Our mind wanders most of the time.
To the past and future.
To judgment and criticism.
Our brain repeats the same thoughts all day.
Getting stuck in stressful thinking.
Creating excessive worry and fear.
In bed your replay these stressful thoughts.
Disturbing your sleep.
Keeping you awake.
Stress keeps your brain active.
It thinks that you need to stay awake to resolve it.
For better sleep, reduce overthinking.
During the day take mindful breaks.
Stop the stressful thoughts.
Calmer mind, less arousal at night.
Remove TV, media & cell phone from the bedroom.
Less stress and worries, the brain can relax.
Also, the blue light from devices disturbs sleep.
Journal your worries.
Let them go before bedtime.
Close your day with gratitude.
Reinforce the goodness in your life.
“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are”- Chinese Proverb
