Insomnia causes unhappiness and worry and, when it is severe and on-going, depletes vitality and concentration. However it is not an illness - it is a behavioural pattern and one that can be changed fairly easily if you persevere with some practical steps. Insomnia is frequently a symptom of ineffective stress management. The more stressed you become, and the more active your mind becomes in endlessly going over things, the more difficult it is to switch off and get to sleep, to remain asleep, or sleep deeply and restfully. Insomnia can be caused by, or exacerbated by, excessive procrastination. We often procrastinate because of the endless succession of unfinished business that runs through our mind as we try to get to sleep or because we have let matters get into such a mess that we do not know where to begin to deal with them.

How do you use NLP for sleep, and specifically falling asleep? I recently posted 3 videos infused with the latest science of positive psychology, meditation, and sleep research. I paired it alongside the use of NLP, as well as concepts of hypnosis. This video focuses on our ability to solve our problems, and use problem based thinking before we fall asleep. I aim to create a consciousness in this video about how the way we use our brain is completely ineffective, and how NLP can find a solution to this. If the brain is not properly used or directed, then it randomly starts doing things on its own. Usually those things are not effective.
NLP can be a powerful tool for improving your sleep patterns. Clients often ask me for NLP techniques to improve their sleeping patterns or cure their insomnia. I have discovered that figuring out what happens right before my clients go to bed is only part of the puzzle. I usually start asking a lot of questions. The questions I ask are known in NLP as meta model questions, and they give me a good idea what the underlying problem is and what strategies are involved. Here are questions that you should ask yourself, regarding what could have an affect on your sleeping:.
