Ugggghhhhhh, do you have those nights where your mind is racing and you just CANNOT get to sleep? Your head is churning with thoughts from the day, you start to think about everything you have to do tomorrow, or maybe you even get those BIG, AMAZING ideas as you’re laying there. Whatever it is, you just can't shut it off. It’s like a trigger that as soon as you shut the lights off and get cozy in your bed your brain goes into overdrive. Like your brain says, all Siri style "oh, hello Melissa, it looks like you think you are going to sleep now. Unfortunately, no. I've got other plans for you, let's start with where you'd like to vacation in 3 years from now and go from there..."
Aaaaaand three hours later you look at the clock and wonder why am I not sleeping already?! Le sigh. I. feel. you.
As a small business owner with three highly active kids and a jam-packed schedule, sometimes those moments before drifting off to sleep are the only time I truly have to myself to think. But, if I let the thinking start, I know I will never fall asleep. So over the years, I’ve had to come up with some ways to make sure I can turn off my brain and get to sleep so that I don’t wake up a zombie the next day.
Here are five of my best techniques for falling asleep every night. They aren't rocket science, but maybe they will work for you, too?!
Some nights I am out immediately. Other nights I only need to use one of these techniques to get the job done. Buuuuuut if I’m being honest there are definitely those nights when I need all five. Maybe on repeat. Amirite?! With practice and patience we can all be better sleepers. Find what works for you and make it a habit. Sweet dreams, friend. 🖤
