Do You Suffer from Sleep Problems?
I now offer the Peaceful Sleep Programme which is comprehensive programme to help people find a long term solution to their sleep problems.
All of what I do is about using your ‘mind’ through the power of meditation and sound therapy. This allows you to take control back over your sleep rather than rely on some external forces like sleeping pills or other therapies.
I used to suffer the misery of sleep problems for over 10 years. Although meditation was the only treatment that worked long-term for me, I did find some information I received from a sleep doctor about Sleep Hygiene very useful.
So I like to share this type of information with my students. Below are 10 top tips for Good Sleep Hygeine. You can find all the details of this in an article from Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School by clicking here. 12 Tips to Improve Your Sleep
- Avoid Caffeine, Alcohol, Nicotine, and Other Chemicals that Interfere with Sleep
- Turn Your Bedroom into a Sleep-Inducing Environment
- Establish a Soothing Pre-Sleep Routine
- Go to Sleep When You’re Truly Tired
- Don’t Be a Nighttime Clock-Watcher
- Use Light to Your Advantage
- Keep Your Internal Clock Set with a Consistent Sleep Schedule
- Nap Early—Or Not at All
- Lighten Up on Evening Meals
- Balance Fluid Intake
- Exercise Early
- Follow Through
Some of these tips will be easier to include in your daily and nightly routine than others. However, if you stick with them, your chances of achieving restful sleep will improve. That said, not all sleep problems are so easily treated and could signify the presence of a sleep disorder or clinical sleep problem. If your sleep difficulties don’t improve through good sleep hygiene, using relaxation techniques or practising regular meditation, then you may want to consult your physician or a sleep specialist.
