How To Get A Better Nights Sleep

Hello everyone, today I want to talk about sleep. Regular readers of this blog and people who follow me on Twitter will know that I don’t find the whole sleeping malarkey very easy.

I suffer from two distinctive sleep issues. Insomnia and a snoring husband. The snoring husband problem is itself two-fold. Sometimes Mr A snores because he’s been drinking. Those evenings arn’t  a problem due to a new by-law in the kingdom of Abrahams that states self-induced snorers must sleep on the sofa.


Yet there are times when Mr A’s snoring isn’t alcohol related, and I can’t ask him to sleep on the sofa all the time. So some nights I don’t get to sleep until he goes to work.   As you can imagine this isn’t ideal,  so I’m always on the look out for things that can either reduce the snoring or aid my sleep.

Recently I came across a company called Hypnosis Ninja.

This is what I think a Hypnosis Ninja looks like

I was intrigued by the frankly awesome name, so decided to take a look. Hypnosis Ninja produce hypnosis sessions available via digital downloads. They offer sessions on a huge range of behaviours. Everything from Stop Smoking to Accepting Your Penis Size.

Among the sessions on offer are several related to sleep conditions. There were two that  related to the sleep problems I have. Curing Insomnia was one I saw. On the face of it this one was the obvious option to choose. But because I had never used any form of hypnosis  and was unsure how well I would get on with the session,  I decided to go with something a bit different for my first session. So the one I chose was Ignore Snoring.

What is hypnosis and how is it achieved in these sessions?

I have always thought of hypnosis very much along the lines of what I have seen on telly. Guys with swinging pocket watches and people being made to do ridiculous things on stage. In practice hypnosis can be achieved without people becoming totally unconscious of what’s happening to them.  The Hypnosis Ninja site describes hypnosis as

 “Simply a way of describing a state of relaxed concentration. During hypnosis your unconscious mind will, with gentle guidance, take over the process of change from your conscious mind”.

The  sessions use a mix of traditional hypnosis techniques alongside New Code Neuro-linguistic Programing. Now I must confess that I don’t know exactly what that is, but it sounds impressive.

How did it work?

One of my biggest concerns about the sessions were the fact that they are all audio. I have moderate hearing loss, so can find it really hard to understand audio recordings. I was very pleased therefore to find the voice on the recordings very clear and easy  to hear.

The instructions advise you not to listen while driving or working heavy machinery. It is possible to listen to them at night when going to sleep.

The recording lasted less that 20 minutes. During that time I was aware of everything that was going on around me but was very chilled.

Did it work?

This is obviously the big question. I am prepared to say yes I think it has worked. Mr A has currently got a cold and his snoring is quite bad. It has been a week since I first listened to the Ignore Snoring session and although I’m aware of his snoring when I get into bed, it hasn’t stopped me getting to sleep.

There are several other sessions that I’m thinking about trying im the future including the Curing Insomnia one. Each session costs just £9.99 and can be downloaded to any device and listened to as many times as required.

Have you ever tried hypnosis to overcome an unwanted behaviour? If you were to use hypnosis in the future, what sort of sessions would you like to try?

    Ooh, this is really interesting. I used to be a complete insomniac but for some reason since my second child I can fall asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow, I have never done that in my life. Glad to hear this worked for you, may have to get one for my long suffering mum. I’d be interested in finding out what other programs they have too x

    This sounds really good! I also have a snoring husband and a tendency to wake between 4 and 5 every day. I’ve used a hypnosis download for my claustrophobia and it has definitely taken the edge off it!

    I have heard of people using hypnosis as a way to cure their sleep issues. This sounds like it’s working for you and that’s awesome! I always say that we all have to do what works for us. It’s the key to happiness and longevity in my opinion. Happy sleeping Tracey and thanks so much for hosting #mondaystumble

    Im a terrible sleeper but I think mine is hotmone related…. actually lack of hormone related! I’m trying Nytil which has helped a bit. I may try hypnosis though as the constant tiredness is hell frankly! #mondsystumble

    I can totally sympathise with the snoring husband – I could cheerfully throttle mine sometimes #coolmumclub
