In this sleep meditation, Deepak Chopra, M.D., leads us through a calming exercise to ease us into rest, and also to reimagine what our sleep space can be. Take a few moments to remove the barriers to sleep and reclaim the stability of your mind. Through this careful instruction you will be lulled into a restful state and from there you will find comfortable and spacious slumber.
Sleeping is essential for our own wellbeing. Unless we can let go of ourselves for at least a few hours every day, our minds become overworked, our bodies tired, and we cannot function properly in the world.
In this sleep meditation, Deepak Chopra leads us through a calming exercise to ease us into rest.
As he explains at the beginning of the video:
“The biggest reason for insomnia is actually worrying about insomnia. So anxiety about not going to sleep is the biggest cause of not being able to sleep.
Lie in bed either on one side or on your back and try to be as still as possible. And remember one thing: if you're still in lying in bed, your body gets almost the same rest as it would if it were totally asleep. So have the attitude that even if you can’t sleep you are getting the rest. That attitude will be very helpful because you won’t be worrying about sleep.”
Make yourself comfortable before you start listening to this meditation. Through his careful instructions, you will be lulled into a restful state where you will find a comfortable and spacious slumber.
