Happy Thoughts = Better Sleep

If you go to sleep tonight thinking about today’s problems or tomorrow’s rushed schedule (or other stressful thoughts), this can lead to negative emotions. Your brain will use these thoughts and emotions as signals to determine your body’s physiology appropriate for that type of stress. This can include muscle tension, high cortisol levels, heart pounding, negative emotions, etc.
When you go to sleep in the midst of intense emotions and your body’s response to them, they are glued into the sub-conscious mind, having a lasting effect during your night’s sleep.
It’s important to put aside your worries and frustrations before you get into bed. One thing that I find helpful is diffusing a nice, calming essential oil blend. My favorite blend to support peaceful sleep is Young Living’s Stress Away or SleepyIze. Diffusing next to my bed helps bring a smile to my face and relaxation to my body.
