Insomnia, here you are again.
Mental checklists happens all the time just right before or when I’m about to sleep. Thinking through things I’m grateful for and re-aligning the day ahead according to priority. When the self wandering and breaking down of goals and ideas doesn’t stop, the need to forcefully get myself out from being glued on my bed, turn the lights back on and then I shall reunite together with my mini journal and pen.
Are these lists really important? Yes.
Most of the time these thought bubbles can’t wait until tomorrow and must be written down to chunk every bit to how to’s, what to and sort them on a time line.
Writing alone in a piece of paper or mini notepads often finds me jotting down more notes, transferring them on my day- to-day planner and synchronizing it all to my blackberry and iPad calendar gives me the peace of mind and more organization.
Couldn’t help but wonder when did this entire “to do lists before I sleep” happened? Is this a sign of aging? Perhaps.
These to do lists aren’t the only ones that keeps me awake longer; budget planning comes in lengthy as I try to reorganize and reinstate which are considered bills and other things.
If you’re feeling anxious, lost or cluttered by your thoughts as you try to head deep to laland, I suggest you go ahead and give yourself time to write it all down and give yourself some order. It may not pay the bills immediately or get you to finish tasks but it sure helps you be aware of what are duly due and manage your day with a game plan.
Now that I have shared my sentiments and can hear the lovely chirping of the birds as I feel the morning dew, our hen turning out to be a morning rooster greeting the daylight; I may finally meet sleep even though its already 6, after writing down my lists, including this.
Do you also write lists or undergo a natural mental checklist right before you sleep?
