Stay Anchored Meditation: Drifting Off to Sleep in Paradise

Lorie-

Welcome to this guided sleep meditation. In this dreamy visualization, I will gently guide you into a restful and rejuvenating deep sleep while you visit a warm, tropical paradise. A perfect way to comfort you and surround you in warmth as you settle into sleep. Release the distractions of the day. Relax your body and surrender your mind as you drift away peacefully. Awaken feeling renewed and ready for a fresh start.

Sleep is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves to take care of our minds and bodies. There are many reasons why we may have a hard time sleeping. Whether we are worried or have a crazy work schedule, if we are experiencing health challenges or side effects of medication. 

In this full length guided meditation you will be drifting off to sleep in paradise. Allow your body and your mind to heal and to rest. 

So, let’s get some sleep…

Benefits of Sleep:

According to Health.gov, it’s important to get enough sleep. Sleep helps keep your mind and body healthy.

Why is getting enough sleep important?

Getting enough sleep has many benefits. It can help you:

  • Get sick less often
  • Stay at a healthy weight
  • Lower your risk for serious health problems, like diabetes and heart disease 
  • Reduce stress and improve your mood
  • Think more clearly and do better in school and at work
  • Get along better with people
  • Make good decisions and avoid injuries — for example, drowsy drivers cause thousands of car accidents every year

Trouble Sleeping

Why can’t I fall asleep?

Many things can make it harder for you to sleep, including:

  • Stress or anxiety
  • Pain
  • Certain health conditions, like heartburn or asthma
  • Some medicines
  • Caffeine (usually from coffee, tea, and soda)
  • Alcohol and other drugs
  • Untreated sleep disorders, like sleep apnea or insomnia

If you’re having trouble sleeping, try making changes to your routine to get the sleep you need. You may want to:

  • Change what you do during the day — for example, get your physical activity in the morning instead of at night
  • Create a comfortable sleep environment — for example, make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet
  • Set a bedtime routine — for example, go to bed at the same time every night

Sleep Schedule

Does it matter when I sleep?

Yes. Your body sets your “biological clock” according to the pattern of daylight where you live. This helps you naturally get sleepy at night and stay alert during the day.

If you have to work at night and sleep during the day, you may have trouble getting enough sleep. It can also be hard to sleep when you travel to a different time zone.

How much sleep do I need?

Most adults need 7 or more hours of good-quality sleep on a regular schedule each night.

Getting enough sleep isn’t only about total hours of sleep. It’s also important to get good-quality sleep on a regular schedule so you feel rested when you wake up.

If you often have trouble sleeping — or if you often still feel tired after sleeping — talk with your doctor.
