There have been a couple times in my life when sleep was an issue:
When Benito died, I can remember laying in bed for nights on end - not knowing when the last time I actually slept was.
I can remember laying there in a tight little ball crying in the dark stillness of the night - feeling all alone and like the pain was never ever going to end.
When my mom died, 13 months later, I can remember crying myself to sleep for hours thinking of him - and feeling guilty that I wasn’t thinking of her...
My point is, when your grieving, sleep can be really, really hard.
Here’s a simple tool, that will make it easier:
In Yoga this is called the Sitali Breath and it’s known for quieting the mind and calming the nervous system. In my experience, it works like a charm.
I invite you to give it a try right now so that the next time you’re having trouble sleeping it’s right there waiting for you.
P.S. Because I couldn't resist the out-takes - this is what happens when your hubby is the cameraman and your almost-two-year old is laughing hysterically at your "funny face".
