Park Your Thoughts
Do you ever have problems getting off to sleep, or do you ever get up for the loo and have difficulty getting back to sleep again? An effective technique that may help is to ‘park’ your unfinished business before you go to bed. To do this simply take a piece of paper and write down all the things that are occupying your mind before you go to bed. Some people also find it helpful to list all the things they have to do the following day. Once you have finished, ‘park’ the list in another room and if you need to, refer to it again in the morning. The effect of this exercise is to clear your unconscious mind to allow you to fully rest your body and your mind.
