Destressing by way of appreciation and sleep is what I'd like to ramble about this day!
How are you doing?
I pray a powerful prayer that you are clear, happy, and healthy.
Got some questions for you...
Are you experiencing any fatigue?
Do you have difficulty falling asleep?
Do you have a hard time staying asleep?
Did you know that sleep is vital because it takes energy to handle stressful situations?
Do you know that stressful times can and will make it difficult to fall asleep and/or stay asleep?
It may be due to a racing mind if it is not easy for you to fall asleep or stay asleep. Therefore, one of the most important things one can do before sleep is quiet the mind so that the thousand thoughts in the head cease.
One way to quiet your mind is to focus on the sounds as you listen to this video.
But what if it is too challenging to lay in bed at night and focus on listening?
The answer is that you could change your thoughts by way of appreciation.
You could think of things that you really appreciate and are grateful for.
You could think of things that happened during the day that you really liked.
You could think of any angelic beings that crossed your path this day.
You could think of anything fun or funny that happened this day.
Stress is provoked by things we think about in the state of anger, anxiety, or depression, aka forms of fear. We may be angry about something at work or at home. We may be anxious about the future due to finances or health. We may have deep sadness over any life situation.
It is pretty impossible to relax when we think about stress because it is the opposite of relaxing.
When we think of people, places, and things we appreciate, we feel better and can relax.
Please know, and understand I am not asking or telling anyone to ignore the horrible things happening in life; I am asking stressed-out people to change their focus so that they may sleep.
We have the power to choose our thoughts, and if you do not believe that is true, one day, you will. One day you will know the power within you to choose healing or hurting, helping or hindering.
Every night, before I go to sleep, I pray a powerful prayer of appreciation. That means I thank God for everything I have and all the beautiful things that happened throughout the day. With practice, I've become so good at it; I can, and do, go on and on about the beautiful and brilliant things that happened.
Every night I fall asleep right away, right after my prayer. I lay my head on the pillow, and I am out.
Every morning, I wake up eager, excited, and exhilarated for the day.
I know with all my heart and soul that my deep sleep and renewed energy are because of my habit of appreciation for life and my connection to God.
Choose to focus on appreciation for all the thingys before you sleepy. Go on and on and on in your head, and make it a habit.
Practice it into permanence, and watch you destress yourself and your sleep.
Your life is really the most essential thing in this world to you because the choices you make will break or make it.
You've got the power, my friend!
Have a wonderful day!
I care for you!
I love you!
God cares for you and loves you!
He is giving you all good things for your spiritual expansion.
Until next time!
