Deep sleep provides amazing health benefits.
Yet too few people ever actually get any level of quality sleep. Let alone deep sleep.
Instead, many opt to push themselves so hard in life, that the stress they create causes them to remain sleepless at night.
Insomnia is totally dependant on stress. From whatever the source is. Those different things you have causing you stress in life, relationships, studies, health and for the great many, money issues.
All that stress winds up causing even more stress. Due to lack of sleep.
With sleep deprivation knocking on to cause even more issues.
Whatever your stress levels, lack of sleep causes increased levels of Cortisol within your bloodstream. Which leads to all manner of issues for healing, focus, memory, emotions and a great many other things. Counting sheep can help, deep relaxation into delta wave sleep sometimes requires a little more though.
While you may find you put these in a slightly different order. They are absolutely the top four reasons for getting regular deep sleep in the delta wave range.
By actually getting the sleep you are supposed to you massively reduce your experience of stress.
Your mind has time to actually process.
Yes, even when you are asleep your mind is working away. Your unconscious mind that is. Processing events of the day, and also mapping out possible ways forward to get you to where you wish to be. It is clearing through emotions and doing so much more.
So getting into delta wave deep sleep, will have you feeling happier and more positive.
Sleep is when your body does most of its healing. While asleep your mind can direct energy and the passage of nutrients, to where they are most needed. With a degree of ease.
In deep sleep, you do this so much more effectively.
Because your body is constantly repairing itself, this is incredibly useful. Depending on how busy you are in life. Your daily diet. The amount and type of exercise you do. Plus of course the level of stress you experience due to work and other things.
Physical healing is critical to living a happy life.
So getting into deep sleep, right down deep into the delta wave state, brings you massive advantages.
Especially when you are experiencing health challenges.
Insufficient sleep causes major issues with concentration.
This again is due in part to the release of Cortisol. As a part of the stress response, and to increase blood sugar levels, your body releases Cortisol in order to get you through stressful situations. Lack of sleep induces what the unconscious mind, and thus your body, considers a stressful situation.
Unfortunately, one of the issues with Cortisol is that it is a neuroinhibitor.
It blocks a wide range of cognitive function.
So whilst you can still perform. You actually perform at a level lower, in certain cases far lower, than is possible when you are rested and healthy.
As such, getting deep sleep is a way to massively improve your ability to focus. Thus enabling you to achieve more from every waking moment. So you get to squeeze even more quality results from your meditations, work and every other activity you partake of that requires any level of concentration.
With Cortisol being a neuro-inhibitor your memory suffers when you lack sleep.
So just by getting a decent nights sleep, especially in delta wave deep sleep, your memory becomes healthily restored. Thus enabling you to both recall and store memories with much greater ease than when tired or stressed.
Meditation is a powerful practice to get into.
It can seriously change your ability to release stress and promote deep relaxation for yourself.
Things which help you to gain quality sleep, that really deep sleep that properly restores you, with ease. This level of meditation practice can take a while to get to though. It depends on how often you practice, and also for how long in each session.
There are extensions of meditation which bring the benefits with ease as you need them though.
One option is to use a guided sleep meditation.
This basically has you following along with a deep, calming voice which in many ways hypnotically lures you into deep relaxation. With you flowing along and drifting down into a deep sleep as the session progresses.
Potentially even simpler is using sleep music that contains brainwave entrainment.
Sleep music of this nature has the delta waves embedded within the music itself. So as you listen along, the sleep music track has your brain gently flowing down into delta. And thus you naturally just drop down into a deep sleep as the music plays.
There are clear advantages to getting deep sleep regularly.
It transforms your ability to get more from life in an amazing way. Using resources to help you do this, such as the SurgingLife Peaceful Sleep Induction – Music for Sleep, or if you are seeking a voice to help you flow deeper then the SurgingLife deep sleep guided meditation, are resources that offer you a good degree of benefit.
