Prepare for tomorrow

new beginning

I had the worst nights sleep ever on Sunday before going back to work. I was not particularly worried or stressed, but my brain seemed to be “waking up” again!! I imagine many other people struggled as well.

This is an extract from a book I’m reading about Mindfulness and I wanted to share it – I think it may help!

“At the end of the day,

When you’re lying in bed at night, before going to sleep, spend a few moments going back over the day….

Think of the people you met and talked to and the events and progression of the day.

If you mind starts to wander off into other thoughts or worries, or thinking about what you have to do tomorrow, gently bring it back to the present and continue reviewing the day in the wavelike motion of your breathing.

You are custodian of your own day. See this exercise as preparing for tomorrow by having put today to bed.

You will be asleep very soon.”

(Tiddy Rowan, Mindfulness)
