Get A Good Night’s Sleep With This Bedtime Sound Bath
Anyone else really feeling that hour lost to Daylight Savings this week?
You’re not alone – and, as it turns out, our fatigue isn’t limited to “falling back” for Daylight Savings each spring.
In our recent survey with mindbodygreen, nearly 47% of you said that, in the past year, you have had trouble falling or staying asleep, while nearly 25% of you said you’re getting in fewer hours of shut-eye (not to mention, nearly 10% responded simply: “…what’s sleep?”).
While we can’t solve all of our sleep woes overnight, one of our favorite ways to support a good night’s sleep is with a relaxing sound bath from our friend Phyllicia Bonanno.
Pair the soothing sounds of this bedtime sound bath with a comforting cup of Yogi Bedtime tea for an even more relaxing, stress-relieving experience. This caffeine-free herbal blend combines herbs like Passionflower, Skullcap, Chamomile, and Valerian – each traditionally used in herbalism and Ayurveda for their relaxing, sleep-supporting properties.
Ready to get relaxed? Join us in listening to the soothing, sleep-inducing vibrations of this bedtime sound bath, and be sure to steep yourself a cozy cup of Yogi Bedtime tea before we begin – because there’s no better way to support your wellbeing than by starting with a good night’s sleep!
More About This Bedtime Sound Bath from Phyllica Bonanno
To share this bedtime sound bath, we partnered with Phyllicia Bonanno, a yoga instructor who also practices sound therapy and shares meditative sound bath videos on her Instagram. For this sound bath, Bonanno leads us through a relaxing, pre-bedtime session, to be enjoyed with Yogi Bedtime tea (or, your favorite Yogi Sleep & Stress Relief blend).
I love just closing my eyes as I allow the vibrations of the sounds pass through my body, releasing any stress or tension with each breath. As we enter into this new year, we all need to take a moment to pause, reflect, and rest. Sleep is so important to our overall well-being but can be easily overlooked in the hustle and bustle of life. That’s why I like to wind down my day with a soothing sound bath and a cup of Yogi Bedtime tea. The perfect combination of passionflower, chamomile, licorice, cardamom, and cinnamon make it just right for drinking before bedtime.
Gently close your eyes
Take a deep breath in filling up all the way
Hold it at the top
Exhale with an audible sigh
Releasing any tension, anything you may be holding on to.
Repeat this breath as many times as needed
Follow it with a softer, gentler breath, at an easy pace
