It always happens on the nights when you need the most sleep. You have a huge school test, a work presentation—so why can’t you sleep through the night?
The next time you suddenly wake up in the wee hours of the morning—drift back into dreamland with these six heavenly sleep tactics that will have you snoozing again faster than counting sheep…
1. Relax by Meditating
If you’ve ever starting snoring during the last leg of a yoga class you know exactly what I mean. We take corpse pose or shavassana at the end of class, signaling to our bodies that it’s time to relax.
So do the same in bed—relax your muscles, let go of any tension or anxious thoughts by focusing on your breathing. Letting go of all tension in your muscles also triggers the brain to relax…and hopefully, fall back asleep.
