Bedtime meditation is good for calming the mind when life gets a little hectic
Meditation has proven to be one of life’s most helpful practices when it comes to a healthy mind. It not only helps us to unwind from our busy schedules, it relaxes the body, improves focus and can aid sleep. The body needs to be recharged each night with at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep recommended for adults. Without proper sleep, the body can’t function at its very best. So, if you’re experiencing a restless night or feel you’re awake looking at the ceiling when you should be recharging, bedtime meditation could be the key to getting that quality shut-eye.
Known as the most popular type of meditating, this form of exercise improves your breathing skills. A great way to clear your thoughts and focus on your mindset. Before you step into your cosy bed tonight, unleash yourself from social media, get yourself into a comfortable position with no distractions, close your eyes and listen to an audio of sleep meditation.
Another way to improve your sleep is to switch off everything distracting before bedtime. No TV, phone or books. Many people enjoy reading a chapter or two of a book before getting into bed. With the aim to let go of exhaustion from your busy day, your goal is to relax. Listening to meditative clips of the ocean waves, raindrops or a walk through nature will also help you soothe into tranquility.
