About 40 percent of adults in Hong Kong struggle with insomnia. Insomnia is correlated with a lower quality of life, poor mental health, and a lower perception of health. If you struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep or if you do not feel refreshed after sleeping, you might suffer from insomnia. Sleep hypnosis for depression can help.
Breaking the Cycle of Insomnia
A lack of sleep can prompt an immediate inflammatory response from your body. Missing just a few hours of sleep can increase your risk of tissue-damaging inflammation and increase your risk of several serious health problems, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Certain cancers
In other words, the stress and worry that are keeping you awake at night might be posing serious threats to your health as well. With hypnotherapy for sleep and anxiety, you can fight back.
Some experts believe that insomnia is a result of hyperarousal or an inability to relax at the end of the day. In other words, you are so anxious about your day-to-day worries that you end up tossing and turning all night. You spend your night ruminating and worrying and you cannot soothe yourself to sleep at night. Eventually, you might even find yourself worrying about falling asleep. This becomes a negative, self-perpetuating cycle from which you cannot break free. Hypnotherapy for sleep and anxiety helps you break the cycle and get the deep, relaxing, refreshing sleep you need.
Healing Rest with Sleep Hypnosis
Most of us need about 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. If you have insomnia, however, you might not be getting the amount of sleep you need. You might spend some of your precious rest hours awake or worrying about falling asleep. You may even watch the clock and waste precious minutes calculating how many hours you have before you need to be up for work or your daily responsibilities. You spend your time in bed feeling stressed, worried, anxious, and overwhelmed rather than relaxed and ready for sleep. This is wholly unconducive to a healthy sleep environment.
Good sleep hygiene is the foundation of healthy sleep habits and includes:
- Going to bed when you are sleepy
- Having a bedtime routine
- Creating a soothing bedroom environment
- Avoiding caffeine, nicotine, and other stimulants before bed
- Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule
While changing your behavior can help, it might not be enough to overcome your mindset. This is where sleep hypnosis for depression can be especially powerful. Sleep hypnotherapy works subconsciously to change your mind through the power of suggestion. It gently guides you with suggestions and eases you into healthier habits.
Sleep hypnotherapy can not only help you relax and unwind before bedtime. It also gives you a healthy new framework to approach sleep so that you can enjoy deeper, more restful sleep, stay asleep longer, and awake refreshed and ready to face the day. In one study, people who used sleep hypnosis increased the amount of time spent in deep sleep by 80 percent and reduced the time spent awake by 67 percent. You can use sleep hypnosis for depression to completely change your sleeping habits at night and your mindset during the day. Insomnia can take a heavy toll on your physical and emotional health. With hypnotherapy for sleep and anxiety, you can overcome insomnia and related depression and anxiety and get the rest you need.
