Stress is Only 5% of The Problem
We think of stress as bad. But there’s good stress (the kind that pushes you to perform well) and bad stress (what feels out of our control and keeps us up at night).
The stressor itself is really only 5% of the problem. Our thoughts about that stressor are the other 95%. How we perceive something “stressful” makes all the difference.
For example, the fact that you can’t sleep is 5% of the problem. The other 95% is your anxiety about sleeping, your worry that you won’t be able to function the next day and your misery of being tired but awake in the night.
Besides using lab testing to find the physical causes of my clients’ insomnia, I also teach them how to control their thoughts about sleep and the stressors in their lives. This mental work is just as important as finding the physical cause. If you don’t change the way you perceive the stress in your life, your hormones won’t get back in balance, your gut won’t fully heal and you won’t permanently get your sleep back. All that stress that led you to not sleeping in the first place will keep your body unhealthy.
That’s why it’s important to look at both the body and the mind when you have insomnia. Sleep coaches address the mental part of insomnia but they don’t look at the body. Doctors treat the physical part with a pill. There’s nothing else out there that looks at both the physical and mental reasons why you can’t sleep, at the same time, in the same program in a natural way. My clients get their sleep back because my program addresses both the body and the mind.
If you’re sick and tired of not sleeping at night and you know deep down that something is wrong, let’s set up a time to chat. During this initial free call, I’ll pinpoint both the mental and the physical reasons why you can’t sleep and tell you exactly how to fix those so you can get the sleep you need. I can’t promise you a great night’s sleep every night (even the best sleepers have some off nights!), but I can promise that I can help you improve your health and your sleep so you start to wake up feeling amazing instead of grumpy and tired.
