Mindful Sleep | One Good choice can lead to many others

What is mindfulness?

a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

We practice mindfulness to achieve serenity, peace, and success; within us is what we need to be the greatest us.

Sleep though those who are successful are known for sayingI’ll sleep when I die” is important for your mind. If you do not read that muscle it will not function at its best. I’m a late sleeper and early riser, though it works me, I must be mindful of my body and when it’s had enough.

My current goal is bed by 10:30pm and awake by 5:30am. Once my body is rested, I’ll adjust my schedule for my goals to bed by 11:30 and wake by 5:30. I know 6 hours is a little risky but dreams take sacrifice.

  • I say all of this to conclude to that sleep affects your mindfulness. Lack of sleep can lead to
    • bad moods
      bad choices
      ill thoughts
      sluggishness
      over sleeping when you shouldn’t
      health issues and more

    Don’t be afraid to change your schedule to get a few extra hours of sleep. Being well rested can be a game changer and make or break the goals you have set.

    If you have trouble sleeping like me try:

    • Warm drink like tea before bed
    • Yoga
    • Meditation
    • Calm app
    • Lite music
    • Counting sheep
    • Turning off all distractions (tv, phone, etc)
    • Candles
    • Baths / showers
    • Massage
    • Sex (masterbation)
