How to sleep better with nightly affirmations. Unless you have kids, then you never sleep.
I’m just kidding. Sort of. If you have kids then you already know, but mine are two and one right now and the struggle is real. If one doesn’t need me, the other does. Which can make it a difficult balance not only with family time, but with work and finding quiet time for myself too.
So sometimes when I’m laying my head on my pillow at night and conjuring up all of the things that I didn’t do that day, or beating myself up for losing my cool, I say a few things that help quiet the noise. I’m fairly open about my struggles with anxiety and depression, which is why I became an advocate for mental health and wellbeing. It is my hope that this article helps you if you are someone that struggles as well.
How to sleep better by eliminating guilt.
Guilt is one thing that can prevent me from resting easy. The worry that I was too short-tempered with my husband or my children. That I wasn’t proactive enough at work.
