Since i have come back to doing a regular meditation routine I find myself dozing off after 5/10 minutes into mo sitting this will keep happening on and off during the entire meditation I am needing some tips to stop this happening.
Before you come up with your suggestions I have a ruled out some suspects below that could be causing this dozing off.
I have a ruled out some suspects below that could be causing this dozing off.
1) I am making sure I am getting much more sleep than I used to and I have a regular sleep pattern I'm doing the best I can with sleep considering I have three small children
1)I am getting between 6 to 7 hours sleep a night which is much more than what are used to get because I've stopped watching any TV or doing anything else to keep me awake at night.
2) I have an active day and I ensure I get enough exercise. I am slim with a muscular build so I am in good physical shape and in good health.
3) I have a balanced healthy diet and I drink plenty of water.
4) since I started making sure I get enough sleep at night I am never dozing off at work or I never feel sleepy during the day anymore.
The only time I feel sleepy is during meditation!
So I'm looking to find out your suggestions on techniques to stop me dozing off during meditation I even take deep breath's once I realised I have just dozed off in the attempt to wake me up but this does not help either.
