Stuff I use to get to sleep and beat insomnia.
Using EFT NLP Hypnosis and common sense.
Sometimes in my life I have had insomnia when I could not get to sleep and tossed and turned and just could not relax. At other times it was caused by pain or illness and that changed the equation and what I did about it.
At other times it was caused by worry and anxiety or grief when someone had died. Then there was sleepless nights capused by environmental factors.
What ever the cause I made a decision that how I responded to it was up to me and I could learn what I had to do to overcome the problem. In the beginning it sometimes took a while as I had to heal or many other changes needed to be made first but later it became very quick.
Only last night I went to bed and my mind was racing and for about five minutes I could not get comfortable and tossed and turned.
I decided to do something about it and used a technique I had not used for a while. Next thing I remember was waking up this morning. With the right attitude and practice you can get to sleep that fast.
As with many things in life you have to do or learn stuff, sorry guys when it comes to your relationship with you, often we have many things to learn and do. However the only person who is constantly with you is you.
So learning how to become your own best friend and learning to enjoy and play and direct yourself is the most important thing you will ever learn. Your brain, your thoughts, your emotions what you do or choose not to do you are responsible.
You will find links to other pages that go through very effective and proven techniques that I have used down the years to fix insomnia, sleepless nights and sleep problems. In every case I did stuff or learnt how to do stuff. Now its fast and very easy to overcome problems with sleep.
The first technique I go through many seem long winded, but it took about five-seconds to do. If the skills needed seam to much effort. Then toss and turn. You, after all only spend about a third of your life in bed. Learning to sleep well is as important as the most important things in you life.
Your quality of sleep will effect all arrears of your life including your health and relationships, not only with yourself, but work, children partners, your sex life and will impact on almost every facet of your existence.
On this web site I like to tell it as it is. Below are some links to other pages where I go through techniques or combinations of techniques that I use to get to sleep easily at night, or during the day.
If I have to work through the night to get work done I will do it. So sometimes I will sleep while you are awake. I have learnt to take cat naps and of course learnt to function at a very high level when for whatever reason sleep was not possible.
So what do I use and how do I do it?
So what happened last night? Well, I had had a fun day and was excited about what I am going to do today, so went to bed excited and not really tired. My mind was not in sleep mode. I spent a few minutes attempting to get comfortable and was unable to.
First off, common sense.
Recognising the reality of the situation, change or fix what you can and what you can't change, change your emotional responses to.
I turned off the excitement and began to slow down the voice in my mind, any one with a basic knowledge of NLP can do this. Learning how to quickly change your internal dialogue and shift states can fix many problems especially confidence and self esteem issues.
Then all I said to myself was.
"OK it's now time to begin to fall easily asleep, I wonder if I can fall asleep before I get to one?"
I started to count backwards from ten and blacked out and woke up this morning. OK I am excellent at self hypnosis and my subconscious mind is a very good friend, so it is a bit easer for me. However, you can learn to do the same. In this case I used self hypnosis, embedded commands, presuppositions. It was simple and effective.
Falling asleep with practice can be this easy if you would like to learn how just give me a call.
