Here are 3 simple things you can do before bed to wake up happier. Going to be
1. Take a minute for gratitude practice.
Studies show that gratitude helps you feel more optimistic and reduces stress and anxiety. Take a few minutes to write down what you’re grateful for before going to bed. Your brain focuses on positive thoughts and makes it harder for it to get stuck in the long-list-of-things-that-stress-me-out cycle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Write down anything you need to remember.
Keep a small notepad on your bedside table. If there’s something swirling in your mind, write it down. It might be a reminder for a work or to call my mum in the morning. Anything that can be moved from your mind to a piece of paper. By writing to-do’s or reminders down, you give your brain permission to stop thinking about them. This is because won’t be forgotten now. Out of sight, out of mind for a good nights’ sleep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Do something nurturing for yourself.
Light a candle you love, take a warm shower, drink your favorite tea (watch out for caffeine) or journal, anything that makes you feel good. It doesn’t have to be complicated or take a lot of time, just make it something that nourishes you.
