Top 11 Meditations for Bedtime

We’ve all experienced trouble falling and staying asleep at some point in our lives. Your head hits the pillow and suddenly the mind goes into thoughts of whatever happened throughout the day, what’s happening around the world and what you have to do tomorrow.

The more time passes the more stressful you become because you’ve realised you have a million things on your plate. Hours pass and now you’re worried about not getting enough rest because you have to get up early..

Sleep is supposed to be the most natural and important thing. Yet, various studies worldwide have shown the prevalence of insomnia in 10%–30% of the population, some even as high as 50%–60%! It is common in older adults, females, and people with medical and mental ill health.

I have gathered my current Top 11 Meditation for Bedtime to deeply relax your mind and body, and help you get a better night’s sleep. Let’s get to it!
