“A well-spent day brings happy sleep.”
~ Leonarda Da Vinci
I wish someone had shared Da Vinci’s quote with me years ago. I would be much more rested if I had known what I know now…that believing I have spent my day well ensures that I will be able to fall asleep quickly and sleep soundly.
This is the #1 way to sleep like a baby again.
Does it sound too easy?
I understand. And, yet, it is the truth.
In Chapter 6 of my best-selling book, Chi-To-Be! Achieving Your Ultimate B-All, I share about the ‘Power of Love’ and the importance of practicing the Appreciation Perspective Experience every night while in the process of falling asleep.
I call this process ‘Going A.P.E’.
And, it involves doing the exact opposite of what most people to do when they go to sleep.
I find that most people get into bed and then relive their day in their mind with the focus being on everything that they did not accomplish or those aspects of their day which did not go the way they wanted it to go.
They attempt to fall asleep while dwelling on a list of everything they feel they must do the next day or what they wish they could go back and do over again. Their mind continues to keep working…even if their body falls asleep…which is why they wake up feeling drowsy, heavy, and as if they did not get a good night’s sleep.
In contrast, when someone chooses to Go A.P.E. as they are falling asleep, they focus their mind on listing everything they accomplished during the day and what they feel they did ‘right.’
Their mind begins to relax and they feel a sense of accomplishment. They feel appreciated. They feel powerful. And, when the mind relaxes, the body is able to relax and sleep comes easily and deeply.
Don’t take my word for it. Instead, I invite you to practice this Energy Surge as you start to fall asleep tonight.
Step #1: Go to bed before you feel exhausted.
Step #2: Close your eyes and start by saying, “I acknowledge myself for (fill in the blank).”
Step #3: Each time you state a self-acknowledgment, notice the sensations in your body.
Step #4: In the morning, notice how you feel as you awaken.
I expect you will be pleasantly uplifted.
