How Hypnosis Can Help You Have a Restful Spring and Summer
If you feel that daylight saving time disrupts your sleep schedule, you are not alone. According to a 2019 study by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the majority of Americans (55%) feel tired after the spring forward time change. About 14% are “extremely tired” at the start of DST. Fatigue can affect how we function at school, at work, in athletics, in relationships, and more. Despite the time change, hypnosis for sleep can help you enjoy a full night of rest to trigger a more energetic and focused day-to-day life.
More than half of Americans (55%) typically feel tired after the clocks move forward an hour for DST.
Trusting Hypnotherapy for Improved Sleep
Our routines are significantly shifted during DST, which affects our schedules. Because of this, you may find yourself tossing and turning at night, unable to adjust to the time change. For the many struggling to sleep because of daylight saving time, a holistic option is available. Hypnosis for sleep is a mind-body solution that can make a positive difference in your mindset as well as improving your approach to sleep.
Through practices that position your mind to visualize the change you’d like to see, hypnotherapy is an effective approach that can make a beneficial change in attitude, resulting in improved sleeping habits. This may help you to sleep easier, deeper, and longer.
What to Expect in a Session
Hypnotherapy is done through guided sessions. At Hypnotherapy of North Georgia, we conduct our sessions with respect, applying our training and knowledge to give you the best and healthiest results. In most cases, multiple sessions are needed to achieve the long-term results that make a difference in your life.
5 Practical Ways to Regain Your Sleep Schedule
1. Prioritize a Bedtime Routine
Think about how important bedtime is in a child’s life—the same goes for us as adults. We sleep much easier when we establish a bedtime routine. The experts recommend a few habits to adapt for your bedtime routine:
- Have a Calming Activity
Consider incorporating calming elements into your bedtime routine, such as taking a bath or reading a book about an hour before getting into bed.
- Put Electronics Away
Many of us are tempted to check the news or take one last look at social media before sleeping, but studies suggest our looking at electronics can affect how well we sleep. During this downtime, avoid checking your phone or watching TV in the bedroom before bed.
2. Take It Easy
Try to keep your schedule relatively light during this transition period. Georgia and many other states generally have good weather around the time we spring forward, so we may be tempted and inspired to load up our schedules. Let your body adjust to the new schedule before diving head-first into your to-do list and taking exhaustive weekend trips. Ease into the time change and slowly ramp up activities and commitments as you get more energy.
3. Sleep the Same Amount
Adjusting to a new sleeping schedule is no easy task. Daylight saving time essentially gives us jetlag. If possible, try to sleep the same amount after the time change as you normally would. This can include a short 20-minute nap in the middle of the day to help you stay rested, fresh, and energized. That said, don’t overdo it—long naps can lead us to feel groggy and sometimes worse off than before.
