Insomnia is chronic sleeplessness is a continuous phenomenon....But most of us have trouble falling asleep; and even if we do, we have trouble getting quality sleep; again, even if we do get this, we have trouble waking up in the morning! Now can you identify with any of the situations? I am sure you do.
There's this insight of Osho that i read somewhere so sharing this with you .......
Osho says, “The first thing in the day sets the trend, and the last thing in the night also sets the trend.”
1. Awareness – it takes a few moments for us to sleep. In those few moments and till the time you fall asleep, be very aware: of the silence around you, your body, its positioning and of the darkness.
I you continue with this to the last moment you will notice that the first thought in the morning will also be of awareness. (Your last thought before you go to sleep is the first thought when you wake up. That is why, often, when we have a question that needs answering to, we are advised to sleep over it.)
2. Watch - In the morning, when you wake up, don’t open your eyes immediately. Watch the life energies awakening inside you.
Then, stretch your body like a cat for 3 minutes with closed eyes. Look at the body from within. Feel the energy flowing. Make it 5 minutes if you enjoy it.
Then laugh out loud like a madman with closed eyes. (do not be afraid what others will say. Laugh and help them to laugh.)
(Make sure your eyes are closed throughout).
Sleep will leave you. You will wake up fresh, joyful. No spiraling and tumbling out of the bed. Instead, there will be a spring in your steps and a smile on your face.
Notice your new energy! Your days are going to be different! ‘You’ are going to be different!
till then sleep like a baby ....
