A Guided Meditation for Peaceful Sleep

mala-meditation643

Nights without sleep are painful and torturous. You try hard not to look at your clock or phone, knowing that the amount of time you have to sleep is getting shorter and shorter. "If I fall asleep now, I'll get five hours of sleep. If I fall asleep now I'll four hours of sleep." The constant tossing and turning is brutal. The more we think about how we "should" be sleeping, the harder that rest seems to achieve, and we continue to spin in this vicious circle of anxiety and restlessness. 

In those pesky middle-of-the-night moments where we can't seem to stop tossing and turning, it's imperative that we are kind to ourselves. By reminding our brains that sleep is coming, we can turn off our thoughts and ease our way into rest. 

Meditation can be an excellent way to provide focus and distract the brain from unnecessary anxiety. If you find yourself suffering from insomnia, or need helping winding down before heading to bed, try this meditation. The soothing voices and gentle encouragement confirm that everything is okay. Rest is coming...just play the below video, softly close your eyes and breathe deeply.
