When you wake in the morning are your first thoughts grateful and happy ones or are they the worries that you took to bed with you the night before?
Worries do that you know! Take them with you to bed and they will patiently wait for you in the morning (assuming they let you sleep) to begin anew their assault on your emotions.
Taking your concerns and worries to bed with you is a habit. Yes there is always one or more “somethings” that will need to be dealt with. But going to an emotional place and dwelling on them does not solve anything. Stewing over them in bed is a sleep killer.
Change the constant worry habit. Try to put your worries to bed first. Come up with a creative way of laying them aside until the next day. Constant worrying changes nothing, and it competes with your conscious ability to problem solve.
So thought of the day: Before retiring; listen to music, read a bit of a book, do a work-out, take a warm bath, do something pleasant with a partner (like a discussion … ahem!). Just anything that will remove those worrisome thoughts from the forefront.
BREAK THE NIGHT TIME WORRY HABIT! Do try to save those worries for the day! When you are fully rested.
Thank you for visiting me today, have a worry free evening and good night’s rest tonight!
