BENEFITS OF SLEEP MEDITATIONS
Sleep is a critical phase in our lives that provides rest and prepares us for the new day. A restful sleep helps us forget minor worries and integrate our experiences so that we wake up refreshed and ready for new challenges.
Meditation can help achieve relaxation of both the mind and body, making it an effective tool for combating sleep disturbances like difficulty falling asleep, waking up frequently at night, restless sleep, and more.
Quality sleep has numerous benefits, such as increased physical restoration, improved immune function, and integration of experiences into the subconscious mind. It also provides a connection to higher intelligence and creativity, leading to fresh ideas, hope, and confidence. In contrast, poor sleep quality can result in stress, brain fog, irritability, distraction, reduced vitality, weakened creativity, and a move towards survival mode.
Many factors can contribute to poor quality sleep, some of which require special attention, such as:
1.Chronic anxiety and depression, especially when accompanied by feelings of insecurity, lack of safety, chronic pessimism, and an overactive inner critic.
2.A wounded sense of self and self-image from past traumas.
3.Perfectionism with unrealistic expectations.
4.Lack of trust in one's ability to make good decisions and take care of oneself.
5.Physical pain or illness.
To manage poor sleep quality or lack of sleep, Active Meditation provides two solutions. One is an extensive collection of sleep meditations designed to provide relief for symptoms of anxiety or depression, which may help improve sleep if one of these symptoms is the root cause. The other solution is the Active Meditation Master Course, which aims to address the deeper issues behind anxiety and depression by harnessing the full resources of one's Higher Self.
In order to nap better, it is important to understand your sleep cycles. Short naps of 15 to 30 minutes are great for recharging during the day, while naps longer than 30 minutes can leave one feeling sluggish. A 60-minute nap provides deeper sleep, while a 90-minute nap gives a full sleep cycle and can improve decision-making skills and creativity.
