So once you have your bedroom set up to help you have the quality of sleep you deserve these audio story's can help you with next steps.

They will assist you practise:

- relaxing

- mindfulness

- self awareness

Using these audio's should be fun. So some reminders:

- If your using them with a child let them decide which one to use

It is normal for all of us to have 1 or more as a favourite and one or two not enjoy

- They work best if used regularly They are helping create positive habits. Habits take time to form.

I trust you'll enjoy them as much as we have. Best to you.

Triggers:

Triggers are words or phrases or other items that bring back or cause unpleasant feelings.

It is normal for all of us to have the experience on an occasion. So, should you or another listener have that happen don't hesitate to listen to another one of the audios.

Warning: To date I've only had 3 listeners or a parent write me. One was about a young boy who did not wish to "Be a Ball and Bounce. Balls get kicked and that would hurt." A very valid point. He loved the Be A Horse and Be a Bird programs instead. Another was from a parent who feel asleep listening and their three year old wandered the house for three hours with no one else awake. The third was from a parent who's child is afraid of heights so she did not want to listen to the Be A Bird program. Understandable.

You can find the Imagine Yourself audio programs in the Resource section at the end of the program.



One more time: NOTE: Never use while operating any type of equipment moving or stationary.

Sleep Room or Sleep Cave Audit Replacement Video

How we set up our sleep room or sleep cave (Dark and quiet - hence the cave comparison) makes a difference to how long we sleep and how well we sleep. The purpose of the audit is to get you to take an inventory of your sleep room. Then once you've done the audit you can start to make changes. One at a time.

I wish you all the best.

Imagine Yourself with a great nights sleep.
