Affirmations for sleep: Sleep isn't always easy, for many of us when we turn off the light the sandman is the last person to visit. There are many reasons for this; We find when we prepare to sleep our mind is suddenly more active than it's been all day! Thoughts, memories, worries bombard us from nowhere.
For some, life events and difficulties can consume us with worry and anxiety. Relationships, health, issues with work and money, all creep into our night-time relaxation and keeps sleep away. For some our busy lives just take over, we work hard and want to make the most of our evening, resulting in us staying up, eating too late, drinking to socialise or unwind, some even answering work emails late into the night.
Whatever the reason, affirmations for sleep can help by reintroducing the body and mind to the natural cycles and ease of sleep.
Affirmations are like a daily dose of what’s good for you. A fresh, organic, nutritious shake for our mind made up of positive specific thoughts and focussed attention on what we want and desire. We all know that good quality food is a must for our bodies if we want them to function at their best, but I bet even those who take great care with our diets regularly fill our minds with unhealthy negative thoughts and negative self-talk - the food equivalent of disgusting fat drenched junk food.
Negative thoughts can poison our emotions and behaviour, meaning niether work as best they should.Negative thoughts limit our potential, keeping us stuck somewhere we'd rather not be and negative self-talk tells us lies about ourselves. Affirmations are like a daily dose of what’s good for you. A fresh, organic, nutritious shake for our mind made up of positive specific thoughts and focussed attention on what we want and desire.
