Exercises for Relaxation


Learning to relax is a great way to help you fall asleep quicker at night. One thing you can try is a breathing exercise. Close your eyes and notice your breathing. Turn all your attention to your natural breathing pattern and feel the air enter and leave your nose or mouth. Another exercise involves guided imagery. The idea is to focus your attention on an image or story, allowing your mind to let go of worries or thoughts that prevent sleep. One last exercise is to rotate your clock away from you. This helps you not worry about the time if you can’t fall asleep, and will be a reminder that no matter what, your body will eventually take over and allow you to sleep.
