Preparing To Sleep Checklist
Here is your Preparing to Sleep checklist, so that you can ensure a good night’s sleep so that you can have it at your fingertips.
I personally suffered with insomnia and am happy to inform you that I have resolved it through hypnotherapy and meditation and I know you can too. I always say, that sleep deprivation is one of the worst tortures. Lack of adequate sleep can lead to many issues such as accelerated aging, weight gain, diabetes, memory impairment, imbalances, weakened immune system, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, digestive disorders such as ulcers and constipation…these are just to name a few.
Most adults need between six and eight hours of sleep every night. However, some people need less and others need as many as 10 hours in order to feel at their best. The sleep you require can change depending on your situation at hand. When we are feeling sick or mentally stressed, more sleep is required.
You know your body best, pay attention. So if you feel tired upon waking up in the morning, then you need sleep! That’s the bottom line.
There may be medical reasons as to why you’re not sleeping. As always please consult with your medical doctor to determine them. It’s possible that there may be issues with your adrenal levels, hormonal imbalances such as low progesterone levels, or prescription drugs that can cause sleeplessness side effects. Being overweight can cause sleep apnea and other sleeping issues.
This checklist is divided in 3 parts. One is Creating an Inviting Sleep Environment. Two is Foreplay to Sleep and part three is IN BED
Let’s take each part, one at a time.
Part One: Creating an Inviting Sleep Environment
1.Create an inviting sleep environment one that is as quiet, clutter free, and as dark as you need it to be. Also it must be comfortable especially when it comes to your mattress, bedding, pillow, as well as darkening window treatments. Create a sanctuary, a place that you look forward to retiring at the end of your day and sleeping in it.
2.Movement practices such as yoga, tai chi, or chi gong can quiet the mind.
3.Remove any lighting; even the light from an alarm clock can be distracting. Placing a covering on your clock will not only eliminate light, it will also prevent you from constantly worrying about the time. Use dimmers to regulate lighting in your room. A comfortable eye mask is a great idea to keep any light out, so not to disrupt your sleep.
4.Minimize electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in your bedroom, which are disturbances caused by electronics and wireless devices. Avoid using your cell phone as your alarm clock and turn it off. When listening to this audio set, use a speaker instead of a wired headphone, which can potentially wrap around your neck.
5.Regulate the room temperature to what is ideal for you. Studies show that just below 70 degrees F or 21 degrees Celsius is optimal for sleeping. Using the bedroom for two things and two things only, namely Sleep and sex will help you associate bed with sleep and produce a conditioned response of sleeping.
6.Keep a journal or writing pad by your bedside. This will alleviate the burden of important to do items. Simply write, in the dark if possible, so that you can feel at ease that you’ve written your important items down and do not need to remember them. And give yourself permission to let go of things for now and promising to yourself that you will address these items when you awake.
7.If cold feet wake you up, perhaps wearing socks to bed can be a solution.
8.Keep the same schedule, even on the weekends and your days off. This will help establish a routine and rhythm. It normally takes anywhere from 21 to 30 days to change a habit. So keep up the routine and it will be just a matter of fact.
Part Two: Foreplay to Sleep
1.Establish a regular bedtime routine by turning off all electronics, avoiding over stimulating activities such as work, games, exercising, TV, etc. at least 30 minutes before you start your sleep foreplay. Take a warm bath with soothing music and low lighting, and diffuse, inhale or apply calming aromatherapy 100% pure essential oils like lavender to seduce yourself to sleep.
2.Turn lighting down.
3.If you are sharing sleeping quarters with someone, perhaps you can compromise as best you can. Or find another place to sleep in your house. Sleep is priceless!!!!
4.Avoid eating heavy meals and stimulant foods at least a couple of hours before bedtime so that your digestive system will not wake you up. If you need a snack, a protein snack will help most people since alcohol and caffeinated beverages, sugar and grain snacks can keep you alert and disrupt your sleep.
5.Avoid drinking fluids a couple of hours before bed and empty your bladder right before you lay down so that you will not awaken in the middle of the night with a chance of not getting back to sleep.
6.Orgasm calms you down and relaxes.
Part Three: IN BED
1.Get in your bedroom by 9:30pm.
2.Getting to sleep by 10pm will help you repair physically. It is said that between 10pm and 2am, our organs repair best. Or if you are spiritually oriented, you probably consider sleep from a much higher level and may already know that we start our strongest connection with our Creator between 10 and 11pm. So it’s ideal in either case, to be in bed by 10pm and allow yourself the time needed to doze off to sleep.
3.If you feel guided, invoke your Creator into your process. Praying attracts solutions. I often ask my guardian angels for comfort, guidance, and sleeping soundly throughout the whole night with balance and ease. One of my favorite benefits of sleeping is that it takes us to another dimension or place of consciousness. The phrase, “let me sleep on it” is often used when we need to make an important decision so we then tap into our Higher Power for solutions. The majority of times, we awaken with a decision and we feel good about it!
4.Are you “lined up” the same way with specific points of a compass? Some believe that your body got used to a particular alignment when you were a child, and that if you can return to that alignment, then you will sleep without so many sleep issues. I think that it is certainly worthwhile to give it a try – it can’t hurt – and may help!
5.Chanting mantras or reciting affirmations and/or prayers will create a relaxed state. They can calm the mind, letting the body relax. A mantra is a syllable or group of syllables – sound vibrations – that clear the mind of debris; much as sound vibrations clean jewelry. A popular sound or mantra is OM. In this audio set, use I Sleep, Sleep, Sleep Soundly Now as your mantra and affirmation. After listening to the hypnotherapy track, your subconscious mind, the place where all healing takes place, will have gotten used to I Sleep, Sleep, Sleep Soundly Now, so use it and maximize the benefits.
6.Meditation is a great way to relax your mind, body, spirit and emotions. Using the I Sleep, Sleep, Sleep Soundly Now audio and also my best-selling Serenity, A Suite of Four Guided Imagery Meditations, has put me to sleep countless times. I’ve added a bonus track to this audio set, called Connecting with Serenity, which is only 9 minutes long and one of the tracks from my Serenity Suite. Listen to it when you need to de-stress, regroup, balance, and create peace and serenity in your being.
7.If the above tips are not producing sleep, then it’s possible that you may need to contact a holistic professional like myself to tap into your subconscious mind and get to the root of the issues and peel away the layers. Incidentally, in addition to in-person appointments, I am available in other ways, such as via telephone and Internet communications services, such as Skype.
