How to sleep properly

If you don't sleep well and, as a result, get up tired, then no practice will bring you joy, as well as the very course of life. Therefore, I ask you to pay attention to the advice of Yoga and Qigong Masters. I am sure that you will find a lot of useful things for yourself.

The Five Bamboo Wives of the Emperor

Master Wushu Mu Yuchun explains how to use pillows properly to get a good night's sleep.

What to do if you have insomnia

The cause of insomnia should be sought in your weakness or in what is your strength. In any of these cases, emotions are at war with the brain and thoughts excite consciousness.


If you can't fall asleep, then do Trataka to sort out what's bothering you. You can do dynamic meditation, and then Nada Yoga. If it feels really heavy in your head, thenbeat the dishes, push-ups, squats. Release the energy. It is good to spin in a place with your arms spread counterclockwise. It also helps to get rid of excess emotions. You can just look at the candle... Look... Look... Look... And all the images that come to you, send them to the fire.

The main thing is to stop fighting. You have every right to lie down, look at the candle and not sleep. Make 50 yawns. And the brain will switch.

Master Mu Yuchun recommends three ways to get rid of insomnia.

  • The first is to do breathing with a long-drawn-out sound on the exhale.
  • Second: rub the wrist area in a certain place through a cloth. When it gets warm, you will start falling asleep.
  • The third is to do a head massage, concentrating efforts on the areas that are above the ears. This way you will lower the pressure. High blood pressure is one of the reasons that prevents falling asleep.

Woke up at night — drink some water

Master Mu Yuchun recommends drinking some water if you wake up at night so that your stomach is not dry. In the Chinese tradition, the stomach refers to the element of the earth, and the earth must be moistened. If the stomach is dry, then the tongue will be dry. And the tongue is responsible for the heart. In the Chinese tradition, the heart is fire. It is important to reduce the "fire" of the heart in time so that there are no problems in the future. A little water — and all organs will be pleased.

The water should be at room temperature or slightly warmer. Cold or very hot water is harmful to the body. You may not feel it right away, but it's true.

It is good to drink pre-steamed mulberry berries. Berries contain resveratrol, a compound that has antitumor and anti-inflammatory properties, reduces blood pressure, improves brain function, and protects cells from the effects of free radicals. People with various types of allergic reactions should not consume mulberry. The berry can cause allergies.

The best body position for sleeping

The Sadhguru Yoga master tells us that the head of a person living in the Northern Hemisphere should not be turned to the north during sleep. The location of the magnetic poles affects the quality of sleep. If you lay your head on the north, then the blood will slowly flow to the brain, because the blood contains iron. And increased blood circulation in the brain will make sleep restless. You may have nightmares. For the elderly and those who have problems with the cardiovascular system, the likelihood of stroke increases. But if you find yourself in the Southern Hemisphere, then you can sleep with your head to the north, but it is not recommended to sleep with your head to the south.


The best body position during sleep for the Northern hemisphere

  • The first place head to the east the ideal option.
  • The second is the northeast.
  • The third is the west.
  • The fourth is the south.

Tips for a good night's sleep

The Sadhguru Yoga master talks about the fact that if you feel terrible in the morning for no particular reason, then after a while it can lead to serious physiological problems. It is very important that you eliminate sleep deprivation, so before going to bed, you need to take care of some aspects.

1. Meal time.

You need to eat about 3-4 hours before you go to bed so that the digestive process is completed. At night, you can drink some warm water.

2. Shower before going to bed.

The shower helps to relieve the feeling of anxiety. Just don't make the water too hot. Let it be at room temperature or a little cool. You may think that such a water temperature will cheer you up. Yes, you can perk up a bit and fall asleep later, but the quality of sleep will be better.

3. Light a lamp with organic oil or a candle.

The master recommends a lamp with a wick made of cotton and any cooking oil: olive, linseed, sesame, etc. Light a lamp and do any pleasant meditation. If you don't have a lamp, use a candle.

4. Do not sleep with your head not north in the Northern Hemisphere and with your head on the south in the Southern Hemisphere.

5. Remember that you are mortal.

This is a great practice before going to bed, although the word death scares many. But the real feeling of finiteness of life in this physical body adds awareness. And instead of worrying about what's going to happen tomorrow, you focus on how you lived that day.

Ask yourself questions:

  • What valuable things have I done for myself today?
  • What valuable things have I done for other people today?
  • Have I lived this day intensely and intensely?

Answer these questions before going to bed and the quality of your life will change.

6. Put aside what you have accumulated.

Everything that you have typed into your mind in a day, throw it out of your consciousness. In a dream, neither your emotions, nor your thoughts, nor your feelings will be useful to you. Sleep is a great reason to reboot the body.

Tips for proper awakening

1. Do not use the shrill alarm sound.

The sounds you wake up with affect your condition during the day. If you need to get up with an alarm clock, then use pleasant music. Let her play softly and slowly bring you out of sleep. It is important over time to learn how to wake up naturally or organize your life so that you can do it.

2. When you wake up, rub your palms and put them on your eyes.

There is a high concentration of nerve endings in the palms, which, connecting with the eyes, enliven your senses. This simple action will help to awaken the body.

3. Turn over on your right side, lie down for a while and calmly get up.

This will help the work of the heart. Before you get up, your body and mind should be in an active state.

4. Smile!

Celebrate the new day. Your life is always only one day between waking up and falling asleep.
