MIND MADNESS: WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT?

MIND MADNESS: WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT?

Do you find yourself not getting to sleep due to anxiety, worry, and swirling thoughts that just won?t stop?

Many of my clients and people that I?ve talked to tell me that their sleep suffers on a consistent basis from this mind madness.

When you think about the subject of your thoughts during this anxious cycle, what comes up?

Are there problems at work and you feel helpless and overwhelmed? Are there issues between you and your spouse? Do you worry about your parents? health and how they will be taken care of?

Have you ever considered that this anxiety and worry is unnecessary, and that there is a way to learn to manage your mind and not have the mind madness anymore?

Imagine laying down to go to sleep, and your mind is quiet. Or, the thoughts that remain are peaceful and enjoyable visions that lull you to sleep quickly.

There are many methods used to work on managing our minds. And yes it is work. It?s a process and requires practice. But, which is better, to keep suffering every night with the mental torment and also every day from sleep deprivation? Or, would it be better to learn the tools to manage your mind, practice them and start sleeping more soundly and living with more energy and rejuvenation?

Here are some of the tools used for managing our minds:

– Thought download (a type of journaling), described in my blog post THE WATCHER / OBSERVER
– Meditation, described in my blog post MEDITATION
– Personal Life Coaching (check out my FB Video: What is a Life Coach?)
– Asking ?So what?”

I used to feel anxiety around feeling like I had way too much work and not enough time to do it. These worrisome thoughts would torment me at night and make it hard to sleep. So I know how you feel.

I don?t have the anxiety anymore. I received coaching, and I learned the tools to manage my mind and I use them. This life is much better. There is still a lot of work to do with seemingly little time, but I choose to say ?So what?? This brings me tremendous peace.

OFF-ROUTINE

OFF-ROUTINE

A few weeks ago, I was off-routine, and consequently my mood and productivity suffered.

It started off on Sunday. I woke up to a surprise invitation from some new friends to a free ticket to go with them that night to the Pitbull concert. I was so excited, as I had been interested in going to this but hadn?t bought a ticket. I had also recently been looking for abundance and receiving in my life, and this seemed like a perfect example. (More on abundance and receiving in future posts!)

The concert was such a fun time, but of course I was staying up way past my bed time. I decided to sleep in the next day, in order to get a full sleep and attempt to get back on schedule. I went to a later class at the gym and the rest of Monday and Tuesday got back on routine.

Then, Wednesday morning, I had RSVP?d to attend an early morning networking meeting, and I had decided to skip the gym in order to attend that event. That night happened to be another meeting I had committed to attending with my husband several months prior, and the meeting ended up keeping me up until about 10:30-11 PM that night.

Feeling exhausted from the full day, I decided to skip the gym again in the morning and chose to sleep in instead. The rest of the day and the next few days, I was able to get through the things I had scheduled, but I found myself feeling ?off.?

The lack of adherence to the routine was draining, and my focus suffered for it. I learned a great lesson about really reviewing my calendar and scheduled events and looking at those in light of my bedtime and waking routines.

In the future, I will be more cautious about scheduling early morning and later evening events back to back.

Do you often feel ?off-routine” and have too many events scheduled early and late? Do you even have a structured bedtime and morning routine? Have you considered the benefits of focus and productivity that having the routines could bring to your life?
