Ever find that despite your best efforts you struggle to fall asleep?
While I consider myself a good sleeper, I have struggled with sleep at various points in my life and understand the havoc not sleeping well can have on your life. Additionally, my son who is a high energy soccer player, regularly struggles to wind down in the evenings and drift off to sleep, much to my dismay.
There are of course, several sleep hygiene tips that will help you create and maintain quality sleep. The American Sleep Association has great resources on their website. I particularly recommend their list of sleep hygiene tips.
Another favorite of both my son and I are to listen to sleep meditations once comfortable in bed.
Topping our short list is this great 15-minute guided meditation: How to Fall Asleep in 15 minutes.
Even a certified hypnotherapist such as myself, who uses self-hypnosis regularly, enjoys laying back and letting someone else guide me into relaxation sometimes.
Give it a try tonight and let me know what you think.
