Take a large breath is, pulling in as much air as you can….and just let it go.
[Pause for 3 seconds]

Allow yourself another full and beautiful breath…. letting it go without pushing the air out too hard.
[Pause for 3 seconds]

Take one more breath, in your own pace…. as full as you can… holding it for a moment…. and let the air go.
[Pause for 3 seconds]

Nice. Taking a few big breaths whenever you are ready to rest is now your priority.

Your lower back relaxes as it presses against the surface you are laying on…..your hips, pelvis, and glutes relax….the back of your legs, all the way down to your ankles relaxes…..this makes you feel so sleepy…

[Pause for 5 seconds]

Good…..

We are going to go through one more focus scan on the front of our bodies, starting at your forehead…..many of us hold tension in our foreheads….so allow your forehead to just melt away, allowing wrinkles to flatten……this also relaxes the frontal cortex of the brain…...the place of creative formulation…...relax your eyes now and notice they are making tiny movements….these movements are called rapid eye movement which allow you to relax, even more……and notice your nose and how the air passes though, allow this flow to relax you…..relax your mouth and your tongue…..

[Pause for 5 seconds]

Good…..

Every single part of your body is so relaxed right now.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

Just enjoy this feeling for some time.
[pause for 1 minute]

Now you are going to relax your body one more time, but in a different way.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

A fully relaxed body makes sleep come easily and effortlessly.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

Make a fist with both of your hands and squeeze as hard as you can for 5 seconds,
[Pause for 5 seconds]

then let go completely.

This is called tensing, or tense.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

Tense your entire arms, flexing every muscle in your arms for 5 whole seconds.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

And release completely.

Now tense your chest and abs as much as you can.

Holding it for an entire 5 seconds…

And release the leg muscles completely…relaxing your legs.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

And lastly….tense your feet as much as you can. Holding..2..3..4..5..
And relax your feet.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

Good. By doing this you activate, and then deactivate each muscle in your body, causing a continuous relaxation.
[Pause for 5 seconds]

Now just stop doing anything at all.
[Pause for 8 seconds]

Don’t flex or relax anything…..

Don’t activate or rest any area…..

Just allow yourself to be….
[Pause for 8 seconds]

Allow for your body to adjust to anything it sees is needed….allow for your body to have complete freedom from thought…..let your body be in control of itself now, to heal what needs to be healed….or activate what needs to activate….or rest what needs to rest….it will do exactly as it needs now….without any effort or even your suggestions…..
[Pause for 8 seconds]

This is the natural state of your body…when you allow the mind to step away from it.
[Pause for 8 seconds]

When your mind gets out of the way, our bodies can take charge in miraculous ways.
Changing hormones…..the very chemistry of our bodies……..and even the structure of each of our cells……
[Pause for 8 seconds]

This is what sleep and rest are for.
Sleeping fully allows for our mind to let go of the body so that it can regenerate.
[Pause for 8 seconds]

Allow for yourself to nap now, however long you feel you need to.
So, right now, allow your body to do what it does best……..to rest……..
