Why it’s Important to Stop Snoring
Your snoring doesn’t just disturb your partner’s sleep, it also gives you poor quality, often unrefreshing sleep. If you can actually stop snoring you will get much better quality sleep. So it makes sense to stop snoring.
Help Me Sleep’s Snoring Transformation Programme
It generally, it takes between two and five sessions for me to help you to stop snoring, using a mix of coaching, advice, therapy and teaching you to relax deeply. Here are some key areas we’ll look at:
First of all, What’s Happening in your Daily Life?
Do you have a sleep-friendly lifestyle, or do you have a snoring-friendly lifestyle instead?
Secondly – What about Your Breathing?
Do you always breathe through your nose, night and day? Or maybe you mainly breathe through your mouth? Or perhaps you switch between the two?
You should only breath through your nose, never through your mouth. This is so important for your sleep and wellbeing, and you can even learn to breathe through your nose when you’re asleep. Once you sleep with your mouth closed, it is likely to stop your snoring (unless you snore through your nose too) and give you much better quality sleep.
Thirdly, Do you have Any Breathing-Related Issues?
Perhaps you may have allergies or asthma? They won’t stop you from learning to sleep well and not snore, and it may be useful to do some work with those. You may not know that allergies, hay fever and even asthma tend to be very responsive to Hypnotherapy and NLP.
Fourthly, What about Stress?
Are you very stressed at the moment? Remember back to a time when you were on a holiday, or other time when you were relaxed and unwound. How was your snoring the? It was probably not nearly as bad – unless you were drinking too! It is a fact that when you are stressed your snoring is much worse.
Fifth – Are There Any Upsets in Your Life?
Upsets, worries and traumas – even from the past that might still be playing on your conscious or subconscious mind and stopping you from going to bed feeling calm and relaxed. I can help you let go of them. If you can go to bed feeling calm and relaxed, you’re going to have better quality sleep.
