Are you sleeping okay?
Are you sleeping okay?
Many of us from time to time have problems sleeping, either our mind is racing or we just end up waking up several times in the night and I can’t get back to sleep. Having experienced a long period of time unable to sleep a few years back, here are my tips for getting into a balanced sleeping pattern again. Not being able to sleep long term can really have negative affects on all aspects of our health and well being.
Some tips on improving your sleep:
- It’s important to re-establish a regular night time routine to encourage balanced and deep sleep, this way you can entrain your mind, body and spirit to get used to a time to sleep. Often we can allow our work life to merge into our home life, particularly whilst working from home during this time.
- Create a routine, don’t drink anything a few hours before sleep, then hopefully you won’t be up going to the bathroom in the middle of the night. If you do drink have a herbal tea, this will help to relax your system.
- If you live in a hot country have a cool shower, alternativlly if you are in a colder climate have a nice warm bath, relax and unwind.
- Putting a drop or two of lavender essential oil on your pillow or use a device to release some lavender into the room. The beautiful lavender aroma has been used for centuries to help sleep, supporting the mind to relax and soothe the nervous system. It can also be a signal for our senses to prepare for sleep.
- Have some free flowing air in your room, getting the temperature right is key to having a good night’s sleep, neither too hot or too cold is good.
- I enjoy listening to guided meditations to send me off to sleep, the soft voice helps to send me off to sleep quickly. I recommend, you listen to Steve Nobel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxoD5GkimDw or Linda Jarrett meditations. Ultimately, you need to find what works for you. Alternatively, listen to some frequency music, to assist your sleep. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOhTLe2-zlg for a deep harmonious sleep.
- Having a tidy bedroom, free from clutter and mess is always good for the mind to settle. Use sage to cleanse and clear your personal space, with a Tibetan bowl or drum.
- I use a bio-resonance sleep program when I have trouble sleeping. I am happy to share this with you, get in touch if you would like to test it, Book a Free Session to experience frequencies
- Write a list of what you are grateful for? Even if it’s only 3 things, going to sleep with positive thoughts around your life, will help to bring peace to your mind and help you sleep.
- Any pets you have make sure they won’t be disturbing you whilst you sleep. They can take up a lot of space on your bed and disturb your sleep. Oh maybe you have a partner who snores, make sure your personal sleeping space is a place of peace and tranquility.
