Are You in the Insomnia Rut? Learn Self Hypnosis Techniques and Get a Good Night’s Sleep!

“O gentle sleep! Nature’s soft nurse.” – William Shakespeare


Does it escape you?

Do you need “nature’s soft nurse” to “knit up the raveled sleeve of care”?

Unfortunately, for nearly 40% of Americans, this time is usually filled with tossing, turning, and frequent waking. These are textbook symptoms of insomnia, the most common sleep disorder in the United States.

With some easy changes in both the sleep routine and daily life, your night time can return to it’s original purpose.

Stress is the leading cause of sleep disorders. After an exhausting day, the paradox of sleeplessness can be extremely frustrating. This is where some simple visualizing, self-hypnosis and even music can help you induce sleep.

Is your brain still wired up after a long stressful day?

Many times, sleep is difficult because it seems impossible for you to “turn off” the brain. This is es pecially likely if a big event happened that day or will happen the following day.

Do you often find yourself planning the following day in your head or worrying about things you may have forgotten?

Here’s how to turn off your brain.

Turning off your brain begins with deep breathing.

Next, relax your muscles, focusing on one limb or area of the body at a time. It is especially important to make sure your face is completely relaxed, as you often tighten the eye area when trying to force sleep.

You can find an excellent pre-sleep self hypnosis script on my website.

After your body is relaxed, your mind must be cleared. This is most easily done by visualizing the events of the day as they leave the body.

A way to accomplish this is to inhale an event, and force it out of your mind with the exhale.

The repeated whispering of a short word or mantra can also induce sleep. “OMM” is a very effective and common mantra. I f visualization and self-hypnosis seems difficult, soft music specifically designed for sleep can also help.

Abstaining from eating in the evening and reducing caffeine and sugar levels will also help with sleeplessness, as they will reduce your digestive activity and energy.

You also want to avoid exercise before you go to bed, as it stimulates your brain.

Sleep is the reason the world functions, and sleep deprivation can lead to serious physical and psychological problems. If you think that something is medically wrong, see a sleep professional.

With the use of these techniques, years of peaceful nights await you.

“Then let us fly upon the wings of sleep”. August Strinderg
