We end the day with a goodnight sleep and enter a state of relaxation where our body is resting, our mind is in a parallel universe, and our soul is reviving itself. It is essential to have a sleep routine because if we do the right things before going to sleep, we will have lighter thoughts and wake up to a good morning with a fresh outlook on life.
Here are a few positive thoughts you need to have before hitting the bed.
1- Recall The Best Part Of The Day And Be Grateful For The Moments
Before sleeping, think about the best part of your day instead of focusing on what went wrong. It can be something big or small. It can be the morning cup of coffee, the long walk you took, a work you completed or a compliment that you smile. Focus on that thought and feel good about the day, and be grateful for everything you have and experience in this day. Surrounding yourself in a warm glow of calming views before bed will help calm your brain and allow it to drift off. So snuggle up under your comforter, and think soothing thoughts.
2- Picture What Makes You Happy And Imagine Having It
Is there any place you want to visit? A dream house you want to own? A relationship you desire? Go to Pinterest or Instagram and check these pictures out that inspire you and enjoy them. Your subconscious mind is active during bedtime, and when you have good thoughts and a vision, it sends out energy, and you end up feeling good and attracting it. Floating off into peaceful sleep with a lovely scene in your mind will undoubtedly lead to restful sleep.
3- Listen To Positive Affirmations
We need to cleanse our minds before entering the meditative state of sleep. Affirmations are great for interrupting those negative thought patterns. Repeating the same positive thought over and over to yourself will create a belief within you that you are allowed to release the stresses of your day and relax into sleep.
Listen to affirmations and repeat them in your head or say it aloud as you close your eyes and get ready for sleep.
- I am happy in my skin, and i am grateful for my life.
- I am perfect, and i know a universe of possibilities lies inside me.
- I choose peace and calmness.
- I have done my best today, and now i am ready to rest.
- I am proud of myself and genuinely love myself.
- I am going to sleep, and i choose to feel happy at this moment.
- I love the soft bed and the comfortable space.
- I am going to sleep knowing i will wake up to a great day tomorrow.
4- Focus On Your Breathing And Let Go Of Thoughts
Don’t let the random thoughts take space and drift you away. Concentrate on your breathing before sleeping. Count your breaths in and out. Breathe in through your nose for four counts and out through your mouth for eight. If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to your breath, immediately forgive yourself and continue. This will help you feel lighter and get in a meditate state before sleeping.
You can try watching videos or reading before going to bed that keeps you happy and makes you feel lighter. Happy thoughts before bed are a powerful way to remove negativity and help you relax, sleep calmly, and enjoy a good night’s rest.
