In this session you will learn how to manage evening anxiety and worry. A 'letting go' mindfulness exercise will help you get some valuable distance from your worries by observing your thoughts rather than reacting to them. By simply noticing what is occurring in your mental flow and allowing your thoughts to arise and pass, you'll ease your anxiety and be able to drift into a deep, restorative sleep.
2. Progressive Relaxation Exercise
Progressive muscle relaxation is a technique that enables you to effectively relax your mind and body through systematically tensing and relaxing muscle groups. During this exercise Dr. Catherine will ask you to tense each muscle group in turn for about five seconds, before releasing. You can do this exercise at any point during the day, but it’s a great one to do in bed, especially if you are aware you are feeling a little tense and struggling to relax.
3. Calm A Busy Mind
Your state of mind at bedtime has a major influence on achieving a good night’s rest. When you feel relaxed, it’s much easier to drift off than when you feel preoccupied with worry. An effective way to stop worry in its tracks is through visualization or guided imagery. In this session, Dr. Catherine will guide you through this technique and enable you to switch your mind into 'sleep mode'.
