Sleep well

Ever since I began meditating every day, I have had no trouble sleeping. I definitely think that regular meditation helps us to get a good night's sleep (=to sleep well in the night). I think one of the reasons is that when we mediate we train our minds to be empty and this is very helpful when we want to go to sleep.

I know however that many people have trouble falling asleep. I only experience this occasionally, but when I do, I find it quite frustrating. Watch and listen to the video for some tips about what you can do to sleep better.

Watch the video and note the four strategies (= plans or techniques) given for getting a good night's sleep.

Watch and listen to the video again and complete the sentences below with NO MORE than THREE WORDS from the video.
