End of the day

At the end of the day when you are getting ready for bed and everything you did and didn’t do today is swimming through your head, rather than allowing those thoughts to control you, take time to cool down from the day. Whip out your mat or sit right onto the floor and try 5-10 minutes of asana (yoga postures). Simple and gentle poses like cat-cow, a lying down twist, happy baby, and child’s pose. Moving slowly within these postures will allow your mind and body to connect through the meditative rhythm of your breath. Follow the asana with a 5 minute meditation where you silently repeat to your self on the inhale ‘let’ and on the exhale ‘go’. Inhale ‘let’, exhale ‘go’. Then make your way silently to bed. After sometime in bed if you feel as though sleep isn’t going to come easily try writing in a journal or reading a book. Sleep tight!

Shanti,
