Do you go to bed at night thinking about all the things you meant to do during the day, or the one or two things that didn’t go as well as they might? You lie there, going over and over what you wish you had said or done. You think about ways you could have completed something better… how you could have improved an outcome. And then those are the thoughts that wind their way into your subconscious mind as you drift off to sleep. How restful will your sleep be?
Here’s another option and it makes so much more sense! When your head hits the pillow, recognize all the positive things that happened during the day. Recall the calmness you chose when you let the person queeze in front of you on the freeway. Think about the compliment you received from a friend. Remember the pride at being given a special project at work. Feel the love from caring family members and know how appreciated you are. Let those positive experiences turn in to affirmations about how worthy, loved, capable and competent you are. What a gift to yourself to have your subconscious marinate in those thoughts while you’re sleeping!
