The “Five C’s” AT THE ROOT of Most Sleep Problems…

1 December 2010 2 Comments


brother man using computerSome research I stumbled onto yesterday…I was checking out the sales page for Think Right Now Intl.’s “Tranquil Sleep Now” program, and a lot of the points they made made sense.

I have a couple friends with (so-called) “sleeping disorders,” and actually couldn’t sleep AT ALL last night myself, so luckily this article clarifies why. Knowledge this:

———— The “5 C’s” Behind Most Sleep Problems ————

“If you’re like most people, you try to live life all at once and you bring it all with you into bed, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

Experts explain how the five Cs — Change, Conflict, Criticisms, Concerns, and Crises — can burden our lives with unhealthy stress. Any of these factors can ruin your sleep faster than you can say ‘good night.’

Look at what you do when you turn off the lights:

>> You play the day’s events over and over in your mind.
>> You mull over mistakes and disagreements.
>> You think about a deadline racing up.
>> You worry about your kids’ grades.
>> You dwell on PROBLEMS. Money problems. Family problems. Work problems. Health problems. Marriage and relationship problems.

Factor that all together, and it’s no wonder sleep is elusive. As the sleeplessness goes on and on, the frustration keeps mounting up:

>> You soon dread going to bed
>> You feel powerless over your sleep problems
>> You just assume you won’t be able to sleep
>> You don’t know how to relax anymore
>> You can’t get comfortable in bed
>> You resign yourself to being an insomniac
>> You don’t think you’ll EVER get a good night’s rest
>> Your mattress is too hard and the pillows too soft
>> You have terrible nightmares, so “what’s the point?”

But why, with so much on the line, do these issues take over your mind when you’re trying to fall asleep???

It’s just the way we’re wired…

Most of the 50,000 thoughts that pop into your mind every day are AUTOMATIC. They’ve been with you for decades (perhaps even a lifetime) – they’re the by-product of conditioned negative thought patterns that have hijacked your natural sleep processes.

That’s why just saying “STOP!” to yourself won’t do the trick. And blaming yourself because you don’t have any “internal discipline” won’t either…”

The healthiest, most effective way to correct your sleep problems is to change the unsupportive mental patterns (beliefs, thoughts, attitudes) that lurk behind them.

It’s as simple as that…”

    In addition to what you mentioned, the late evening news telecast compound the lack of sleep issues that are rampant by creating worry. Just imagine seeing a preview of the upcoming program prior to the live show – “Something on your dinner plate may be killing you slowly. More at eleven”. Great piece, +B.

    Mental programming is pretty much a factor in EVERYTHING these days.

    To be clear, everything above is just an excerpt from another article I read (something I linked to towards the end). I can’t take credit for the breakdown itself.
