In the last few weeks, I have discussed this several times in my blogs, on other blogs, or in person. I began this process about 30 years ago. I used to listen to a self-hypnosis tape while I did it and that helped a lot. However, I have found recently that it helps me anytime I need to relax and I don’t need the tape anymore.
What I think is important is that you turn inward and ignore what’s going on around you. When I was in the hospital and the nursing home here recently, I used this a lot through the days and nights to calm down, rest, and/or sleep. It worked well for me and I decided I should share it.
When I do it for resting or sleeping, I try not to move, just relax. After about the 3rd time, I notice that I feel so much calmer and can close my eyes and mostly ignore whatever is going on around me.
What could it hurt? Try it for a few weeks. If it works even just a little bit, that’s a good thing, right?
