Meditation: Guided Meditation – Blissful Deep Relaxation
Have you been having trouble with sleep? One of the most common reasons for sleep issues (insomnia) such as difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep is due to a busy or over-active mind which can be part of stress, anxiety, or depression. In this modern day, we are so busy and our minds are so used to thinking about so much at once, and this is even more so with stress, anxiety, and depression. Meditation is an excellent way to calm your mind. When you calm your mind, you can calm your body, which will result in a highly relaxed state conducive to sleep. Meditation is much more simple than you might think; it is all about just focusing on the breath. When your mind wanders off, just come back to your breath. The more you practice, the easier this will become and the more benefit you will notice!
