Sleep Better with Meditation

Can’t sleep? Meditation can help!

Life is GOOD when you can sleep well…

Sleep is undoubtedly one of the most important part of life. Approximately taking up 8 hours every 24 hours, which is ONE-THIRD of our time, and also strongly affecting the rest of the awake time, a quality sleep is essential for a happy life. We need a good sleep for our body to be healthy and our immune system strong, especially in uncertain times like this COVID pandemic. But just when we need it the most, it’s not easy to get it due to the very stress we are fighting.

What disturbs our sleep?

There are many factors that affect our sleep, and some are exterior factors such as:

– lifestyle choices (Alcohol, caffeine, nicotine),

– environment( excess heat or cod, loud noise or bright light, uncomfortable bed)

-physical conditions( chronic pain, frequent urination, lack of exposure to sunlight, medical conditions such as sleep apnea or hormonal imbalance)

-others such as jet lag or night shift at work.

And then there are things in our minds that stops us from getting a restful sleep, such as worries, anxiety, depression, stress, compulsive thoughts, etc. When there’s too much going on in your mind, you could never fall asleep. And even if you did, you wake up feeling like you didn’t sleep at all.

While the exterior factor have a rather straight forward solutions to them, it’s not so easy to tackle what’s going on in our minds. That’s where meditation can be helpful.

Clear Your Mind Before Going To Bed

Meditation helps you to clear out and remove all the unnecessary thoughts and other things that stops you from ‘turning your mind off’.

We lie awake at night, thinking hard as if our entire life depend on those thoughts, but the truth is the next morning, most of us can’t even remember what I was thinking or worrying about last night, and they are rarely productive.

Even with just 10 minutes of meditation before going to sleep, you can effectively tackle those worries, anxiety, and should-haves. At Dublin Meditation, we offer a very easy, scientific method that helps you eliminate those thoughts from your mind. Once you learn how to do it, you can do it anywhere, anytime!

How can I improve my sleep

Want to learn how to improve your sleep…look no further!

‘It is late. The body is tired and there is only the strong desire to fall asleep. But I can not. I try to not think about today or tomorrow. I try to not think about whatever keeps me awake, sometimes I do not even know why am I still awake. I try to not try to fall a sleep. I am so tired. However, I find myself awake on one side of the bed, then on the other side, then on my back. The next day I wake up and feel terrible, as If I would have partied all night or as I would have had to many drinks. I am tired, energyless and can not wait the day to be over, to catch up with my sleep again.’

Better Sleep

Everyone has expierenced this. Some of us sometimes, some of us regularly and some of us to a very high extent, too. However, we expierenced that people who meditate regularly are happily stating that this issue dissolves, and how it completely dissapears over time. 

But how can meditation increase the quality of sleep? 

When the mind wanders, it is restless. Some thoughts or elements in life are regulalry returning to our minds. This keeps one awake and stresses the body. Due to meditation one realizes which thoughts are constantly coming into our minds, keep us awake and how to let go of them. We highly recommend to try out our free Seminar. With this one can see how the sleeping pattern will change over time. In our guidance and individual mentoring we offer an easy meditation method one can apporach before going to bed. It helps to easily let go of the day and to fall a sleep like a baby.

Meditation may also:

  1. increase melatonin (the sleep hormone)
  2. increase serotonin (precursor of melatonin)
  3. reduce heart rate.
  4. decrease blood pressure.
  5. activate parts of the brain that control sleep.
