The sleep solution to insomnia sleep symptoms - get perfect deep unbroken sleep
The good news is that you can resolve insomnia by treating the underlying cause, so you can usually get better with simple yet effective techniques you can do yourself at home.
The primary cause for insomnia is often stress, anxiety and worry. You may feel concerned about a situation, a difficult day ahead, or actually the fear of not getting enough sleep, which can end up being a perpetual cycle. This stress and anxiety can come in many different forms, sometimes you may not even be able to figure out what is causing it.
The first step towards getting good sleep is to understand why you’re not sleeping. If your insomnia is due to environmental/external issues, such as noisy neighbours or an uncomfortable room, think how you can make your sleeping area as peaceful as possible.
Treat insomnia sleep symptoms by changing your sleep habits:
You are what you repeatedly do:
One of the guiding principles of Rapid Transformational Therapy™, and why it is so effective at getting to the root cause of any issue, is that it uses the most phenomenal power on the planet - your mind. Learn to get your mind working for you, not against you, for better sleep.
The power of your mind:
It’s worth remembering that your mind does what it thinks is in your best interest and it learns through repetition.
It takes up to 21 days to completely let go of an old belief and create a new one. That is why sticking to a bedtime routine is so important, you need to train your body and mind to release old habits and replace them with new positive behaviours.
What we have to remember is that our minds are wired to keep us alive.
Fear, anxiety and stress activate an alert state, which is essentially activating your autonomic nervous system, making you feel very awake and ‘on edge’. When this happens, falling into a deep unbroken sleep is going to be very difficult for you to achieve. Your subconscious mind is telling you: ‘I could be in danger. I need to be alert,’ so it doesn’t want to go to sleep for your own safety.
You need to teach your subconscious that it’s okay to relax and to sleep. It’s time to switch off what’s keeping you awake at night and replace it with perfect deep unbroken sleep.
Wouldn’t it be good if you could be so relaxed at bedtime that when your head hits the pillow, you almost immediately and effortlessly fall into a deep, restful slumber? The following day you wake up happy, refreshed and full of enthusiasm for the new day ahead.
Perfect Unbroken Deep Sleep is designed to do exactly that. A relaxing hypnotic audio you can listen to, as part of your bedtime routine for 21 days, to be free of insomnia and enjoy refreshing sleep, easily and effortlessly.
Teach your mind that you don't need to feel alert at bedtime.
Wake up feeling refreshed and revived each morning.
Completely natural - there's no need to put unnatural chemicals in your body.
