If you are interested in peak performance, whether for life, sales or athletics sleep has everything to do with it.
The average person requires from six to eight-hour restorative sleep each night. There are those who get along with as few as four hours sleep. There are several depths of sleep, but it is not the purpose to either define or discuss all the ramifications of the different levels of sleep other than the deepest level of rest and restoration.
The deepest level of sleep is characterized by the Delta brain wave pattern (0-4 cycles per second), that is both dreamless and restorative. There are credible studies (http://www.sleep-journal.com/article/S1389-9457%2808%2970013-3/abstract) that indicate that a lack of restorative night sleep in the Delta brain-wave pattern or slow wave sleep (SWS) may also be responsible for obesity and type II diabetes. Within the last 50 years or so lifestyles have changed, stress levels have increased, and sleep patterns have been disrupted. Restorative sleep also affects the heart rate, blood pressure, sympathetic nervous activity, and the release of beneficial hormones while restricting stress hormones.
Some studies suggest that Delta waves in the human brain are inhibited by alcohol and are produced by a low carbohydrate diet. While diet alone will not ensure a good restorative night sleep you may have to be one of the rare individuals can fall asleep and stay asleep during the night.
Other ways to achieve a restful sleep include the use of either over-the-counter or prescription drugs. With either the use of over-the-counter or prescription drugs, it may either be wise or required that a medical professional monitor the effect of drugs on the person taking them. One of the most notable side effects of drugs is what I call “the morning hangover.” The admonition that many sleep medications have is to refrain from the use of machinery until your body adjusts to drugs.Another way to achieve a good restorative sleep is by using hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural experience that is common to all human beings. Hypnosis has no side effects, no overdose possibility, and no medical supervision necessary.
If you are an athlete, salesperson, or simply someone who wants to improve their health and personal performance, then it is imperative that you get that deep sleep. While you can do certain things to encourage that restful, restorative sleep by way of diet or a sleep-inducing environment you may also need to use drugs or hypnosis to create the optimum sleep cycle.
Your health depends on a good night’s rest. If you aren’t getting the restorative rest your body needs you may be opening yourself to illnesses, premature aging, and disease. Your immune system may not be able to fight off viruses and infection.
How do you get the sleep you need? You can use drugs. OTC sleep aids such as Valerian and St. John’s Wart, or prescription drugs as prescribed by a medical professional. Or – you could download a restorative sleep MP3. You can use this recorded session every night as long as you wish. I recommend listening to it at least 10 nights in a row, but you can continue as long as you desire. While drugs are an ongoing expense, I am offering my restorative sleep hypnosis recording to you at no cost to use as long as you wish.
