Sleep meditations - how to fall asleep in the evening

Trouble falling asleep? Tossing and turning in bed all night? Are you a light sleeper that wakes up from the slightest noise? Sleep meditations will help you sleep better and deeper and wake up well-rested in the morning.

Meditate before going to sleep

If you’re not able to get good sleep, meditation is a great way to connect with yourself and experience peace. Every day we cope with an overflow of impressions that cause a lot of anxiety and stress. Sleep meditations are a way to file all these impressions and to prepare yourself for the night, mentally and physically. Meditation has a strong effect on your night's rest. You’re actually pressing the pause button and bringing your body into its state of rest. This allows you to sleep better and it’s a wonderful way to end the day.


Make it part of your evening routine

Meditation is most effective when you do it on a regular basis. Enjoying one good night of sleep is nice, but you probably prefer a good night's sleep every night. So how can you program this as a good new habit? Create an evening ritual for yourself. How do you like to end your day? It could be anything:

  • Evening meditations
  • Reading a good book
  • Taking a warm bath
  • Going for a walk
  • Doing yoga exercises
  • Listening to music

Set your alarm an hour before going to bed. That’s the start of your evening ritual. From that moment on try to avoid your screens as much as possible (cell phone, laptop, television). The screen’s blue light makes you more alert – not something you’re looking for when you're about to go to sleep.

Read a book, take a nice bath or end your day with a pleasant evening meditation. You can do a meditation while sitting, but it feels better if you can fall asleep afterwards. So make sure you’re ready for the night, get comfortable in bed and start the meditation. A big advantage is that you can stay in your bed if you fall asleep during or after the meditation!
