While meditating in the morning sets a powerful intention for the day, meditating at the end of the day helps create a natural boundary between the stress of the day and your “me” time.
It's a wonderful way to bring the mind home, to collect up your scattered mind, recenter your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and put them to bed.
- Feel tired and stressed at the end of the day?
- Still think about work at home when you should be relaxing?
- Struggle to settle your mind down before bed?
- Feel physically tense and uncomfortable?
- Suffer from negative/fearful thinking as the day draws to a close?
Our Evening Meditation helps you set a powerful intention. It signals to your mind that it is time to slow down, to let go and be calm.
It can be difficult to be mindful during the day, especially when you’re busy, stressed, and your mind is being pulled in different directions.
We are constantly distracted. And when we do have a few brief, quiet moments, we fill them by checking our phones and email.
Practicing a routine meditation at the end of your day brings all the distraction to a peaceful close.
Not only will you benefit from a more relaxed evening and a peaceful mind, but you”ll find your sleep improves too.
How Evening Meditation Helps Your Sleep Better
The primary goal of listening to the Evening Meditation is not to fall asleep while listening but to center the mind and relieve stress, tension, and anxiety.
However, the knock-on benefit of this meditation is better sleep when you do go to bed later that night.
It stands to reason that the calmer your mind and more peaceful you feel, the faster you will fall asleep faster.
This is corroborated by science.
In one study, researchers looked at how meditation affected 49 adults with moderate sleep issues. The study subjects were randomly assigned 6 weeks of meditation or good sleep hygiene methods.
Results showed that the meditation group experienced fewer symptoms of insomnia and less daytime fatigue.
Additionally, meditation also has the following health benefits:
- improved mood
- lower stress levels
- reduced anxiety
- improved cognition
- reduced pain and tension
- lower blood pressure
- reduce inflammation
About Evening Meditation
The Evening Meditation is a low Theta binaural beats track. It uses Theta frequencies at 4.9 Hz, a frequency associated with deep relaxation, introspection, meditation, and subsequent deeper sleep.
The music in the composition is tuned to 852 Hz, using the Solfeggio reference scale. This frequency is associated with higher planes of consciousness and is said to bring us in tune with our higher self.
The composition is a fairly sparse soundscape. Subtle piano notes and distant bells weave around a soft bed of ambience, evoking a feeling weightlessness and letting go.
In the background a stream can be heard, just enough to feel soothing and not intrusive.
How to Use This Meditation
The track was designed with evening meditation in mind. Therefore, ideally, the track should be used in the early evening, perhaps after work or when you have put the kids to bed.
However, you may choose to use it at other times.
For best results: find a quiet space, inside or outside of the house (weather depending).
If you are lucky enough to live in a warm climate, or it is summer time, the Evening Meditation is perfect listened to outside when the sun is going down – perhaps in the garden, on the porch, or in the park.
You can listen after dark too, so no worries if the season means the nights are drawing in early.
Sit down on a chair or anywhere comfortable. You can sit in the meditation (lotus) position, if you find this comfortable.
Then slip on your headphones and press play.
You can close your eyes if you want, but the idea isn't to fall asleep, but rather to collect your thoughts, let them dissipate and bring your mind home.
You will receive a 30-minute and 1-hour version in your download package, so choose whichever duration best suits the amount of time you have.
