A simple breathing exercise based on Yoga Nidra which basically means Sleep with Awareness. This helps calm the nervous system especially if you’ve had a busy day or have a busy mind.
They say a few minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to a few hours of quality sleep, it’s restorative as well as rejuvenating. You can practice this in the day if you just need to switch off or just before bedtime to help get some quality shut eye….
This is also great for children to help them relax and let go of any worries before going to sleep.
Lie down on your back, legs hip width apart, arms a little away from the body, with palms facing up. Cover yourself with a blanket. Get in a comfortable position and close your eyes.
