Sleep Aid – Muscle Tension Relaxation Meditation – 15 Minutes

by | 15 Minute, Sleep Aid Meditations

Note:  The ending gong has been removed from this meditation so you can use is as a sleep aid and it will not wake you up.  🙂

Many times we go around our day with stress and this plays out in our bodies.  We hold this stress in our muscles and they tense up.  Scanning our body for tension and then consciously releasing this tension helps us physically relax and thus release some stress.

Practicing noticing our muscle tension allows us to be better at recognizing tension early before it becomes chronic causing permanent muscle/nerve damage.

Micro Practice:  Follow these 3 breathing steps…

  1. Breathe and be present in with your breath.
  2. Breathe and scan your body for tension.
  3. Breathe and release this tension.

Enjoy your day!
