My job has recently been transferred from the UK to an Asian country. With the move from my established position to a new challenging role in a new environment, I suddenly found myself lacking my usual level of confidence...

How to Be The Best Version of Yourself

Posted on Saturday, July 23, 2016 by Positivevoice

A few years ago, i went through a period of deep self reflection. My goal was to discover what made the greatest difference in terms of my ability to be inspired, happy and productive. In short, i was interested in finding out how i could spend as much time as possible in a state of peak performance. I studied various areas of my life over a month or more. I looked at the following activities:

Diet, sleep, personal development, time with friends, time with family, relationship, exercise, relaxation. At the end of all of this, the factor that consistently made the most difference was the duration and quality of my sleep. I was almost disappointed; i had hoped that i would find something more ground breaking. However, i did recognise that whilst sleep was integral, i could achieve greater things still if i slept well and ALSO managed to fit in exercise, eat lots of fresh and healthy food, read something inspiring by a personal development author or have some fun! So you see, sleep for me is the basic necessity. In fact, i could add to that: sleeping well, eating well and taking a little (not too much) exercise formed a great foundation and anything more served to take me to greater heights. If i removed the sleep, everything fell apart, regardless of what else i did. As you may know, i have a little girl, who is almost 3 years old now; her name is Lola. She has always struggled with sleep; not wanting to go to sleep in the first place and then waking up during the night. Things are starting to improve now (thank goodness). When she doesn't sleep well, like me, and perhaps everyone, she is not in the best humour. I recently decided that this had to stop and that i would make a relaxation audio for her. I had used hypnotherapy and positive suggestion with her at bedtime before (to encourage her to stop breastfeeding, for example), so i knew that this could work. So, Lola was my inspiration for this blog and the subsequent hypnotherapy audio that i have made for you! This audio is my gift for you. It is suitable for anyone who needs help getting to sleep or who would like to sleep more deeply or for longer. You can listen to this audio as often as you want, but you will probably find that 2 or 3 times is sufficient. Make sure you are somewhere quiet where you can relax fully- your bed, a comfortable chair with a head rest or sofa would be ideal; make sure you are sufficiently propped up, so that you are not lying flat, however, as the goal is to relax rather than fall asleep.
