Do you lay awake at night, ruminating about your day? Already thinking about what needs to be done tomorrow? Your mind just keeps racing, you keep looking at the clock, so tired yet you can’t sleep. I know the feeling!
A month ago I signed up for 40 days of Health Living at Namaspa in Bend, Oregon, where you commit to yoga and meditation as well as mindfulness for 40 days. You start out slowly with meditation. 5 minutes in the morning, 5 minutes at night. How hard is it to fit an extra 10 minutes in your day? Then you increase to 10 minutes. I still haven’t gotten into the habit of meditating in the morning but now I am up to 15-20 minutes at night. It really has improved my ability to fall asleep.
It’s free, but you can upgrade. However, I still use the free one.
Insight Timer states they offer the largest free library of guided meditations. I go straight to the guided meditations and select sleep, then how much time I want. You can use the filter for music, if you want talking, female or male voice , background music and if you want to hide spiritual or religious content.
Free trial, then it costs $59.99 a year

I first listened to this during Seawheeze half marathon in Vancouver, B.C. Very relaxing. I liked the themed meditations and the mindfulness exercises. It really gave you something to think about. They also have the usual ones for sleep. You can get a new meditation delivered to your phone each morning.
These 3 meditation apps will be sure to lull you to sleep.
