Write it down

Good - - HOME -

Rac­ing and ir­ra­tional thoughts and triv­ial, un­re­solved wor­ries can keep us awake. I like to keep a jour­nal or di­ary on my bed­side ta­ble and write down any to- dos or things that seem to be swim­ming around in my mind be­fore bed. I also take this op­por­tu­nity to take note of the things I’m grate­ful for: a cosy bed to sleep in, the de­li­cious din­ner we en­joyed ear­lier, the roof over our heads. Prac­tis­ing grat­i­tude sends a warm feel­ing through my bones, and in­spires a lovely sense of con­tent­ment — just what is needed when fall­ing into bed.
