Today, I want to share one of my favourite companions for relaxation with you: my eye-pillow!
- Falling asleep with my eye-pillow placed on my eyes is just wonderful! It helps me release any tension from the day and get sound and peaceful sleep throughout the night.
- On my travels, it makes getting good sleep in unfamiliar environments that much easier.
- My afternoon power-nap is even more relaxing and energizing, if I put my eye-pillow. It helps me fall asleep in plain daylight within minutes. 15 minutes later I awake with renewed energy.
- My little companion helps me when engaging in one of the stress relief techniques I call Mini-Retreats that involves visualization. Such as the mini-vacation, where you let your mind visit a beautiful, restoring, relaxing place. Also the Mini-Retreat “rise above”, where you imagine flying up above your life’s current challenges as if you were an eagle and looking at your life from this perspective.
- My eye-pillow lets me focus much easier on stress relief techniques such as “body scan and tension release”, “autogenic breathing” or “progressive muscle relaxation,” which makes the stress relief technique even more effective.
