Straining while sleeping
#1
I've noticed that i strain a lot while sleeping. For one, my entire body is tight and contracted, the covers are always pulled up to my neck, and my neck is not relaxed. I found a solution to this problem. First, i would put the covers down to my abdomen, stretch out my body, and tilt my neck back. Clearing the mind helps quite a bit as well. Another thing i try to do is to become aware of the body. When i employ these methods, i wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready for the day.

Well good, it sounds like you've found a solution. You can also play with Long Swings before going to bed, Dr. Bates' recommendation for staring while sleeping and waking up with tired eyes. I also wondered if you were warm enough, maybe pulling the blanket up to your chin to keep your neck from getting cold, and needed an extra blanket.

It was a bad habit that i acquired as a kid. I guess it was a combination of the fact that i hate the cold, i wanted to feel safe. I guess i didn't feel safe enough.

I had problem like that few years ago, and neck muscles are to blame, but in order to relax your neck muscles, you have to work on your posture and spine.
