Sadhguru’s 10 Tips To Sleep Well & Wake Up Well

Sadhguru: You can incubate a lot of either
negative things or positive things in sleep. This is getting too easy – just sleeping sadhana, hmm? So coming awake to an alarm bell with a sudden start
is not the best way to do your life. Sadhguru: How many of you find that one day
morning when you get up, without any reason you are just feeling ugly for no reason. If it is happening even at least two, three times a year, if it is then you must do certain things before
you go to bed, it’s very, very important. Because unconsciously, you need to understand this, you can incubate a lot of either
negative things or positive things in sleep. Either pleasantness or unpleasantness,
you can incubate very effectively uninterrupted in sleep. You can also incubate it in the day but there
are so many interruptions. It doesn’t happen very efficiently but if you have a tendency to go to bed in a certain way and you wake up in the morning really nasty for simply no reason, that means you are incubating things
in the night very efficiently – bad eggs. This is not just about psychological disturbances. It can cause major physiological
problems over a period of time. It’s important that you eliminate
these things from your life. Superscript: Tips to Sleep Well So before you go to bed in the night, there are
certain things that you need to take care of. Superscript: Tips to Sleep Well
1. Meal Times & Sleep Times It’s best if you are eating meat and other kinds of meals you eat at least three to four hours
before you go to bed, the digestion is over. Before going to bed drink a
certain amount of water and go to bed. You will see it gets taken care of just like this. Superscript: Tips to Sleep Well
2. Take Shower Before Sleeping One simple thing can be, just a shower. Always to shower before go to bed,
it’ll make a lot of difference. In this weather maybe cold showers are difficult
so you go for lukewarm showers. Don’t go for hot showers in the night,
go for lukewarm showers. It makes you alert. So you will think oh I cannot sleep. It doesn’t matter. You’ll sleep fifteen, twenty minutes or
half-an-hour later but you will sleep better because it will take away certain things. When you shower it is not just the dirt on
the skin that you are taking away. Have you noticed, if you are very tensed and anxious, whatever,
just a shower you came out it feels like almost the burden has been taken away from you? Have you not noticed this? So it’s not just about washing the skin. A whole lot of things happen. When water flows over your body. This shower is a very rudimentary Bhuta Shuddhi because over seventy percent
of your body is actually water. If you run water over it, a certain purification happens
which is beyond cleaning the skin. One more thing if you want to do, you just light an
organic oil lamp, a cotton wick, some oil – anything. What do you use here? Normal cooking oil, lint seed oil, rice bran oil or sesame oil,
what do you have? Participant: Olive oil. Sadhguru: Olive oil, fine. Any organic oil with a cotton wick, just burn
a little lamp somewhere in the room where you sleep. You will see these things will completely disappear. If you can bring in a chant or there are nightly practices,
yogic practices before you go to bed, sit on your bed and do this practice. If you want to do Isha Kriya, it’s available on the net. Generally in India they told you, you should
not put your head to the north and sleep. You are aware of this? Participants: Yes. Sadhguru: If you put your head to the north
and sleep during the night when you… when you are in horizontal positions then slowly
the blood will get pulled towards your brain. When there is too much circulation
in the brain you cannot sleep peacefully. If you have any kind of you know, inherently week aspects in your brain
or if you are of old age you could die in your sleep. One can have hemorrhage because extra blood is trying to enter the brain
where the blood vessels are hair like, something extra is being pushed
because of the magnetic pull. When you are in a vertical position, this is not so. The moment you become horizontal,
this pull on the head is so strong that slowly the blood tries to move towards the brain. So to avoid this… This is true only in the northern hemisphere. If you go to Australia you should
not put your head to the south. If you are in India you should not put your
head to the north. You can put it any other way, it’s okay. Keep this in your mind that you are truly a mortal, okay, not in words, really. You could fall dead right now. You may be young, you may go old, it doesn’t matter. You can fall dead right now. Yes or no? Before you go to bed, sit on your bed and think this is your deathbed. You have just one more minute to live. Just look back and see what
you have done today is it worthwhile. Just do this one simple exercise and you don’t know when it really happens. Whether you’ll be sitting on your deathbed
or lying in a hospital all kinds of things sticking into you. Who knows how it’ll happen? But enjoy this every day that you’ll sit
on your deathbed, look back and see today the way I have handled these twenty-four hours
is it worthwhile because now I am dying. If you do this you will live a worthwhile life, believe me. So every day in the night all of you should
do this before you go to bed. Last three minutes everything that you have gathered – the body, the content of the mind, things, don’t ignore small things these small things are big things. I have seen how people are carrying their…
their own private pillow, you know (Laughter) because it’s very important. So your pillow, your footwear, if you have relationships, everything that
you have gathered keep it aside, sleep. If you sleep in that condition you will wake up
with much more light, with much more energy, with much more possibilities
than you have imagined possible. Just sleep as life, not as a man, not as a woman,
not as this and that. Keep everything down. Simply. Some… this is getting too easy- Just sleeping sadhana (Laughter). At least this you must do. So what kind of sounds come awake to will determine the context of the day
and the future of your life in many ways. So coming awake to an alarm bell with a sudden start
is not the best way to do your life. It is best that if you need a certain amount of sla… if your body right now because of the
kind of food that you consume and the kind of thoughts and emotions that you process within yourself accordingly you may… and the level of vibrance
that you’ve managed within your body will determine how much sleep you need. Let us say you need three… I’m sorry (Laughs), let’s say you need eight or twelve hours of sleep. I was saying the wrong number (Laughs). Whatever amount of sleep you need,
you know how much you need. So you go to bed early enough
so that you come awake naturally. If you’re coming awake naturally, and suppose you have a doubt
whether you’ll come awake or not, if you have a certain chant, if you’ve identified
one of the Vairagya chants you can use it. Physiologically one important
aspect of you is your heart, the pumping station for your blood circulation
which pumps life across the body, this one thing doesn’t happen, nothing happens. This starts from left side. So we told you… you know, in India they have told you when you wake up you must roll
to your right side and get up. Have they? Left side if you roll and get up,
bad things will happen to you. Did they tell you? Bad things are not about that, when you are in a certain state of relaxation, when the body is in a relaxation,
the metabolic activity is low. When you get up there is a certain surge of activity. That’s why they told you India, see, all these things are built into your life
which you are throwing away. A whole science of living has been built into your life. They told you in the morning before you wake up, you must rub your hands together and see like this (Gestures). Hmm? Not see like this, you must place it upon your eyes. You do this (Gestures – rubs hands), you will see god. It’s not about seeing god, if you rub these
two things together all the nerve endings, there is a heavy concentration of
nerve endings in your hands. If you do this, the system comes awake immediately. You’re feeling asleep, you’re feeling sleepy
just do this (Gestures – rubs hands) and see. Everything comes awake. So morning before you move your body you get it awake first and then place it upon your eyes instantly a whole range of nerves connected with your eyes and the other aspect of your senses come awake. Before you move your body, your body
and your brain should be active. You shouldn’t get up dumb. That’s the idea. You understand (Laughs)? So you do that and then
roll over to your right and get up. Today if all of us go to bed by tomorrow morning nearly a quarter million people won’t wake up. Natural death in the world. Suppose you wake up tomorrow, you guaranteed? Have you come with a guarantee card? No guarantee card. So suppose you wake up let’s say, just do this much, I’m telling you, this is a
simple-first step to your spiritual process. Tomorrow morning when you come awake,
check, you’re really awake or you dead? If you are awake, it needs at least a little celebration. You don’t have to get up and dance,
at least you can smile, still on! Quarter million people died they were like you and me,
pupp (Gestures), they went off, isn’t it? Wherever you look they are not there. Here I am still alive. One big smile, will you? I’m talking management (Few laugh). Then if quarter million people died, at least, three to five million people
lost somebody who is dear to them. You check those three, four, five people
who matter to you, all of them alive today. One more big smile? Hello? Will you or not? Alive (Gestures). If suppose right now we put a gun to your head,
will you think it’s a relief? No. You’ll be terrorized, isn’t it? So that’s how precious it is to be alive. Isn’t it so? That’s how precious it is for you to be alive. So tomorrow morning, a quarter million
people died overnight but you still alive, does it not at least deserve a big smile, I’m asking you? And all the people who matter to you are all
alive today, one more big smile!

My grandmother would say, ''It's a good day when you can see it.'' I still say that. I made it to another day and another opportunity to be grateful.

Sadguru ji I'm struggling to wake up early I can't,I don't know what to do I'm trying to wake up early but after I wakeup I finish my bath and Do pooja after that I become like moody laziness my body feel weak and I tend to slp sometimes

If with meditation our energies improve but physical is not improving at that rate, do well feel more sleepy?

Good material, but let's not turn the wisdom of the teacher into Hindu chauvinism. Truth is universal. We can do away with the ritual Hindu music and still be quite content with the unpolluted message

Almost all good tips BUT,
1) lighting lamps not needed for light reduces oxygen level in the room and more carbon dioxide in surrounding which is not advisable.
2) Getting up from sleep should be on your LEFT side as also you should not be sleeping on your RIGHT side.
Please enlighten us.

so what rly helps me sleep better is to go do some pushups or run for 5 to 10 mins with some rock music like deltaparole. the getting out of bed and doing smth and music is important cuz that takes ma mind off of sleeping and relaxes me and when i start sleeping relaxed, i sleep better. just dont think about sleeping in bed. best of luck fellow sleep warriors
