5 Meditations to help you relax & sleep better

We spend half of our lives figuring out what is good and what is bad for our selves living in the historic stresses and making our lives rustier without having a clue that it could be worst for our health. In such busy schedule, I don’t forget to do my yoga after work where my life gives me a new shape of health.While meditating may enable us to access a higher plane and vibrational frequency of our selves, a mini-breakthrough of deep breathing was a powerful and rewarding experience.
Find a quiet in your home, comfortable place to settle down and sit still with your eyes closed, either at work. Then experiment with one or all of the following five easy meditations to help you relax and sleep better.

1. Counting

I heard many times that backward counting actually makes you fall a sleep, count backward from 100, restarting every time you lose track. Don’t attach to forgetting your place; simply start over and keep counting down. Remember, there is no right or wrong and it will make you feel relax and calm.

2. Visualization

Concentrate on a single face, place, color, etc. Allow your mind to clear and focus on a single image. Your partner’s face with positive thoughts. A peaceful green field with the happy laugh. A cookie with a tempting milk. You get the idea. Notice how this makes you feel and your brain will be a great transformation.

3. Mantra

The mantra is basically based on anything positive develop a mantra like ” I’m grateful for… and repeat, as the Buddha said, “Better than a thousand hollow words, is the word that brings peace.” Silently repeat your mantra and allow your mind to clear as you focus on a single phrase.

4. Square Breathing

Practice yoga breathing, aka the “life force” we all know as our breath. Inhale and exhale through your nostrils only, cultivating your breath, a common practice of square breathing. Let the air drag over the back of your throat to create a low, ocean-like sound on the inhale and exhale. Once you’re warmed up, segue into square breathing: Inhale for four counts, hold for two and exhale for four. Repeat for two to three minutes.

5. Alternate Nostril Breathing

Keep your breath and incorporate alternate nostril breathing into your square breathing practice. Close your left nostril with your right ring finger. Inhale for four counts (through the right nostril only), hold for two (close right nostril with thumb), and exhale for four (through the left nostril only). Repeat for two to three minutes.
