Another day has ended, which means that it’s time to postpone all things, say good night to your loved ones and go to bed. It is at this time that people are left alone with themselves, they have the opportunity to think about the most intimate, indulge in dreams. But for some reason, many do not get to think about the good before going to bed. Thoughts about problems, unfinished business, difficult relationships, etc. randomly pop up in my head. Each person has his own sore point.
Morning routine for a productive day
Indeed, not all days are good, giving only positive emotions and pleasant meetings, sometimes there are much more sad events than joyful ones. But we all need to remember that, falling asleep with excitement and discontent, we run the risk of waking up in the same mood. And the morning mood is very important, it can ruin the whole day. It is not for nothing that many psychologists argue that it is in the early morning that you definitely need to find time for meditation, reading interesting, developing literature, physical exercises, and making plans. All experts agree that in the morning you need to set yourself up for a productive day, which will be spent in a great mood, with a smile on your face and peace of mind.
When a person wakes up in a bad mood, there is a high probability that all the things he has planned will remain in the plans, sad thoughts will overshadow all the good things, and relationships with loved ones will not bring joy, and may even deteriorate.
How to correct the situation and learn to control your thoughts, replacing anxiety with calmness?
Relax and get ready for a restful sleep
After you lie down in bed, the first thing to do is to completely relax your whole body. This will help lower your heart rate a bit and cause you to fall asleep faster. It may sound funny, but the sooner a person goes to the kingdom of Morpheus, the less time he will have for bad thoughts. Now many people will say that it is not so easy to relax and tame the swarm of thoughts swirling in your head. There is some truth in this, but you can make a little effort so that the next morning is cheerful and your sleep is sweet.
To feel complete relaxation and peace, it is better to start with the muscles. Concentrate your attention on every part of the body: toes, feet, ankles, rising higher and higher. Try not to think about anything else during these moments, listen to your breathing, following its rhythm.
We try to solve all the day’s affairs
Unresolved and postponed cases are also the cause of not very pleasant, and sometimes too sad thoughts. And most importantly, they do not help to solve them, but only cause irritation, dissatisfaction with oneself and difficulty falling asleep. To cope with such a problem, no matter how trite it sounds, the solution of pressing issues in time will help. The main thing is to understand what exactly you are able to decide or do, and what is better to refuse and forget. Let’s learn to distinguish important tasks from secondary ones.
Psychologists advise writing down all unresolved problems and tasks at the end of the day. And opposite them, write possible solutions, as well as actions that need to be taken. This will help to transfer your thoughts from your head to paper, and calmly ending the day, plunge into a healing sleep. After all, the morning is wiser than the evening, and with a clear, rested head, you can solve all problems much faster.
Heavy blanket or love joys: you choose
An excellent tool that saves from heavy thoughts before going to bed is making love. This not only gives a lot of pleasure and positive emotions, but also provokes the release of endorphins, and also distracts from all kinds of problems. In addition, partners spend a lot of energy and after love joys they quickly fall into a sweet dream.
There is an opinion that under a massive and heavy blanket a person sleeps more calmly and falls asleep faster. Let’s hope this is true. After all, it is much warmer under it, and there are probably fewer unnecessary movements, since it fits more tightly to a person, giving a sense of security. Either way, it’s worth experimenting! And suddenly this is exactly what will help you fall asleep faster, and sleep more peacefully.
Listen to music and fall into a sweet dream
Music also has a calming effect on most people. Relaxing can be called instrumental melodies. Researchers from the University of London and the University of Lincoln conducted research. They showed that listening to music in the evening helps a person quickly move into the sleep phase, in which the body recovers as much as possible.
People listen to music before bed for a variety of reasons. It gives someone a sense of security, someone just enjoys it. During the survey, it turned out that the compositions of Mozart and Bach help most people fall asleep faster. But since each person is individual, everyone likes music differently. Any style of music can set you up for a restful sleep, get rid of unpleasant, obsessive thoughts: pop, rock, etc. It all depends on musical preferences and the body’s reaction to various sounds.
Doing pleasant things for positive emotions
Psychologists believe that you need to tune in to peace and sleep in advance. Try to get rid of the negative emotions accumulated during the day with the help of hobbies and hobbies. It can be sports or dancing, because physical activity effectively relieves fear, anxiety and anger. You can also start to embroider, knit, sew.

For those who can’t draw, you can experiment with painting by numbers or anti-stress coloring books.
Walking in the fresh air also gives positive emotions. Go for a walk with the whole family, communicate, breathe fresh air, enjoy the beauty of nature. And be sure to ventilate the bedroom before going to bed!
