September Productivity Prompt Day 10: Get an Early Night

How often do you feel so exhausted that you feel you could fall asleep at any moment of the day?

How often do you lie in bed in the evening and start at the ceiling with your mind whirring and get angry that you can’t fall asleep?

We’ve all been there – sleep is so essential to good mental health but is so often in short supply. What could we all do this evening to help us get to sleep a little earlier?

Let’s think of some ways to help. Think of the last time you fell asleep really quickly – what had you done that day? Were you exhausted from doing some exercise or a really busy day at work? Had you spent the evening relaxing with friends? Had you put your phone down a couple of hours before bedtime?

We all know what’s meant to work to help us to sleep, but it’s a different story when it actually comes to remembering to put your phone down and walk up the stairs a little earlier. Work out what helps you and try to do at least one of those things before bedtime tonight and see what difference it makes to your ability to get to sleep. If it works, try it again tomorrow and then the next day. Don’t commit to doing the same thing every night for a week, because that may be too much of a challenge – take it one day at a time.

For those of you who’ve been inspired to get an early night, either now or in the past, how did it go? How do you feel now that you’ve done it? Add your comments below.
