    Powerful Guided Deep Sleep Meditation To Fall Asleep Fast

    Powerful Guided Deep Sleep Meditation To Fall Asleep Fast

    13 Natural Ways to Fall Asleep Quickly

    How long does it take you to fall asleep? The average time is about 10 to 20 minutes. If you fall asleep much faster, you may be sleep-deprived. If you take much longer, you may find it difficult to get the recommended 7 to 8 hours of slumber.

    The scientific name for trouble falling asleep is sleep onset latency, and it affects the efficiency of your sleep. Falling asleep on schedule helps you to enjoy adequate amounts of the later stages of deep sleep. Otherwise, your sleep may be less refreshing as well as too brief.

    Your specific remedy may depend on what’s keeping you up at night. Experiment with these natural methods for falling asleep faster.

    Changing Your Lifestyle

    Your daily habits can have a big impact on what you experience at night. Adjusting your lifestyle could shorten sleep onset latency. These strategies make it easier to fall asleep quickly:

    1. Synchronize your schedule. Go to bed and wake up at regular times, even on weekends and holidays. You’ll be training your body and mind to develop a rhythm for when to become drowsy.

    2. Eat light. Avoid eating foods high in calories or heavy on spices late in the day. If you want to snack, enjoy a piece of fruit or a warm glass of milk.

    3. Use relaxation exercises. Deep breathing and a guided deep sleep meditation using progressive muscle relaxation are two popular methods for hastening sleep. It also helps to manage stress during the day and visualize pleasant images at bedtime.

    4. Work out.  Along with many other benefits, an active lifestyle enhances sleep. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week.

    5. Forget the clock. Worrying about falling asleep can keep you awake longer. Resist the urge to keep checking what time it is.

    6. Leave the room. If you’re unable to relax, you may want to get out of bed. Go to another room and do something boring.

    7. Limit alcohol and caffeine. Cut back on cocktails and coffee, especially in the later hours. Alcohol will interfere with the quality of your sleep. Coffee after about 2 pm may keep you alert hours later.

    8. Keep a journal. Sleep issues can have many different causes. Recording your habits in a journal could enable you to spot patterns and help you talk with your doctor if you need to explore medical reasons.

    Falling asleep quicker can increase the quantity and

    Top 4 Practical Stress Management Skills You Need To Master

    Top 4 Practical Stress Management Skills You Need To Master

    In this podcast, I'm going to tell you about the top four skills you need to master to relieve stress. Without these skills, you will not be able to healthfully manage your stress levels.

    1. Avoid Stress

    The top skill to master is to simply avoid stress. This skill may seem like a sarcastic answer, but it is truly helpful. There are several practical ways that you can avoid stress.

    Firstly, take control of what you can control. If you know that you are going to have a stressful day or that arriving late to work causes you stress, plan accordingly so that you can attempt to avoid stress.

    Secondly, avoid people who make your stress much worse. Obviously, we cannot avoid everyone who causes stress, but try to minimize your encounters with them.

    More so, learn to say no to people. Many people find themselves in stressful situations because they don’t know how to say no. Learning to say no when you are already stressed or busy will prevent you from experiencing any more stress. 

    2. Change the Situation

    Another skill to master is knowing how to change your situation for the best. Whenever you feel overwhelmed or stressed, be able to take charge of the situation and think of ways to effectively alleviate the stress of that situation.

    If another person is causing you to feel stress, communicate with that person. They are probably unaware of the stress they are putting on you. Remember to approach this person with respect and vulnerability. It is best to use the “I” pronouns so that the other person does not feel attacked.
     
    If your stress is coming from time management-related issues, learn how to manage your time better. Either schedule fewer appointments or learn how to multitask. Be sure to take note of your limits so that way you know how much you can handle in the future.

    3. Accept What You Can’t Control

    The previous two skills involve knowing how to change your situation, but there are many instances where you have no control over the matter. Whenever you find yourself in this place, you need to have the skill of being able to accept what you cannot change. Being able to accept these things will help to relieve stress from your life.

    One of the best ways to accept what you can't control is to be kind to yourself. Instead of thinking negative thoughts about yourself or others, think of positive things that you can say. Speaking positivity and kindness to yourself will allow you the sensitivity to accept things without letting them affect your mindset.

    4. Adapt to Situations

    Finally, the last skill to master is learning how to adapt to stressful situations. If you have accepted that there is a situation you cannot control,

    8 Meditation Exercises You Can Use To Meditate More Often

    8 Meditation Exercises You Can Use To Meditate More Often

    These meditation exercises will allow you to meditate every day without needing to reschedule your entire calendar.

    1. Meditation Exercises For Beginners: Meditate in Small Intervals

    The best way to meditate more is to commit to smaller intervals. Instead of setting aside an hour a day to meditate, set aside multiple intervals of two or five minutes. Meditating in smaller intervals will allow you to disperse your meditation so that you can do more without rescheduling your entire day. 

    2. Incorporate Meditation into Your Routine

    Another way to meditate more is to simply incorporate it into your routine. Just like anything else, you have to prioritize your meditation. If you don't make it part of your routine, you won't do it.

    3. Meditation Exercises For Anxiety: Multitask While You Meditate

    The third way to meditate more is to multitask while you meditate. Whenever you perform daily tasks such as cleaning or waiting in line for your coffee, you can do little meditations.

    4. Try Yoga To Work Out And Meditate At The Same Time

    You can also meditate more by changing out your workout routine. Instead of going to your regular Zumba class, try a yoga class instead. Yoga is a great form of exercise that challenges your mind and body. 

    5. Guided Meditation Exercises: Listen to a Guided Meditation While You Shower

    Many people use their shower time to reflect and think about their life. So, it makes sense to use that time in order to meditate more. While you are showering, you might want to practice breathing techniques or listen to a guided meditation.

    6. Meditate During Commercials

    Another great way to meditate more is to meditate during TV commercials. Instead of surfing the web during the commercial breaks, you should use that time in order to strengthen your mind through meditation.

    7. Meditation Exercises For Sleep: Fall Asleep to a Guided Meditation

    The seventh tip for meditating more is to fall asleep while listening to a guided meditation. Most people need a couple of minutes before they can fall asleep. Use those minutes to listen to a guided meditation. 

    8. View Anywhere as Your Meditation Space

    The final tip for meditating more is to view anywhere you go as your meditation space. Many people fall into the trap of thinking that you have to meditate in a still, quiet room. Though a quiet room may make meditation easier, any place is suitable for meditation.

    10 Minute Guided Meditation To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind

    10 Minute Guided Meditation To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind

    This 10 Minute Guided Meditation is designed to help reprogram your subconscious mind. So your mind is working on your side rather than against you. We, as human beings have inner voices and those inner voices determine who we become.

    Have you really tried to reprogram your subconscious mind? Perhaps you've attended seminars, read books, and taken courses, but, in the end, fallen back into the same dysfunctional patterns you've always followed! Why does it always turn out this way?
    We struggle to make permanent changes in our lives because we input information only into our conscious minds. Here's the problem: your conscious mind is not what directs your behaviors and belief system. To change your behaviors, you must first reprogram the hard-wired center of your mind: the subconscious mind.
    So it's very important for us to make sure that our inner voices are working on our side rather than against us. We live in a society where most people settle for less than what they really want in their life because they adopt limiting beliefs that society holds.

    You need to live your life a certain way by a set and cultural expectations. Societal expectation. As human beings, we have a lot of pressure put on us to be a specific kind of person. When the reality is we are free beings and we should be able to determine what our life would look like.

    That's why today we're going to do this powerful 10 Minute Guided Meditation To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind reprogramming, which is going to involve affirmations.

    When we affirmed something when we repeat something, it becomes a part of our subconscious mind, our minds take it in. And then we begin to believe that which then affects our behavior. So we are behaving in a way that's in our own best interest.

    Using these strategies will help you program your mind to benefit your mind, body, and soul:
    Affirmations. Everyone is familiar with affirmations. These are positive statements that you repeat to yourself each day. Affirmations can be powerful, but they must be used correctly:
    ● Avoid affirmations that are clearly untrue. Your subconscious is flexible, but it’s not willing to seriously consider the ridiculous. Repeating, “I am a billionaire,” is too factually untrue to be accepted by your subconscious. “My financial situation is improving rapidly” is easier to swallow.
    ● Use imagery and emotions to really sell it. See yourself as thin, financially successful, or selling your first novel. Generate the same emotion you would have in that situation.
    ● Repeat your affirmations 3 sessions per day for 5-10 minutes each. Right before falling asleep, right after awakening, and an opportune time during the day are ideal times. For example, if you want to strengthen your

    Live In The Present Moment: The #1 Secret to be Stress-Free

    Live In The Present Moment: The #1 Secret to be Stress-Free

    Today, I want to tell you about the one secret to being stress-free to live in the present moment. Let us start by looking at what stress is and the impact it has on our bodies.

    Stress and Your Health

    According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It is how your body reacts to any challenge or demand. Thoughts, events, or feelings of frustration, anger, or nervousness can result in stress. When your body experiences stress, it releases hormones to make your brain more alert, muscles tense, and pulse to increase. 

    Some health problems associated with chronic stress include:

    ● High blood pressure
    ● Heart disease
    ● Diabetes
    ● Obesity
    ● Depression or anxiety 

    The 1 Secret to be Stress-Free: Live In The Present Moment

    Now that you know the dangers of stress, you may be thinking of ways to alleviate any chronic or unneeded stress from your life. In short, the 1 secret to be stress-free is to live in the present moment.

    When you live in the present moment, you let go of both the past and future to instead live your life with your body, feelings, and immediate situation joined as one. The benefit of living in the present is that you focus on what you can control and let go of things that are out of control.

    You might be thinking, “Who doesn’t live in the present moment?” and brush off this advice. But the truth of the matter is that very few people intentionally live in the present.

    Let us try a short exercise. I want you to close your eyes and think about everything that you have done today. Especially take note of all the times that you lived in either the past or the future.

    Common examples of living outside the present include worrying about tomorrow’s busy schedule, allowing past relationship mistakes to dictate resent relationships, or staying glued to your phone in social situations.  My guess is that a lot of your day was spent worrying about the past or the future. If this sounds like you, then it is time to start living in the present more.

    Of course, thinking about your future and reflecting on your past are both good things. In fact, thinking about your past and future helps you to grow and create a life you want. But it is important that you use the past and future to create a present that makes you happy and fulfilled.

    Start harnessing your energy towards the ability to live in the present moment. Allow yourself to feel emotions as they come and focus on the tasks that are directly in front of you. As you do this, you will see much of your stress melt away, helping you to live a stress-free life.

Slow sound engineer

Who was the genius that decided to add an immensely loud electronic noise now to every episode at the beginning? Used to be 5 stars without the obnoxious sound playing right after a meditation is finished. Fix this!
