Better Sleep Through Meditation: 4 Techniques To Try Tonight

Posted May 06 2012 12:00am
I'm a big fan of meditation, it has helped me with sleep, with pain and with stress managment.  One of the things I love about my new iPad is that it has a bunch of meditation apps on it, and I have also found (and shared with you on the blog) a couple great YouTube videos on meditation and deep breathing. 

This is not a new article from the health section of The Huffington Post.com , but it's concise and has some very good information for those of you who are struggling with sleep (behind hot flashes, disrupted sleep is the most common peri/menopausal difficulty I hear about from women.....I can empathize, I've been there!)  I use guided imagery some nights to help me get to sleep, other nights I like a program that plays sounds of nature, I love the sound of gentle rain (something we need a bit more of in Charlotte right now----we're in a mild drought situation). 

Wishing you all a great night's sleep, tonight and every night!  Oh, and if you are wondering, I take 3 mg of melatonin every night (over the counter supplement, works well, better than any sleeping med I used to take), and I also take a Cortisol Manager every night.
