5 Things To Tell Yourself Before Bed

What To Tell Yourself Before Bed

2015/01/img_4760.jpg
“Why is it when we always lie down for bed, we’re suddenly flooded with negative thoughts, worst-case scenarios and scads of mental to-do lists?”

“Getting the recommended amount of Zzs should be something we strive for, but our brains have a way of making those extra hours a little elusive. Ruminating over your worries as your head hits the pillow can put you on the fast track to a restless night. So, perhaps, the solution for drifting off to dreamland lies in what we tell ourselves before we crawl under the sheets.”

“If you’re looking for a little calm before shutting those eyes, try these five sleep mantras!”

“I’m thankful for…”

“What can’t gratitude do? Practicing thankfulness can increase our happiness levels, boost our immune systems and strengthen our relationships — and, yes, it can also help us sleep better. Before you go to bed, reflect on what you’re thankful for (or, better yet, write it down). You may sleep in the dark, but you’ll be looking at the bright side.”

Let it Be

“Have you ever heard of the saying “never go to bed angry”? Research shows reflecting on negative emotions after we crawl into bed makes it less likely that we’ll get adequate rest, according to a 2012 study.”

“That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to resolve all conflicts before going to sleep (in fact, as Women’s Health reported earlier this year, it may work in your benefit to wait until the morning), you should clear your mind of anxieties when you shut those eyes. Whether the conflict requires an apology, a pause or just some time to talk it out, make sure you have peace of mind before you hit the pillow.”

I am Strong”
“Or — if you prefer another adjective — kind, brave and loved all work, too. The point is to reflect on your accomplishments, strengths and characteristics. A 2014 study suggests that self-acceptance is crucial to a happier life, yet we rarely practice it. We could all use a little boost — and aren’t these positive thoughts infinitely nicer to think about than the mishap we had at work that day?

How Can I Make This Better?”
“If you’re stuck in a creative rut, try asking yourself the specific question you’ve been trying to solve right as you go to bed. According to best-selling author Steven Kotler, your solution might lie in your sleeping brain through lucid dreaming. “It is pretty easy to ask the intrinsic system a question … Out loud or silently, doesn’t seem to matter,” he writes in a Psychology Today post on hacking creativity. You may just land on that “aha!” moment you’ve been consciously striving for.”

“I Will Find Calm
“If you have been tossing and turning for a while, you may find solace in focusing on one calming phrase, according to wellness expert Deepak Chopra, M.D. Repeat the mantra silently to yourself. If you find yourself becoming distracted, gently return your thoughts to just the repetition of that phrase. Check out these suggestions for more calming mantras to try.”

Having him finish on my face.

“I see it in videos and imagine it’d be really hot, but I’m too reserved to request it and my boyfriend isn’t the type to ask if he can do something like that.”

Rape fantasy.

“I would never tell my boyfriend this because it’s so uncomfortable, but sometimes when I’m touching myself I think about him taking me by force. Like if I said no and he kept going any way because he’s so confident that I want him and find him sexy. It would be really fun to role play, but I couldn’t handle my embarrassment if he thought I was a freak for getting off on what is for many a very tragic thing.”

Having a threesome with another woman, but having all the attention on me.

“I feel like if I told my boyfriend that we should have a threesome…
