Who wants to sleep better at night??? I do, I do!! Along with all of those other great tips about having a dark, cool room, or sprinkling lavender on your pillow case, I have a tip that has helped me have a more restful sleep.
My secret is called a BRAIN DUMP. According the wikipedia, a brain dump is…
Brain dump: the transfer of a large quantity of information to a piece of paper.
Before I go to bed at night, I take out a piece of paper and jot down things I need to do the next day. An example of my brain dump is above. These are the items that will occupy your brain, preventing your mind from settling down at night! By getting them on paper, your brain is freed up so you can relax and sleep well.
While laying in bed, sometimes even more ideas or thoughts come into my head..I keep a post it note and pen in the top drawer of my bedside table and can jot it down without having to get out of bed and write things down. In the morning you can combine the lists and start working on the items!
If you have trouble sleeping at night, give this a try….It works for me!!!!
