31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 13

Day 13 of 31 Days of Wellbeing

For this day, I am going to choose an activity which I personally desperately need right now…

There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep. Homer

I normally force myself to stay awake until my ‘usual bedtime’, but sometimes, it pays off to ignore the routine and get some extra zzz’s. It is a horrible feeling when you are so tired you cannot think straight. It often leads to more stress, anxiety and depression as well.

Tonight, take yourself off to bed early. Ideally, go to bed one hour before you normally would. If it feels too early to sleep and you’re not that tired, still go to bed but read a book, write, listen to music or draw instead (avoid TVs and phones!). You will still benefit from the relaxation and comfort of going to bed earlier.

With any luck, you will wake up more refreshed and ready to face whatever tomorrow brings.
