A Sleep Mindset

Get sleep back on track and improve energy levels

Does it take you longer than 30 minutes to fall asleep? Do you spend more than 25% of your night awake? Do you wake up earlier than you need to? Do you feel tired when you get up? Do you lack energy even when you have had a good night’s sleep?

Today as a nation we sleep 7h 15m on average which is about 1 hour less than we did 20 years ago, a shift that is easily explained with lack of physical exercise and increased use of screens at the top of the list.

We may feel we can function perfectly well with the amount of sleep we get, catching up at weekends or on holiday. However, at some point in our lives most of us will feel we are not getting enough of the right quality of sleep and for some of us sleep deprivation can disrupt and ultimately damage our physical and mental well-being.

Sleeping disorders, whether occasional or chronic are caused by a myriad of factors and no one has exactly the same experience.

The techniques used in sophrology to target this increasingly common area are simple and easy to integrate into our daily routine.  As we explore where we hold onto tensions in our body and learn to release them we also trigger a calming response in our minds. As we quieten our minds our bodies remain relaxed for longer and this whole process has a positive effect on how we feel during the day and on how we sleep at night.

We will work together on the following:

  • Understanding our sleep needs and what happens when we sleep
  • Sleep ‘hygiene’ and how we prepare for sleep the moment we wake up.
  • Tailor-made relaxation techniques to restore the delicate mind-body balance that is so vital for sleep quality.
  • Specific visualisations to help restore quality sleep and boost energy levels. (These may be recorded for use at home)
  • Flash naps vs power naps – when and how to use them
  • Getting rid of the fear and anxiety surrounding sleep and rediscovering the joys of bedtime!
