1 Get up earlier,
2 Go to bed when you're tired,
3 Don't watch tv in bed,
4 Get up if you can't sleep,
5 Don't take naps during the day.
However, there are new tips, like not taking caffeine after 2pm; at first I found this was bringing on headaches, but it just goes to show one can become addicted to something without realising it! You are also advised to not eat 3hrs prior to retiring, in order for the digestive process to settle down.
There are also pragmatic approaches to the things that disturb your sleep, ie, worry, noise, light and temperature.
Paul suggests you sort out your worries during the day, so that intrusive thoughts, whether good or bad, don't disturb you at the 'wrong' time.
I wish I could comment on the content of the hypnosis cd, but I've drifted off before hearing much of it!
I haven't awarded the full 5 stars because there are still occasions when I am woken in the night,but I find the exercises for returning to sleep hard to focus on.
Robert Lumsden wrote in the book 23 Steps to Success and Achievement: The Dynamic Plan That Will Change Your Life; 'sleep comes easiest unsought; cultivate indifference to it'.
After all, if you make a big deal of not sleeping you get, as Paul says, 'more of what you focus on'.
Anyway i bought it and transferred the CD onto my MP3 player in January after 3 sleepless nights, the second night i'd taken a popular herbal sleeping tablet, and the third i'd taken a regular sleeping tablet, all without success.
I listened to it and the first time i found his voice amusing, it both relaxed me and made me giggle a bit.
Anyway i listened again and fell asleep before the end.
I continued to use it for the rest of that week and slept without any problems and then stopped using it but whenever i've suffered insomnia since i've listened to the CD and it's always worked for me so far.
Don't know how it works but it does for me, and it's cheap enough to be a risk-free purchase for anyone.
Must admit i was sceptical about it before i bought it but i'd certainly recommend it to anyone, the CD at least!
One point was not labelling yourself - as I was beginning to do - as an 'insomniac'.
Another tells you how to clear your mind of those unwanted thoughts when you go to bed - brilliant.
And also - so enormously helpful to me - how to go back to sleep when/if you wake in the night - what sometime took me hours was remedied straight away.
I did listen to the CD for a couple of nights - and it was great, but - after reading the book - I found it was not necessary!
Instead of going from day to day like a zombie I now get up as soon as I wake up and surprise myself by being am out of the house late morning instead of late afternoon. All this happened in less than a week can you believe.
It has changed my life completely. Bliss.
