Session 1 - Sleep Awareness – Coming to our senses.

This session offers a practical guide to the benefits of mindfulness meditations focusing on present moment experiences in the senses for deep sleep programming.

Our mind gets overactive analyzing, telling us stories: “What if “ “Why”, “Don’t forget”, the past and future. Thinking does not have an “OFF” button.  Mindfulness awareness & meditation training is an evidence-based approach to turning the volume right down, calming our mind/nervous system for optimum wellbeing. 

We will explore of Tai chi/yoga like tension releasing movements, sounds, breathing, training our wandering mind to develop focus, attitudes and intentions to prepare for deep sleep programming.

Session 2 - Living in our heads-Sleepy head

Here we explore neuroscience to understand the brains’ nature.

45% of thoughts we have today are the same as yesterdays!!!

Our mind is often off on autopilot, endlessly evaluate for possible threat/stress. 

Our reptilian hyper-vigilant impulses and thinking can make our thoughts a stormy sea, when we want to float in calm and peace. 

Mindfulness meditations and CBT help us rewire our brain to respond, focus, calm, observe and let go. We explore our favourite thinking patterns, and mindfulness meditations to breaking free create, new habits for soothing, restful sleep and cultivate our wellbeing plan.

Session 3 - Bed Head – Taming our inner monkey brain with kindness and acceptance

Here we cultivate urge surfing, our awareness, mindful attitudes and meditation.

 In our digital age we can get addicted to checking, expecting the instant, getting frustrated with reality, caught in the doing world and forgetting we are humans and need rest!

A digital break for surfing, future based thinking for the pleasures of this moment. We softly, gently, enjoy, calm, peace and the pleasure of sleeping.

Session 4 - Effective sleep - Recognising reactions, letting go, stress and thinking patterns

Here we explore mindfulness everywhere; any day, night, training our minds to respond to life with calm, curiosity, patience and timely actions. 

We cultivate sitting, walking and standing meditations and interrupting/letting go of tension/overthinking.  Enjoy simple activities to create time to pause and check in on reality. We will cultivate insight and connection.

By getting to know our Neanderthal reactions, we can affect our thinking, moods and behaviours. An opportunity to create happiness positivity, choice, perspective and more relaxed.

Session 5 - Understanding how hormones and external factors influence our sleep for greater resilience and restful sleep

Here we gain understanding of how our body clock, hormones, tides, time and sleeping habits affect our sleep. 

With this information, we can create a natural self-care plan. We cultivate meditations, visualisations, aromatherapy, herbs, attitudes, teas and journaling to develop resilience to these changes and have better rest and sleep.

When we move away from our normal rhythms and we cannot sleep, or have disturbed sleep we can notice how horrible we feel. Respond mindfully towards this and harness nature to cultivate new ways of taking care of yourself.
