There I was, in bed at a decent time trying to get comfortable. Long story short, I was laying there, and laying there, and laying there. Sleep would not come to me. I usually would have fallen asleep by now. Before I knew it ,30 minutes had passed and I was still awake. I could not turn my mind off enough to get to sleep. I was actually thinking about getting this blog started so my mind was racing.
Once I realized that I wasn’t going to get any rest unless I did something, I took action! I didn’t start blogging but I did the next best thing. I opened my journal/planner and started writing away. Getting all my thoughts and ideas out of my head and on to my paper worked like a charm. I’ve even typed notes in my phone a few time just to keep my mind clear before bed. Once it was there I didn’t have to worry about forgetting things. That alone helped me to rest easier.
The next time you can’t sleep because you are thinking about work, cleaning, and the never-ending list of things you MUST do, jump to action! Get it out of your mind, on to paper or in your phone, then put it all down and rest. You will need all the rest you can get to tackle that list in the morning. Rest well.
