Sleep Meditation!

Recommended Posts

I've been listening to this on my iPhone under my pillow for the past couple nights to help me fall asleep. I often find nighttime for me is the hardest time to wind down and a routine really does the trick. Does anyone else do guided meditations?

Yes, I've been doing them since 2015. I don't think I could have stopped drinking without them. I also read a lot of books about mindfulness in general and really tried to get into the ethos of it. It helped me a lot. Wish I could get back to that but it takes quite a lot of effort and discipline. It's easier if you're a Buddhist monk! 😆

I'm glad they've helped you as well. It's helped me a lot with times of grief and acute physical pain. Where I am panicking and not sure I can handle pain. There is something about guided mediation (and the audio telling you to breathe) I find really comforting. I wonder if we can make a thread and do a weekly group meditation and keep ourselves held accountable to give ourselves at least one meditation a week? Even if it's 10 minutes of breathing exercises?

I think that's a great idea in principle. Do you think there are enough active members to make a group meditation work? Are you meaning we'd all meditate at the same time?

I'm sure if we tag a few people crossing both from AC and AS (and maybe inviting others from other places); we can get a good group of people. I can also out-reach on social media to get people to join in via social posts. 🙂 It could be played around with; it could be at the same time; it could be "when you go to bed" (and people review a meditation style in posts); it could be something we all need to be active on at the same time to post. There is many different styles we can do (and combo).
