The Importance Of Enough Sleep
“I think if you have a good night’s sleep, you can take on the world.” – Tamsin Egerton
Why Sleep Is Important
Getting a good night’s sleep always makes you feel better. What a lot of people don’t realize is that the importance of sleep is not just about putting you in a better mood, or getting rid of those dark circles under the eyes. Getting adequate sleep is a significant part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and among other things, it can also benefit your mind, your heart, and even your weight.
Ever wondered why your children are sometimes misbehaving? While other factors may be at play, a big contributing reason may simply be that they are not getting enough sleep. According to a Reuters Health article from March 16, 2017, lead author, Dr. Elise Taveras told the publication: “Children who aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep have more difficulties with attention, with emotional control, with reasoning, with problem-solving, and also have behavioral problems.” What is also important to remember is that adults need their sleep just as much as kids do.
Sleep Can Affect Weight
Regarding your weight, the same areas of your brain control sleep and your metabolism. In a March 4, 2018 story on Health.com, University of Chicago researchers noticed that people trying to lose weight lost similar amounts of total weight regardless of how much sleep they were getting. However they found that: “…dieters who were well rested lost more fat—56% of their weight loss—than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass. Dieters in the study also felt more hungry when they got less sleep…When you are sleepy, certain hormones go up in your blood, and those same hormones drive appetite.” This is significant evidence to make sure you’re getting enough sleep if you’re trying to lose weight, and it’s one of the things I stress with my weight loss hypnosis clients.
When you aren’t getting the right amount of slumber, you can become careless at work, grumpy in your relationship, your health can decline, and overall you just don’t feel right.
How Hypnosis Can Treat Sleep Disorders
While there may be other health issues at play, one of the biggest factors for ensuring a restful sleep, is simply reducing the stress and fears in your life. Using hypnosis, I help clients learn to relax, thereby enabling them to let go of the “things on their mind” so that they can have a better night’s sleep. The incredible changes clients notice when they are going with the flow and relaxing are evident in many areas of their lives—but most notably when they sleep.
Improving your sleep is just one of the many issues with which hypnosis can help. And whether you are looking to stop smoking, build your confidence, fix a performance anxiety, or lose weight, hypnosis is an incredible tool to assist you in reaching your goals. It’s safe, painless, relaxing, and a lot of fun!
I offer a free consultation screening to every client to assess whether hypnosis is going to work for them, and also if they are ready for hypnosis.
