Try This Mantra-Based Meditation for Better Sleep

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Ashlee Moosbrugger leads you through a powerful meditation that can deeply relax you before bed.

Practice this mantra-based meditation before bed (or at any point during the day) for deep and relaxing sleep. The eye focus and breath pattern stimulate the pineal gland, which secretes melatonin and helps to regulate your circadian rhythm. The mantra in tandem with the breath consolidates and calms the mind, preparing you for sleep. For best results, practice every night before bed, and if you wake up in the middle of the night, use this meditation to help you fall back asleep and get the rest you deserve.
