Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Pranayama
Yoga Nidra is a form of conscious rest, much like a guided meditation, and is usually done lying down. Nidra can soothe busy minds, settle over-active nervous systems and is deeply rejuvinating.
Take some time to settle, make sure you are warm and cosy, perhaps covering your eyes with a scarf. Turn off the phone and make sure you can rest undisturbed in a quiet place.

PRANAYAMA (BREATHING PRACTICES TO SUPPORT THE FLOW OF ENERGY)
Pranayama can be done before or after doing asana (physical practice of Yoga), or on it's own, at any time of the day or night.
Pranayama techniques usually change the breath in some way and have the intention to transform our mood and energy levels. They can be energising, or relaxing, can be used for healing, or to have a cleansing effect on the mind.
Sit with an long spine, so your chest and belly are open and relaxed. Always be comfortable in your body, and your breathing. If you experience any effects that are unpleasant just stop and rest for a while. Not all practices suit everyone.
Pranamaya Kosha (breath body) awareness practice.
A simple guided awareness focusing on the breath that helps bring attention to the breath and, related to it, the energy body - one of the 5 Koshas (sheaths) of being.
