Through spring and into summer, we can all experience being woken up earlier than we would wish by the light and bright of the mornings. But are you waking frequently through the night? Regularly once or more than once perhaps? Sleep issues should be taken seriously and getting checked out with your GP is always advisable to rule out conditions such as sleep apnea, diabetes or prostrate trouble.
Lack of sleep can take its toll in many ways and can have a negative impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. Sleep deprivation can put you at a higher risk of serious medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
At the very least, insufficient sleep can make us feel irritable, lethargic, depressed or anxious. It affects our concentration and decision-making and increases the risk of injury and accident. Increased weight gain can also be a resulting factor.
Hypnotherapy can often help with sleep issues. Hypnotherapy can enable you to learn how to relax more, how to think more positively and how to calm your mind. Perhaps you feel that your mind is always ‘buzzing’ and needs to ‘declutter’. Allowing our brains to process our thoughts more easily and effectively gives us a better chance of a sounder sleep. Ideally, we would all like to think that we can regularly wake up feeling refreshed, much brighter, more energised and ready to take on what the day has in store for us.
