Sometimes anxiety strikes at night. You have prepared yourself to go to bed, your body is tired, you just want to sleep. Seemingly out of nowhere thoughts and worries pop up in your mind and they don't want to let you go. You lie awake, you toss and turn, the more you want to ease into rest, the less it seems to become possible.
If you are a lover of the sea, this exercise might be just right for you to ease your mind and to help to relax:
Imagine walking along a beautiful sea shore. You feel the warm sand under your feet, you see the horizon and the waves of the sea, you hear seagulls here and there, the sound of the sea, you feel a light breeze, the warmth of the sun on your skin,
As you are walking, filling your senses,
you notice every 100 metres in front of you numbers drawn in the sand.
It might be starting at 10 going down to 1,
or from 100, 99, 98...down to 1, yet before you approach the numbers a wave comes and washes it away.
Dive fully into this experience and notice:
It is very relaxing.
