You can fall asleep with positive thoughts in your head instead of stress or fear.
You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping. What if you could start and end each night with positive thoughts?
To create a more positive mindset, try these:
- Make a gratitude list. What are the things you’re grateful for? Who are the people you’re thankful for? Showing gratitude can help retrain your brain to think positively.
- Smile at yourself in the mirror. Smiling releases natural pain relievers and mood elevators in your body, which helps reduce stress and promotes relaxation.
Here are some examples of affirmations that might help you relax before sleep:
- “I am thankful for my amazing life”
- “My future is bright and filled with happiness”
By filling your mind with positive thoughts before bed, you can sleep better at night!
