The Rest Fully Present mindfulness-based approach to alleviating chronic insomnia is designed, using Dr. Weaver's "art of mindful imaging" and "art of restful presence" strategies, to help you, while in bed, to:
- become fully present (fully aware of your present moment experience);
- detach from your past memories and future fantasies of poor sleep and other stressors;
- accept (notice without judgment) being awake in the present moment; and thereby
- rest more fully while awake and increase the likelihood of your falling asleep and staying asleep restoratively.
