Alternative Tips For A Good Night’s Sleep

Keep in mind that the bedroom is a place for romance and relaxation.

  • Use Lavender essential oil. Sprinkle a few drops on a piece of tissue and put it under your pillow, make your own room spray by mixing it with water, or use an aromatherapy diffuser.
  • Use organic cotton sheets and make sure to have a comfortable and inviting bed.
  • The bed should be solid and stable.
  • Avoid the color red. Soothing pale colors are appropriate.
  • No plants. Plants can drain the room of auspicious vibrations.
  • The bedroom shouldn’t be too warm but you shouldn’t be freezing as well. Try to keep the temperature around 65F or 19C.
  • Try Valerian, Chamomile or Lemon Balm Tea.
  • Clear the air. Don’t go to bed in the middle of an argument.
  • Clear the clutter. The bedroom should be a calm and relaxing environment.
  • Don’t work or watch TV in the bedroom.Β  Too many books can also be to stimulating.
  • Clocks and phones should be kept away from the bed as they provide too much electromagnetic stimulation.
  • Be in the present. Don’t worry about the past or future.

Why you should meditate

No you don’t need to be a Buddhist or a spiritual guru to enjoy all the benefits of meditation. Meditation is for everybody. Already 5 minutes a day is a great start. If you cannot handle complete silence at the beginning, try out some guided meditations with background music.

Our mind is full of thoughts all the time even when we are sleeping. Don’t you think it would be happy about a break from time to time?

Some benefits of meditation:

  1. Being calmer
  2. Being more focused
  3. Improvement of sleep
  4. Having better social interactions
  5. Getting to know yourself better
  6. Having more energy

Lesson 7

It is okay to be lazy!

In our society nowadays we see it as a big achievement to be super busy. However, being busy does not increase our quality of life. Humans, as every other animal, need time to relax and just do nothing. Look at cats or dogs, they sleep almost all the time. It is okay to not be super busy, nothing to be ashamed of.
