32. Practice Visualization and Imagery
Do you have a “happy place?” That place may be the key to getting a better night’s sleep. Before you retire to bed at night, do some mental exercises such as imagery and visualization to relax your senses. When practicing imagery, visualize a peaceful or happy memory from your past. Take in every detail. When you can’t think of anything, imagine yourself strolling along the beach or floating in the sea, lying by a babbling brook, or admiring a sunset. It is highly recommended for people who have difficulty sleeping that they practice imagery and visualization exercises before going to sleep.
