There is a great exercise you can walk through each evening, using only your mind! This method can help you shut down your thinking while preparing for sleep. For those of us who oftentimes review our day over and over as we try to sleep – give this a shot – it might help you sleep much better!
As you get ready for bed, every evening, review the events of your day for just fifteen minutes (you can take longer if you have time, and if you want to do so). Ask yourself the following questions:
Consider keeping a journal for these thoughts, but it isn’t necessary. You can easily review them in your mind. However, if you find you are still having trouble turning your mind off, I strongly recommend keeping a journal of these thoughts.
While this exercise isn’t physical in the sense of working your body, it will have positive effects! It helps to relieve daily stress by allowing you to take time out to think about what was important in your day . . . and what might be able to take a back seat in your thoughts. There is a strong mind-body connection that can’t be dismissed.
Try it tonight!
Keep Your Vitality!
