25 September 2019
- Dream big!
Just so you know; everything begins with a dream. If you can dream it, you can do it! Small or big. You can go everywhere you set your mind to, as long as you’ve the right intention and that makes you the master of your own thinking and action…also for you having the perfect night's rest.
- Back to Basic, Back to Books
Go at least 1,5 hour offline. Read a book. Become one with the letters on the paper, to let you become tired (naturally). Take a pen and paper to write down three worries you’ve got, also maybe in the middle of the night - this helps you to get them out of your system.
- Release muscle tension for the ultimate rest
Stretch yourself out. Lay down and after you’ve breath in fully, breath it out and let go of all the tensions inside of you - while you experience your fullest state of relaxation. For the ultimate rest; practice sleep yoga (yoga Nidra) before stepping into your bed.
- Go back to nature – sleep on nature!
Collect plants for your bedroom, sleep in organic sleepwear made out of cotton or even better; sleep naked! Sleep exclusively on ‘natural materials’, toxic-free and metal free. Put some lavender underneath your pillow or next to your bed. Or use other herbs which have the power to relax your mind and body, maybe even in your drink. Drink a glass of Greek Mountain tea or make tea from the physalis passion flower. Give yourself a massage with ethereal neroli or sage oils. Listen and follow your own biological clock.
Even if sleeping is not going so well, just accept it. Observe whatever you might find inside of you, without being judgmental about it. Be gentle to yourself and have full compassion. Let go of the thought that you ‘must’ sleep or that your clock will start snoozing in a short time. Trust that your body will rest anyways while it lays down in at least a comfortable lying position.
