Sleep is important, as we all know. We need sleep to feel energised the next day and to help our bodies repair and recover.
Sleep is also important for brain health.
In this article, (posted on wired.com) the statement “Sleep is actually a very distinct function” resonated with me strongly. I remember when I was recovering from my stroke that I needed plenty of sleep. I understood sleep was important to enable my damaged brain learn to cope and start rerouting signals around the damaged area. I embraced sleep and accepted its purpose.
It has also been suggested that people who have long term sleeping problems are more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other brain based diseases.

This time of year it's very common to feel overwhelmed.
It could be due to how much was given to you during the festive season or it could be to do with how much YOU gave. Quite often it can be due to financial worries, after spending more in December how can I pay the bills in January?
This article from the Havard Business Review gives helpful tips that can assist you with coping better during this time.
One of the tips is to Challenge your assumptions. It explains that by focusing on failure this only helps you feel worse and by doing so it could be easy for it to spiral out of control and lead you into a full anxiety attack or depression.
This is where Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is so good. SFH helps you focus on the solution instead of the problem. It helps you come up with a plan to help move forward instead of staying where you don't want to be. It helps you see hope instead of despair.
If you feel you need some help and you think SFH will help you, please get in touch.
Happy New Year.
