Three Relaxation Techniques To Do In Bed

The Body Scan. Lie flat on your spine with your eyes closed and breathe in and out at a slow rate, taking deep breaths in through your nose and softly blowing air out through your oral cavity.

Sensing the weight of that division and truly experiencing it "sink" into the seam.Persist in this progressive muscle relaxation until you've touched your face and mind.

A Mantra Meditation. Rest on your rear or side-whatever attitude you find most comfortable to fall asleep-and breathe in and out at a firm, slow tempo. Then, choose a phrase that you find deeply relaxing and calming, and repeat portions of that phrase silently to yourself on both the inhale and exhale. For instance, you might repeat the phrase "let live" and silently read the word "let" on your inhaling breath and "go" on your exhale; another lovely mantras might include "I'm well" or "good night."

Repeat this a total of 10 times-or until you're asleep.
