Worrying is what makes us human. And nowadays we have a lot of reasons to be worried. Will it help? It's debatable. Can we control it? Not always. But can we choose when to worry? Yes.
You need to be strict with yourself. Sleep is sacred. At Drowsy we recommend a hard stop for worries. 2 hours before bed we write down everything that’s on our minds. It doesn’t matter how silly it seems.
Once you’ve written down your worries, leave them there until tomorrow.
It’s unbelievably therapeutic, and you’ll find you sleep soundly, knowing everything that was on your mind, is now on paper.
Settle into a comfortable posture, gently close your eyes, and release a full breath. Inhale gently through your nose, silently counting to four. Pause for a peaceful seven seconds, savoring the stillness. Exhale audibly through your mouth, letting go of stress with each breath, for a soothing count of eight.
Repeat this sequence 3-4 times, allowing the gentle rhythm to soothe your mind and body, promoting relaxation and easing you into a tranquil state before bedtime.
Recognize that stress affects both body and mind, tightening muscles and impeding relaxation. Counteract this with gentle stretches to release tension. Follow with a leisurely hot shower, complemented by the comforting ambiance of a drowsy candle, allowing stress to dissolve.
The irresistible combination of fragrant tranquility and warm water sets the stage for blissful rest.
Remember, sleep is more than a mere requirement; it's a vital act of self-nurturing. By prioritizing sleep, you unlock your true potential.
I trust you've found these tips valuable and wish you tranquil, restorative sleep each night.
