Back Christmas Anxiety Cure by Anandi

When you don’t sleep well at the best of times, it creates a lot of anxiety.  

Imagine not sleeping on Christmas Eve when you’ve got a load of people turning up for Christmas lunch!

You’re not sure how you’re going to cope and Christmas will be ruined for you.  You’ll be feeling like a zombie and you’ll just be in survival all day long smiling politely at your guests.

If you’ve ever missed a few night’s sleep in a row, you’ll know what I am talking about.  

I use Yoga Sleep as my survival tool and I’d love to share it with you.

Yoga Sleep (or Yoga Nidra in Sanskrit) is a soothing practice designed to take you into a deeply relaxed state. It will calm your emotions and create a deep sense of inner tranquillity, just what you need if you’re cooking Christmas lunch! One hour of yoga nidra is equivalent to approximately four hours of sleep, and it will most certainly help you cope with sleep deprivation. It will take you into a relaxed state that’s deeply nourishing for your mind and body. 

Collapsing on the sofa is not sufficient to deal with the amount of deep seated stress and tension that accumulates when you don’t sleep well. 

Yoga sleep is a much better solution and is an effective way of: 

Promoting deeper more restful sleep   

Easing headaches 

Deeply relaxing the mind and body

Improve your memory and concentration

On the lead up to Christmas, make Yoga Sleep is a daily practice.  I recommend doing it in the evening before bedtime.  It’s so easy and no stretchy black yoga pants necessary.  All you need to do is lie on your back with a fluffy blanket and pillows and let me guide you.

As a special gift for the Sleep Show readers, I’m giving free access to my Yoga Sleep Course for a limited time only. Here’s the link:

Once you’ve read the instructions and downloaded the audio, put a do not disturb notice on your bedroom door, get yourself into your favourite cosy clothes or your pyjamas and switch me on. Just let your body float and dissolve into the earth while you’re following the instructions.

Then, you’ll get some well-deserved rest. Happy Yoga Nidra and Happy Christmas.
