Our minds are very powerful. If our mind is racing, it makes us feel mentally alert and physically tense. That doesn’t sound like an optimal environment to fall asleep, does it?
 
The reason counting sheep helps people fall asleep is because it gives the mind something to focus on, and eventually you’ll quiet the mind enough to fall asleep.

While sheep can help, there’s a more powerful and meaningful tool for falling asleep – using mantras! A mantra is a word or phrase that is typically used in meditation to aid in mental focus.

Want to hear more about what mantras are and why we use them? Learn everything you need to know here!
 

The Power of Using a Mantra

A mantra is a word or phrase with a powerful meaning. Repeating the mantra creates a single-pointed focus for the mind. This is why mantras are such an effective tool for centering the mind during meditation.
 

Mantras help calm and center the mind and body so you can fall asleep, stay asleep, and get a good night’s rest.

 
Meditation is the act of centering the mind and body and going inward. Relaxing mind and body is also the key to help you fall asleep. Since mantras are effective for meditation, it makes sense that they’re also effective for falling asleep.

Take Your Sleep to the Next Level

Once you fall asleep it’s all about how well you sleep that determines your level of energy and alertness the next day. If you find that you’re tossing and turning a lot it could be because your body temperature is fluctuating too much throughout the night. Believe it or not, your bedding can play a huge factor in this. It might be time for a bedding upgrade. Take SHEEX® performance sheets for a test sleep.
