Sleep is crucial for the proper functioning of both the body and mind. Obtaining the right amount of high-quality sleep is vital for our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Even those who manage to get seven hours of sleep daily may need better-quality rest. Issues like sleep disorders, interrupted sleep, and constant thoughts can prevent truly restful sleep.
After a good night’s sleep, you should feel joyful and energized. Guided meditation techniques can help you achieve deeper, more relaxed sleep. Try the following exercise before bed:
Place a hand on your heart and pay attention to its pace, rhythm, and pattern. Inhale deeply for four seconds and then exhale slowly. Repeating this process for a few moments will help lower your heartbeat and blood pressure, promoting relaxation.
