Goldman has treatment options that can certainly benefit your pursuit of better sleep in 2017.
Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing relaxation techniques that can help you achieve better sleep in the new year.
- Breathing – Deep, slow breaths have long been lauded for their stress reducing qualities, and that still holds true today. In fact, that is a great way to transition to your nighttime sleep routine. Deep breaths help aid relaxation, reduce muscle tension, slow heart rate, and lower blood pressure.
- Guided imagery – This focused period of imagination can help the mind direct the body towards positive, desirable responses. There are a number of issues that can be assisted by guided imagery, including relieving stress, reducing anxiety, and preparing for sleep.
- Progressive relaxation – This technique involves working with one area and muscle group of the body at a time, tensing and relaxing things. In a nightly power down routine, this can enable you to release physical and mental tension.
