Meditation is an excellent solution for many common problems, and we’ve covered several of them here at GR8NESS. We’ve explored how to use meditation to cope with anxiety, and how meditating at the office can make you feel better. But what about sleep? Is there a type of meditation that can help with that?

The answer is yes. There is. Watch the video below to learn how to get a better night’s sleep using meditation, guaranteed, and then keep reading to find out more.

Mindfulness Meditation for Better Sleep

Studies have shown that mindfulness meditation promotes better sleep. The GR8 thing about the practice is that it doesn’t take a lot of time. Starting with a session as short as ten minutes can have positive effects.

Mindfulness meditation helps to quiet the mind and promotes a state of relaxation and well-being. Once our minds are soothed and our bodies relaxed, it is much easier to reach a peaceful state of sleep.

How to Practice Mindfulness Meditation

Practicing mindfulness meditation is an excellent technique for beginners. It’s relatively simple, and you don’t need anything besides your mind, and in this case, your bed, to do it.

Follow these steps to practice mindfulness meditation:

  1. Lay down in bed in the position you typically sleep in.
  2. Recognize all the thoughts in your head what you did and didn’t do that day, any worries or excitement.
  3. Take a physical inventory and notice any sensations you feel in your body.
  4. Allow thoughts to pass and bring your focus to your breath.
  5. Your thoughts will continue to come and go, but each time you recognize them to bring your focus back to breathing.
  6. As you exhale, imagine your busy thoughts leaving your mind.
  7. Continue doing this for as long as you need it. It generally takes 10-20 minutes to quiet your mind.
  8. Drift off to sleep.

Why Mindful Meditation Works

Mindful meditation helps many to settle into a peaceful state, letting go of the thoughts that overwhelm us when we lay down for the night. It also promotes a better quality of sleep. You are less likely to awaken due to an overactive mind when you have taken the time to clear your conscience before bed.

Give it a try tonight, after all, you’ll already be in bed.
