Cure insomnia with these meditation techniques

by Martin Reed on 29 November 2010 in insomnia cures

I've written before about meditation as an insomnia cure but I rarely share meditation or relaxation techniques.

I thought I'd change that today by sharing a couple of articles I recently come across over at

The first article suggests letting your eyes drop out of focus before trying to fall asleep.

The second article suggests focussing your attention on the back of your head.

Apparently, both of these meditation techniques have helped insomnia sufferers drift off to sleep. They work by taking your mind out of its active state and moving it into the theta wave state which precedes sleep.

Scientific explanations aside, I'd always recommend giving meditation a try if you're suffering from insomnia.

Improve your sleep without sleeping pills with my free sleep training. As always, there's more information and advice in our insomnia support group

Interesting thing is, I usually focus on the back of my head to stay awake, not fall asleep, but I could try it. I’m up for anything anymore… to get to sleep, that is. 😛

You’ll find plenty of things to try throughout the blog, Brittany! Thanks for reading.
