Christopher Fitton - How to Get Better Sleep for a Better Life (with Guided Hypnosis-Meditation)
Show Notes

In this special episode, we put Slo Mo theory into practice with a live, guided meditation by the amazing Christopher Fitton to relax and rejuvenate you. Consider it our little gift to help you brave the holiday madness.

Christopher Fitton is a clinical hypnotherapist and advocate for the therapeutic power of hypnotherapy. When world-wide lockdowns occurred, Christopher felt a strong calling to help the millions of people who could not sleep. He released his podcast, Sleep Cove, which now has over 25 million downloads. The podcast’s premise is simple: help listeners get a great night's sleep thanks to relaxing sleep hypnosis, guided sleep meditations and bedtime stories. 

This episode is as cozy as it sounds. We begin with a short conversation on the importance of sleep and Chris' top tips for improving your sleep hygiene and routine, and end cap it off with a hypnotic meditation that almost instantly relieved me of my jet lag (I recorded this in Miami after a 12 hour flight).

Warning: Do not listen while driving or engaging in any other activity requiring focus. The meditation begins at minute 29:00, so feel free to stop the podcast and come back to it when you're in a comfortable place.

Listen as we discuss:

  • How and why Chris started Sleep Cove.
  • Alarmingly, 25% of people suffer from sleep deprivation since the pandemic started.
  • We need to see sleep as a routine and obligation that cannot be ignored.
  • The difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and why neither is pseudoscience.
  • Chris' top tips for good sleep hygiene and a solid sleep routine.
  • A live, guided hypnosis meditation that will melt your stress away.
