1. Count your victories. As you close your eyes, review your day, choosing to focus your attention on all the things that went well for you. This is a great exercise to help you stay more positive, develop self-awareness and self-esteem.
  2. Use affirmations. Place a smile on your face, to express gratitude. Then repeat 3 times silently to yourself:  “May I have a peaceful, restful night” then add  “Thank you.”
  3. Scan your body. Relax your body, release all tensions.  Start by noticing the presence of your head on the pillow, then your shoulders, your arms, hands, spine back hips, buttocks, legs and feet.
  4. Become aware of your breath. Notice your breath coming in and going out. Notice the air tickling your nostrils, feeling cool on the way in and warm on the way out.  Breathe in deeply, letting the belly rise and breathe out slowly releasing restlessness and any resistance to relaxation.
  5. Picture a starlit sky.   Let your breath dissolve into space and imagine floating in a starlit sky. Take your bed with you if you want. As you float amidst the millions of stars that fill the sky, surrender to the benevolence of the night.

 We hope this helps any of you who are having a difficult time sleep
