New Day Fresh Start

New Day Fresh Start

At Somniloquy with L&C, we consistently talk about how to get the best sleep. We focus on the things you need to do before going to bed. Have you ever noticed that good nights start with good days? That’s right. The best way to have great sleep at night is by starting with a great day. How can you attack your day and, in turn, make your night better?

  • New days mean fresh starts - Just as the title of this blog implies, each new day does bring a fresh start. Don’t dwell on what happened yesterday or in the past. Focus on today and what new and wonderful things await you. The power of positive thinking can truly be a great tool.
  • Don’t worry, be happy - Bobby McFerrin taught us this in 1988, and he may have been on to something. Understandably, at times this is easier said than done. But if you try to keep your worries at bay, and focus on being happy, you can achieve a sense of well-being.
  • Attack the undesirable - This could be your largest project, your most difficult task, or whatever is on your agenda that seems the most arduous. By attacking your least desirable task first, this gets it out of the way and gives you more time during your day for things you look forward to working on. It may also give you a sense of accomplishment.
  • Take time for you - No matter how busy you get throughout the day, remember to refresh your batteries. Take time to just breathe, to meditate, or to take a short walk. Basically, do something that will help you feel better. If you stress all day long without taking some time to focus on yourself, you may find this stress continues into the evening. Even short breaks throughout the day can be beneficial.
  • Make it happen - Remember, you are the person with the most control over your day and your feelings. Do not simply try to get things done. Do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals.

What happens if you don’t finish all projects or reach all goals? Do not beat yourself up over it. Tomorrow is another day. If you can achieve and maintain this mentality, you should find that your good days translate into good nights more often than not.

What do you do during the day to ensure you have a good night?

When you walk outside, you might be thinking that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” could easily have been written by Frank Loesser today.
