That’s why it’s so important to take stress management measures to achieve a deeper and more restful night’s sleep. Most people can learn these techniques, but it usually takes several weeks before they master them enough to relieve insomnia. For a study published in Sleep, researchers reported that hypnosis increased the amount and duration of slow-wave sleep, which suggests that it triggered deeper sleep (it’s worth noting that the study only included 27 people). Sleeping pills may also be used but should be monitored for side effects.
