There's nothing worse that knowing that you are tired and yet not being able to sleep. It's more than just frustrating. It is debilitating, especially the following day when you are just not up to doing all the things that you need to do. Neither your body nor your mind are up to par.
There are many different patterns that can be familiar to the insomniac. Some people have trouble getting off to sleep and lie awake for hours wishing that sleep will finally overtake them. Others fall asleep relatively easily, but awaken after a very short while and then awaken feeling wide-awake and wishing that they did not.
There are many tips and tricks that I am sure you have tried to help you to get off to sleep and stay asleep. Herbs under pillows, hot baths, warm drinks, no drinks, different diets, more exercise and counting sheep are but a few of these and they do work for some fortunate people, although sadly not for others.
Then there are other insomnia cures that offer a more medically based solution. Sleeping pills or anti-depressants or anti-anxiety drugs are frequently prescribed. Once again, sometimes they work and other times they do not. Complementary therapies offer another range of cures.
In truth, it is worth pursuing each and every possible cure until you find what works for you. The fact is that we are all unique and individual and even though many people might all suffer from insomnia the reasons for this and the ideal cure will differ accordingly. What works for one person may not work for another and vice-versa.
One of the least considered insomnia cures that is ironically perhaps as easy (if not easier) to use than any other is hypnosis. There is also a great deal of sound reasoning that supports why it should be one of the most likely methods to be successful in curing your insomnia.
Hypnosis is a natural state. Many people are unfortunately thrown off its track by thinking that hypnosis is merely a stage show gimmick and not realizing that it is a sound therapeutic aid proven in wide range of medical research. I am not alone in maintaining that hypnosis is the most logical aid to try in your pursuit to cure insomnia.
Why so? First, hypnosis is totally natural. Second, it has no negative side effects. Third, it is easy to use simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 download as you lie down in bed each night. These first three are very simple and practical reasons that may indeed to apply to other aids as well.
What is unique about hypnosis though is that it is in itself the state between wake and sleep and so in learning how to use hypnosis you learn how to prepare yourself naturally to sleep. Also more unique to hypnosis is the access that this state provides to your subconscious mind. Your subconscious is the part of the mind that thinks and acts automatically, without logical thought.
With hypnosis you can make suggestions to retrain your brain to expect to sleep and to reinstate good sleep patterns. As I said before, it is easy and it is natural. You can use self-hypnosis easily simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 and simply drift off to sleep as you listen to it. Before long your brain will have been retrained to sleep and even the hypnosis mp3 will no longer be needed.
As I mentioned earlier there are many aids offered to cure insomnia and their efficacy will vary from one individual to another. But if you try hypnosis you will probably find yourself agreeing that it really is a very logical cure for this particular malady.
