💡 More Info:
Today’s task – well actually tonight’s task – aims to deal with all the noise buzzing around your head when you’re trying to fall asleep.
Have you ever got into bed only to lay awake for hours because you are thinking about your to-do list for the next day?
Or maybe your presentation that’s coming up? Or what you are going to take to work for lunch? What you will wear? Or whether your kid is going to stop being so moody with you? Or why some people don’t like pineapple on pizza? Or that embarrassing thing you did 10 years ago?
The list goes on and it may be more or less severe depending on your personality.
🧠 Brain Dump:
A great tool for this is to do a “brain dump”.
All you do is before you get into bed or before you turn off your light, take a few minutes to write down whatever’s bugging you. Dump it all out on paper.
Emails that you need to send or reply to… Great ideas that you have… Appointments that you have to book… That thing you should have said to someone… Heck, even the lyrics to the song that’s stuck in your head.
The simple act of writing them down and putting them down somewhere more permanent can give your brain “permission” to stop obsessing over them and worrying that you’ll forget.
It’s sort of like closing the 50 million open tabs in your web browser.
Whatever is in your brain, get it out and on to paper in any way possible.
Easy peasy, sleep easy.
