Do you want to be able to sleep well at night – perhaps you’re considering Better Sleep Hypnotherapy?
Usually something has occurred to disrupt your sleeping patterns. Are you worried over work, relationships or career, and unable to switch off and get a good night’s sleep? Or, perhaps you’ve suffered depression and found this has affected your sleep.
For those who have suffered stress and depression I will briefly explain the link between depression and Insomnia . People who suffer depression often report anxiety and broken sleep patterns. The anxiety may be related to private life or work issues. Both depression and Insomnia may have links to a disruption in body rhythms. For example, worry can produce a troubled mind and in turn, a shortened sleep time. When sleep is under 6 hours a person is less likely to awake feeling relaxed and refreshed. There is considerable academic information on the net detailing this.
The link between Insomnia and depression becomes clearer in that the absence of a sound sleep pattern with control over unwanted negative thoughts means insomnia may trigger depression (through changing brain chemicals and body rhythms).
With Better Sleep Hypnotherapy you could learn a new easy plan for a good night’s sleep.
People often report symptoms in experiencing a continual and unwanted inner dialogue expressing repeated worries and fears – and they feel unable to switch this off. These fears then alert and arouse the individual to a state of anxiety, which in turn, produces muscular tension and a shortened and irregular breathing. Another issue with Insomnia is that people often present with other symptoms such as muscular aches, unwanted habits, headaches or IBS.
