MIND MADNESS: WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT?

MIND MADNESS: WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT?

Do you find yourself not getting to sleep due to anxiety, worry, and swirling thoughts that just won’t stop?

Many of my clients and people that I’ve talked to tell me that their sleep suffers on a consistent basis from this mind madness.

When you think about the subject of your thoughts during this anxious cycle, what comes up?

Are there problems at work and you feel helpless and overwhelmed? Are there issues between you and your spouse? Do you worry about your parents’ health and how they will be taken care of?

Have you ever considered that this anxiety and worry is unnecessary, and that there is a way to learn to manage your mind and not have the mind madness anymore?

Imagine laying down to go to sleep, and your mind is quiet. Or, the thoughts that remain are peaceful and enjoyable visions that lull you to sleep quickly.

There are many methods used to work on managing our minds. And yes it is work. It’s a process and requires practice. But, which is better, to keep suffering every night with the mental torment and also every day from sleep deprivation? Or, would it be better to learn the tools to manage your mind, practice them and start sleeping more soundly and living with more energy and rejuvenation?

Here are some of the tools used for managing our minds:

– Thought download (a type of journaling), described in my blog post THE WATCHER / OBSERVER
– Meditation, described in my blog post MEDITATION
– Personal Life Coaching (check out my FB Video: What is a Life Coach?)
– Asking “So what?”

I used to feel anxiety around feeling like I had way too much work and not enough time to do it. These worrisome thoughts would torment me at night and make it hard to sleep. So I know how you feel.

I don’t have the anxiety anymore. I received coaching, and I learned the tools to manage my mind and I use them. This life is much better. There is still a lot of work to do with seemingly little time, but I choose to say “So what?” This brings me tremendous peace.

MEDITATION

I started meditating about one year ago. I was first introduced to the idea from one of the coach training courses I’ve completed, the Quantum Success Coaching Academy (QSCA). The QSCA program included many bonuses, such as the Abundance Principle Coaching Program and the Divine Manifesting System by Christy Whitman.

These two programs have similar structure. They included daily activities for 40-50 days straight, like: daily statement/affirmation (different one each day); meditation for at least 15 minutes; journal daily thoughts; visualization for at least 2 minutes; list 10 things I’m grateful for; VAKS exercise; and list 3 actions I will take today.

MORNING ROUTINES PART 1

MORNING ROUTINES PART 1

So, I love my morning routine. It is constantly evolving. This is one of the main reasons I love going to bed early. Going to bed early ensures a full night of sleep and a lovely long morning.

Getting up at 4:20 AM allows just enough time to get dressed, drink my espresso mixed with protein powder, brush my teeth, let my dogs out and get to the gym before the class starts at 5 AM.

The invigorating group workout is a combination of strength and HIIT movements. The workouts are predetermined and always different. Therefore, I don’t have to think about it or decide what I’m going to to that day. The decision has been made for me. I am able to immerse myself in the workout and the loud music and just be there. My mind is focused on the movement, and I don’t think about anything except what I’m doing in that moment. I feel very present.
