Are you getting enough sleep?
Only in recent years has the real value of a good night’s sleep been recognized. While healthcare researchers and practitioners have long emphasized a good diet and plenty of exercise, they have promoted good sleeping patterns less often. For many people, waking up once or more often overnight has become an accepted part of life. Yet over time such disturbed sleep can cause long-term chronic disabilities.
The causes of a bad night’s sleep vary; they range from bad habits through to physical conditions and undiagnosed medical problems. To address this serious factor of health, we need to consider sleep as one of three main contributors to overall well-being: diet, exercise, and sleep. Both diet and exercise can impact our sleep patterns by contributing to the bad habits we’ve acquired, whether physical, emotional or social—this can really reduce the value and quality of our sleep.
Many people grind their teeth at night, but are unaware of it until a dentist points it out. That activity alone has a tremendous effect on the quality of sleep. Another common complaint is “restless leg” syndrome, which can range from mildly irritating to almost debilitating, greatly reducing the quality of sleep as well. It doesn’t take much for these and many other problems to have a marked effect on your health and well-being.
So to begin the process of improving your sleep quality, the first step is to take a serious look at your diet—what you eat, when you eat, and how you eat are all critical factors in the processes the body uses for the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Exercise is another key determinant: when to exercise, what type of exercise is best for you, and how frequently should you do it are all important concerns. Understanding your own exercise habits should help to improve them over time, and positively affect your sleep patterns simultaneously for optimal health.
One of the single most important factors of sleep is the amount of mental stress at the time you fall asleep. Taking control of your stress levels will therefore go a long way towards enjoying a good night’s sleep. Here, hypnosis techniques can help: with guidance, you will be able to start the process of lowering your stress level. Combined with appropriate diet and exercise, the whole process of good quality restorative sleep, along with whole body well-being becomes easier to attain.
The sleep quality restoration program I offer will allow you to begin resolving many of these issues. After one comprehensive session you will be able to assess your own progress and from there decide how you wish to proceed. In many cases you will be able to adapt and develop your own good habits to improve your health without further sessions. If you happen to come across persistent conditions that you were unaware of, then these can be addressed on an individual basis.
Before the initial session you will be asked to do some preparatory work to make full use of the session. To find out more about this, or if you have any general inquiries, please feel free to ask for the complimentary 20-minute consultation to discuss these requirements. This can also be carried out over the phone if you prefer, by contacting Satori Health and Wellness to arrange for the consultation.
Remember that a good night’s sleep every night is great for your health, reduces the chance of chronic health problems, and can even slow the aging process in the long term.
