I have already spoken about the 5-success exercise in this blog.
Here is another one that I’ve been practicing for several months now. We all have sleepless moments now and then. Based on my experience, this is a great tool to calm down your mind and depart to the dreamland peacefully.
I call it “the day revision”.
When you are already in bed, rewind the whole day in your head as if you you were rewinding a videotape at slow speed.
It is important to be as detailed as possible. Starting from lying in bed, making the bed, taking a shower, making a plan for tomorrow – and so on backwards until you get to the moment of waking up in the morning.
Actually, this is a type of meditation. Its effect – at least for me – is two-fold.
First, it trains you concentration. You will notice that if you try to be diligent at reviewing your day, your thoughts will keep slipping away. It is important to realize those moments and force yourself gently back to the exercise,
And second, because it is quite intense when done properly, day revision brings more fatigue and thus makes you fall asleep faster.
Very simple and effective. And that’s how it should be.
Do you have your favorite tricks for a good deep sleep? Feel free to share and discuss them here.
Good night. 🙂
