It is a fact that happy people sleep better. Also, people who sleep better are happier. So where do we begin? Which comes first? I keep a journal by my bed on the nightstand. Each night I sit on the edge of my bed, grab the happiness journal, and put the date and day down. I jot down three positive things or blessings for that day. Next, I review some of my other entries.
Even if I read or watch the news, when the lights are out and I put my head on my pillow I say the prayer I do every evening: “Thank you God for this day. Please grant me another day to give love and caring to someone and to also be open to receiving it. Thank you for all you have blessed me with. Keep my family safe and healthy, bring them closer to you, and bless all my clients and staff. Amen.” Then I review the blessings I had throughout the day and the past week in my mind. I keep my mind focused on the positive.
I also make sure my room is a pleasant room to be in, free of clutter, and somewhere I could be proud to show someone else. I sincerely believe clutter makes for poor sleep, and a tidied up room is conducive for a restful night’s slumber.
I hope these tips and suggestions help. Be blessed and have a happy, peaceful rest.
