The first night, I was very tired from doing a lot of outside physical work, so maybe the experience was shaded by that. However, last night I need to note that I had some Easter candy shortly before bed, so the sugar may not have been the best thing to do. Yep - I had sugar candy right before bedtime. *blush*
However, I noticed that I heard more of the audio tracks and speaking than I heard the night before. Yet, the CD ended quickly, so I think I went way out. I do remember hearing that I should stop the player and take the headphones off.
When I did that, I was able to drift back off to sleep. My body felt warm, like a nice afternoon nap in the sun. I felt physically more relaxed and my body was much less tense.
The only thing I noticed is that I woke up a few times staring into the darkness of the night. My eyes and brain started to kick up thinking about all kinds of things. At that moment, I focused on my breathing a little and was able to fall back to sleep.
It was not a night like the first where I slept through the entire night, but I did not at least have to get up and wait for myself to get sleepy. I was able to sleep for the most part and stay in bed. That is an improvement.
Waking up this morning, my body felt less tense and much more relaxed. I feel a greater peace and calmness today. So all-in-all, I probably didn't help myself eating the candy right before bed, but I was still able to get a pretty good night's sleep. Waking up feeling better and more calm is a big improvement for me.
I'm going to keep working on this and I will keep writing some blog posts to share my experiences. I like how Professor Jay Tee has the right inflections and speed of what he says at least for me personally. I feel like I can easily follow along with him, rather than trying to decipher what it is that I'm supposed to do.
For now, I will keep working with it.
Stay tuned for more!
