Meditation

A simple bedtime meditation

Prepare for sleep (pajamas, in bed, lights & devices off, perhaps play soft music or nature sounds).


Now focus on your toes. Imagine one by one each toe relaxing. Starting with the left pinky toe to left big toe.  Now relax the left arch, the left heal, the whole left foot. Do the same with the right side. Continue up through your body, focusing on each part relaxing before moving to the next. From your chest, go to left hand & up to shoulders then the right side.  Then the neck & each area of your face & head. Then allow yourself to sleep.


You may find yourself falling asleep before you finish all of your parts.  That's OK, perhaps even a good thing. Rest.


Namaste.

Anyone can meditate.  Meditation doesn't have to be 'sit completely still, clear your mind & obtain enlightenment'.
Meditation can be done sitting still with the eyes closed, just breathing. It can be deeply focusing on the task at hand. It can be done while exercising. There is no wrong way to meditate, except not to try.
