When I’m tired and when I’m not sleeping well, my favorite remedy is yoga nidra, usually in the afternoon. It feels like super napping. I arrange a nest for myself of blankets and pillows, preparing to stay entirely still in a supremely comfortable position. I find a recording on youtube or choose one from the free yoga nidra website. I like to do a different one each time, it makes it more interesting. And then I put in my headphones and relax into a deep trance state, following the voice.

When I come back to wakefulness I feel well rested and alert. I sleep better that night. Yes, I am an herbalist, but yoga nidra works better to help me stay well rested than any herbal remedy I’ve tried.
