Master your sleeping and waking – Sadhguru (Cyprus)

According to Indian mystic and spiritual master Sadhguru, the time of repose allows uninterrupted incubation of either positive or negative thoughts, which are then carried over into our waking life, to impact our wellbeing, for good or ill.

For this reason, Sadhguru cautions us to cultivate better sleeping patterns, and offers the following 10 suggestions, to implement before retiring and upon waking:

  1. Eat no later than 3-4 hours before sleep, so that digestion is complete
  2. Take a cold or lukewarm shower before sleep
  3. Light a cotton wick with an organic oil (e.g. sesame, olive)
  4. Avoid sleeping with your head facing north in the Northern Hemisphere, and towards the south in the Southern Hemisphere. You want to avoid the poles’ magnetic pull drawing your blood to the brain and potentially causing dangerous haemorrhages
  5. Just before falling sleep, imagine yourself on your deathbed and reflect upon your past 12 hours
  6. Put everything aside and sleep as a piece of life, not a bundle of thoughts
  7. Avoid starting your day with a loud, abrupt alarm
  8. Rub your hands together and place your palms over your eyes to bring your body awake. Your system should be awake before you get out of bed.
  9. Roll to your right side when you get up to avoid undue stress on your heart
  10. Awaken with a smile, after all… many will not have lived to see this day
