Have you, your family, or a friend ever had difficulty sleeping?

For years, I’ve struggled with going to sleep and remaining asleep. I would lie awake for hours, agonizing over my “To Do” list or tasks I hadn’t completed.

Robin Van Auken Get a Great Night's SleepDrift Off to Sleep

I’ve found a solution that works for me, and it’s been working for more than six months. It’s similar to guided meditation. It’s called self hypnosis.

Get a Great Night's Sleep

I’ve become a fan of this type of routine, ever since the team at Uncommon Knowledge helped me achieve a great night’s sleep.

I’ve achieved this by combining two things: a comfy headband with flat earbuds —  AcousticSheep SleepPhones Classic Sleep Headphones* — with the Uncommon Knowledge self-hypnosis downloads,* I’ve been able to go to sleep within minutes, and most important, stay asleep.

If I wake up in the middle of the night and start tossing and turning, I’m able to restart the audio easily. Since the company has an app, I use my mobile phone, keeping it on my nightstand. The earbuds plug into my mobile, and they have a nice, long cord. I keep the cord tucked under my pillow.

Ignore Snoring and Sleep All Night

Sleeping with a person who snores? Not that I snore, nor my husband, (okay, we both do), but sleeping with someone who snores can leave you restless and frustrated. Many a morning I’ve woken after a fitful night, and when my cheerful husband asked how I slept, I would give him the “Stink Eye.” I would growl and retreat to my office and try to drown my frustration and desire for revenge in coffee.

Not anymore. In fact, Ignore Snoring* was the first download I tried, and it helped so much, I moved on to the Sleep and Dream* downloads. I told my daughter about this technique, and she’s excited to try it, too. Now she can get a great night’s sleep!

Visualize Your Day

Not only am I able to go to sleep and sleep well, whenever I wake up, I can select a self-hypnosis audio that helps me prep for the day. Some of my favorites are the Solution-Focused therapies*. There are a variety I use, depending upon my plans or goals. The technique works best when you listen to a specific audio every day for a week. And, if you listen early in the morning, and drift off back to sleep, don’t worry! You’ve accomplished two things — your subconscious has “heard” the audio and you’ve gotten some extra rest.
