire–real or imaginary. You might imagine a tropical beach, a stretch of unspoiled forest or even a cozy spot in your childhood home. The most important thing is that the place is somewhere that makes you feel safe and at ease. Try to visualise as many small details of the place as you can. The more that you picture the way the place looks, smells, sounds and feels, the better the effects of the self hypnosis for sleep will be.
Step 8: Repeat a Mantra.
When you find yourself feeling relaxed in your visualised world, begin to slowly repeat calming, positive phrases like “deep, peaceful sleep” or “relaxing restful sleep.” Say the words in your mind as you exhale and focus on following the path of your breath when you inhale. By repeating the words over and over again, you can get in touch with your subconscious mind and help to encourage restful sleep. Continue with your self hypnosis practice. Eventually, you will find yourself growing too drowsy to continue. Then, let go and let yourself travel to that place of deep restful sleep.
Don’t get discouraged if you struggle with self hypnosis for sleep at first. It can take time to become good at relaxing and focusing on your mantra. Keep trying, and eventually you will succeed. You can also use self-hypnosis audio recordings to help make the process easier. Hypnotherapy recordings for sleep can be beneficial because they allow you to simply listen, breathe and relax. Many people find it easier to tune out other thoughts when they have something to listen to.
