More than one third of adults suffer from insomnia or some other kind of sleep disorder. Left unaddressed, lack of sleep can lead to debilitated health, lowered resilience, and decreased performance in all aspects of life. Restoring hope to the sleepless, psychotherapist Philip Carr-Gomm reveals how we each have the ability to unlock better sleep naturally.
Combining his knowledge of sleep science and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with techniques drawn from spiritual traditions and insights from the emerging field of psychedelic therapy, Carr-Gomm presents a fast and easy-to-follow six-step program to help you sleep better. He explores a multitude of approaches to sleep, as well as sleep difficulties and how to overcome them. He looks at the potential of psychedelic-assisted therapy and microdosing, applying elements of the psychedelic therapy model as a way of optimizing the conditions for sleep. He recommends thirteen natural ways we can drift into a deep and restorative sleep, including hypnotherapy, Yoga Nidra, sophrology, progressive muscle relaxation, and white, pink, and grey noise, and provides scripts for five of these techniques. His successful sleep clinic provides online support in the form of short videos and audio meditations as well as exercises.
In addition to the six-step program, the author guides you in discovering the factors inhibiting a good night’s sleep and explores the difficulties of sleep phobia, sleep-talking, sleep-walking, and “Exploding Head Syndrome.” He also answers questions about the links between sleep and depression, sleep and obesity, and the value of sleep hacking and lucid dreaming.
Helping you get a better night’s sleep, this concise and simple guide shows you how to benefit from everything the night offers to body and soul.
