We all surely experience times where sleep doesn’t come that easily.
Or maybe we wake up randomly at 2 am or such, and then keep tossing and turning, struggling to fall asleep again.
The first port of call for most? The mobile phone of course. And once that light hits the eye, sleep is only going to get delayed even further (science backs this up!).
But there’s another way.
Know how we usually do not find much time to meditate? Well why not meditate at such times when sleep isn’t coming?
I find this incredibly useful. One only needs to focus on the breath, slowly and calmly. At that time of night, usually all surrounding noises have died down. Peace prevails, and sleep will soon too.
