After not getting enough sleep last week, as I mentioned in my previous Nurturing Thursday post, I’ve been making more of an effort to stay well rested. I wear a Fitbit at night to keep track of my sleep; it’s not entirely accurate, but close enough to let me know when I should go to bed earlier.

Meditation also helps with restful sleep. I find Reiki very refreshing, and a few days ago I browsed through a collection of animated sleep mantras, which I enjoyed. Here’s one of the images from that page (reposted with permission). Very soothing—I could definitely doze off looking at it.

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens and seeks to “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy.” Visit her site to find more Nurturing Thursday posts and a list of frequent contributors.


  1. Meg, I haven’t heard of “sleeping mantras”. I like the idea of these. I am going to try them. Thank you for sharing!
