“Go to sleep, you have a busy day tomorrow, go to sleep, grr…., ok count some sheep. Its 1am – come on get to sleep!!”
Ever struggled to get to or stay asleep? This can be an awful situation where you are in a terrible pattern of anger, exhaustion and frustration. Essentially stuck between that beautiful restful rejuvenating sleep that you desire and fully awake alert and productive like you would be during the day.
Anyone who has been in this situation knows the awful cycle, the perpetuating cycle of poor sleep and the suffering that can occur because of it. And yet do we do this in our waking hours too? Eating habits? Emotional patterns such as anger, guilt or worry?
What if there was a way to unleash the real you? For instance if you could truly get to sleep when you want, eat nourishing foods and enjoy it and change those emotional patterns to joy, happiness and fulfilment, would you take action? Yes? Well read on now.
Our bodies and our minds are made up of patterns, well-travelled ways of doing things otherwise known as habits and behaviours. Usually we learn a particular way of thinking and this thought pattern can become familiar and easy to execute. For instance, do you have a friend who can sleep on a car, a train or a boat? The friend who will curl up wherever they are and if they are tired they will simply replenish their sleep reserves? They have patterned their behaviours and thought processes to make them an expert sleeper that insomniacs are extremely jealous of!
Our brains respond to circumstances, leading us into routine behaviours, some like the great sleeper we are particularly grateful for and other behaviours we would rather not do such as eating junk foods in large quantities when we have an intention to gain better health. For those well utilised unhelpful patterns, the brain works so quickly to patterned circumstances, we often don’t realize we’re reaching for another packet of chips, until we’re doing it!
There are several very effective Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) techniques that can help you transform your chosen behavioural pattern to a more useful and effective one. Furthermore, your coach will ensure the changes are aligned to your true needs and goals. This means you do not need restraining mind power to change a habit, instead you can make fast radical changes quickly.
