Good Night Sweet Dreams Take Care #gnsdtc

Night is a special time. A time to recharge (not just) your (phone) batteries. A time to reflect on the day that has gone by. And a time to let go of the past and get ready for the future. If you have read this post before, here’s wishing you a good night’s sleep. If you haven’t or if you wish to remind yourself of what’s important, read on. And then read no more, until it’s dawn. 24 hours every day, that is what we get, and sometimes 24 hours seem woefully inadequate. Borrowing a few hours of time from your sleep time feels like the right thing to do, the smart thing to do. Until it doesn’t. Bad sleep habits become life-long bad habits. Here are some of the things that you should do: If it’s bed time already, do not read this post, go sleep. If it’s bed time and you do read this post, do not read or listen to or watch anything after this post. Lock your phone and close your eyes. Don’t steal time from sleep. If you think you can make do with less sleep, you might be wrong.

Journaling your way to success

Did you know there are 25,480 days in a 70-year lifetime? If you do one productive thing everyday, you will have completed 25,480 productive things in a lifetime. A blog article per day – 25,480 blog articles in a lifetime. A video per day – 25,480 videos. The number seems like a lot until it doesn’t. Especially when you realise that doing one productive activity every day is not an easy task.

Journaling or writing a diary has existed since the 2nd century AD, fans of Marcus Aurelius on YouTube will attest, and perhaps is an even older activity. It can serve many purposes. It can be your imaginary friend witnessing your life, allowing you to understand yourself better. It can be used to improve your sleep and mental health. It can also be a personal organiser, reminding you to focus on what is important.

The Bullet Journal Method is a book that you may find useful which describes a specific method that you can leverage to improve your productivity.

Journaling can be a way to organise your thoughts and focus on the next constructive thing to do. As long as you can cultivate the habit of writing down your plans and then reading them again the next day, journaling may well change your life.

May you have unlimited days and unlimited nights.
