Whether it's a nap or a night'sThe Mastery of Sleep sleep you're after Get into a comfortable position and begin to relax your muscles. There are many ways you can do this. The way that will work best for you is something only you can devise. Try to successfully "loosen" the tighter areas of your body first--perhaps start with your upper back and neck, legs, feet or hands.
Breath slower and deeper; take ten seconds for one inhale-exhale cycle, with a decent pause with all the air exhaled from your lungs i.e. inhale-exhale-pause then repeat. Exhaling all the air in our lungs helps to loosen the mind and body.
Lighten your mind. Try to mentally shift the focus off any problems and stressors/stresses you might currently have and shift that focus onto only the next very simple thing. But only do this when you're sufficiently relaxed.Try to imagine with your eyes closed how it feels for your eyes to flip backwards very slowly and gently under your eyelids. This would mean that your eyes are looking up; or at least it feels that way.
What you're doing is not moving the eyes at all you're just so relaxed you're able to "feel" your eyes going to sleep; so relaxed they do what they do with no tension--they fall asleep, and so do you.What we're doing here is merely replicating those initial moments of Stage 2 sleep (Stage 1 being drowsiness) going into the deeper levels of Stage 3 and so on. Imagine how your eyes feel, in the physical sense, as you start to drift into the unconsciousness of sleep.
