We all want better sleep, right? You know the kind of sleep that allows us to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, happy, and ready to take on the day. Sleep has been one of my main health focuses in the past few months. I noticed the less that I paid attention to how I was sleeping- the worse my sleep got.
I was tired, groggy, and drinking way too much caffiene to compensate for the lack of it in my life.
So I made it my mission to learn about how to sleep better and what works for me as far as restful sleep. And after the last few months of trial and error- I realized that I have a tendency to be pretty anxious at night. I find myself thinking about the 500 things I want to do the next day instead of drifitng off into a calm, serene, peaceful sleep.
One thing that has worked in quieting the thoughts running through my head has been journaling. I do this in one of two ways. If I’m upset about something, anxious about something, or just need to get something off my chest, I open my notebook and just start writing. It helps tremendously to get everything out on paper and out of my mind.
But if I want to reset, relax, and prime my mind for sleep- I walk through these questions. They are inspired by Tony Robbins and Ed Mylett. (Both of these people are incredibly inspiring and awesome resources for self-growth and change.)
The questions help to put you into a grateful, focused, and peaceful mindset. And I’ve found that to be really incredible for sleep.
6 Questions to Ask Yourself At Night Before Sleeping
- What was great about today, what were the highlights, and what did I absolutely love about the day?
- What have I given today? In what ways have I been a giver?
- What did I learn today?
- How has what I learned added value to my life?
- In what ways did I improve today?
