Mindfulness for Stress & Anxiety
Mindfulness of breathing can be a big help for dropping off to sleep, by taking your attention away from worries and anxieties and resting on soothing rhythm of breathing.

It’s helpful to continue to come back to focus on your breathing instead of all the things in your mind.

Release of Tension
My whole body feels looser, supple, after just 3+ minutes of this. It’s a similar feeling to when I do 40~ minutes of yoga before bed.

I was already sleepy so this was easy and several times I found myself slipping into sleep. I don’t really have a problem with that

Hmmm
This wasn’t a good one for me. Her voice didn’t keep my focus for some reason. My mind kept racing

I learned that breathing can help decrease racing thoughts while I am trying to go to sleep. If I focus my mind on my breathing and let go of racing thoughts or anxiety I will have a peaceful sleep.

Its going to take some practice learning to fully let go of all the thoughts running through my head and putting all my focus on nothing for 3 minutes but i can feel myself improving slowly but surely.

Sleep
So often sort but never found for long ... I rejoice in its gentle arms, soothed and safe, I drift off to the play land of my subconscious. At the whim of flight and fancy I live a thousand lives, become a thousand people ... meet gods, mythical and mysterious. Oh at times I wish to stay, with loved ones passed, sweeping the starry sky without wings I feel the wind upon me, the chill of night but yet exhilarate in sensation. I give birth to a thousand thoughts and yet I wake to find me still the same, though a secret smile hides within me for all that I have experienced in the place of dreams.

The Soothing rhythm of the breath
I learned that I can soothe myself by listening to the natural rhythm of my breath. I can use this technique to drift off to sleep. I don’t think I have ever focused on the natural rhythm of my breath in other words the way the body breathes when I’m not conscious of it. Generally when I focus attention on my breath I tend to want to control and direct it. This is very different.

Deep Relaxation
Inhaling and exhaling for around 5 seconds about 10 times I feel that I’m in deep relaxation. This video had reminded me of how breathing slowly can relax my mind a lot faster than I thought I could.

Dropping off to Sleep
When thoughts/worries pop into your head when trying to sleep, don’t force them out; pivot the mind by focusing on breathing. It makes the thoughts drift away naturally.

I enjoyed this meditation because it focuses simply on breathe and breathing. Just in and out; in and out. I felt really relaxed and zoned in.
