As with meditation, you have to be comfortable with it in order to do it, and your meditation practice will determine how much it helps you relax. I used to do it all the time, just to get a good night’s sleep. Now I find myself doing it more often. I wake up feeling more refreshed and I don’t have the constant anxiety that comes from worrying about what I did or didn’t do.
I know it’s a bit woo-woo, but I’m starting to see some results already. I’ve been sleeping six hours longer than I had been in my previous life, and I’ve noticed that I’m not as cranky when I wake up in the morning and see that I was up for about 4 hours. I think it’s because I’m getting more sleep, and I’m using that time more effectively.
I think sleep is the ultimate self-healing tool. I just sleep. The longer you sleep, the less sleep you will get. So it’s a win-win for everyone.
There isn’t really an easy way to quantify self-healing. I think sleep is the best way to measure the effectiveness of your self-healing techniques, because we usually get less sleep than we expect. It’s also a good practice to try and learn to sleep longer, as you’ll be more tired at the end of your sleep period (when you should be more tired) and this may help you to feel less sleepy at the end of your day.
Sleep is the opposite of a zombie. In fact, sleep is the opposite of a zombie’s brain. It’s a state where we switch off the part of our brain that is related to the “fight-or-flight” hormone. This is where most people sleep, and it’s how most people die. One of the ways to “wake up” your brain is to just fall asleep, and that’s what sleep meditation is.
I often fall asleep when I’m stressed, so I’m always looking for ways to do that. But what I discovered is that I can fall asleep by thinking about things I like, and then when I eventually fall asleep, my mind is still awake and I’m not sleeping at all. In other words, I don’t sleep when I’m stressed out, so I can’t fall asleep either.
The thing is, you can fall asleep by thinking about things you like, and then when you eventually fall asleep, your mind is still awake and Im not sleeping at all.
I love this. I can fall asleep by thinking about things I like, and then when I eventually fall asleep, my mind is still awake and Im not sleeping at all.
This is the perfect hack for those who need to chill out, think about something they enjoy, and then fall asleep in a matter of moments. But if your goal is to fall asleep in a matter of seconds, then you’re far more likely to wake up with a bad case of the “I’m on autopilot” blues.
I wish I knew a trick to this. I know I would be able to fall asleep by thinking about stuff that I like, but I have no idea how I would do this. This is the perfect hack for those who need to chill out, think about something they enjoy, and then fall asleep in a matter of seconds.
