Is not rocket science that mindfulness practice can reduce stress. But can you practice mindfulness is by focusing on an area of the body? Say for example, your feet? 👣 You actually can! And this is a simple trick you can use at night to fall asleep faster. I find that because the feet are relatively far from the brain, focusing on them offers a nice buffer against distraction from all those stories that can keep you up at night. How? Breathe naturally and focus on your feet 👣 , letting yourself rest instead of trying to fall back asleep immediately. Take your time to sense your feet, bringing your attention back to your breath and feet any time you get distracted by thoughts, sensations or emotions. As you integrate these tools into your sleep routine, give yourself time to explore, mixing and matching the tools that feel right for you. Avocado hugs, Monica PS – Focusing on your feet is a great example of how Sleep Simplified can be extra practical to feel energized and focused during the day without adding complicated routines into your schedule. If you're ready to sleep like a Queen, consider joining the Sleep Simplified Guidely group for more simple and effective tools for better sleep. 😴 💤
