Relax to Help Achieve Natural Sleep
The stresses of our daily lives are a proven hindrance to our ability to sleep, as we take problems with us to bed. Visualisation is an easy and effective way to help achieve natural sleep, but before even attempting to visualise, it is important to relax the body.
Lie down in bed, making sure you are comfortable and take deep, slow breaths. Continue taking deep breaths until you start to feel calm and relaxed. This is the first step in achieving natural sleep.
Visualise a Relaxing Scene…
Now that your body is relaxed, it is time to relax your mind. Imagine that you are at the beach, sitting by the water. There are no sounds bar the gentle lapping of the waves upon the shore. The soft summer’s breeze brushes against your skin delicate as a lover’s kiss. It carries with it the earthly aroma of trees and flowers, sand and salt. Try to immerse yourself in the scene – the more real and relaxing it feels, the more effective it will be in helping you attain natural sleep. It need not be an imagining of the beach. You are only limited by your imagination.
Routine Makes Perfect with Natural Sleep
Many people quickly give up on the visualisation technique, as they do not get immediate results. Persevere with it the results will come. The first time you try it you will likely be acutely aware of what you are trying to do and this will hinder its effectiveness.
With time, it will become more natural and you will be immersed in your imaginary scene, quickly and easily allowing you to forget the stresses of your daily life. When done correctly, the visualisation routine can be very effective in helping with natural sleep.
