About one third of human life is spent sleeping.
It’s a huge chunk of time therefore it’s important
To prepare yourself properly for a good night
So that you will wake up feeling sunny and bright.
The next day will be problematic if you can’t
Give attention to your nocturnal upkeeping.
Sometimes you may wake up feeling way out of whack
For no reason apparent. You can incubate
Either good or bad feelings as you fall to sleep.
Naturally it comes down to what kind of sheep
You are counting. One does not have to speculate
On the cause of your feeling profoundly off track.
Eat at least three to four hours before going to
Sleep so that digestion is already complete.
Drink some water and take a nice lukewarm shower.
The sensation of water tends to empower
The body to relax. It’s important to treat
Yourself kindly. You’ll be rewarded when you do.
What you think is your body is not. So, remind
Yourself of this. Breathe in, “I am not the body.”
Then breathe out, “I am not the mind.” In this way you
Release lots of resistance. Besides, it is true.
You deserve to sleep soundly and wake up carefree
With the issues of yesterday left far behind.
