1. Fill out your Grateful Log before going to bed.
I consider this my top tip to sleep properly. It is very simple. All you need is a diary and a pen. Make sure that both the diary and the ink you choose are pleasing to your eyes.
I ask clients to write down a full page of things they are grateful for before going to bed. Clients who comply with this advice always report amazing gains in ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Have you ever hurt your fingers and realized how important they are in your day? You become more grateful for them when they heal again. I ask clients to write down at least 10 things that they are grateful for. Every sentence should begin with either “I am grateful for…” or “Thank you for…” It is very calming for the mind and helps you look at the World in a positive light before falling asleep. It prevents the mind from racing all night, and enriches the quality of your sleep.
