In A Good Night's Sleep, Jan Sadler teaches the skills needed to break the patterns and frustration of insomnia. She explains how to overcome stress and restlessness through meditation and deep diaphragmatic breathing, how to prepare for sleep through positive visualization, and how to quiet mental chatter with awareness and physical techniques such as the Stop/Cancel/Change and Shakeout exercises.
Sadler addresses how to reduce dependence on sleeping pills, determine the amount of sleep you truly need, and, most important, how to retrain yourself to sleep soundly. She provides a two-week sleep diary and shows step-by-step how to identify and analyze any underlying daytime and pre-bedtime habits that can disturb sleep. In addition, the accompanying 65-minute audio CD presents six relaxation and visualization techniques, including Sadler's Peaceful Sleep Bedtime Routine, a 20-minute guided relaxation practice designed to ease one into a deep and peaceful sleep. By revealing the keys to quality, drug-free sleep, A Good Night's Sleep enables you to reclaim control of your sleep cycle and your life.
