As we wind down from the day, I wanted to share a simple ritual that helps me relax before bed...
When my head hits the pillow, my mind tends to race, keeping me up. I'm sure you can relate! Focusing on my breath for just 5 minutes makes all the difference.
I get comfortable in bed, close my eyes, and silently repeat the mantra “My breath is calm” with each inhale and exhale. Staying focused on this steady rhythm keeps me anchored in the present, letting all other thoughts fade away.
Feelings of tension melt out of the body with each exhale. If my mind wanders, I gently bring it back to the breath.
