Seven things for you to do before you go to sleep each night.
First, create a to-do list of the things you plan to accomplish tomorrow. List them by priorities based on your goals in the six major areas of your life. . .spiritual, family, financial, physical, mental and social.
Be like Santa. . .make your list. . .check it twice.
Second, journal the great things that happened to you during the day. Regardless of how your day went. . .you have something to rejoice over. If nothing else and I mean nothing else. . .you have the ability to read and hear the words I’m speaking from my notes.
I GUARANTEE … you’ll sleep better at night if you end your day by Praising God.
Third, create a nightly confession about tomorrow being the best day of your life. Something like this.
"Heavenly Father, I thank you <<date>> will be the greatest <<day>> of my life...a day filled with opportunities beyond my imagination and expectation. A day filled with revelatory insight and divine connections. My desire is for you to be glorified in everything I do on <<day, date>>. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen."
Fourth, never go to bed mad or frustrated with your spouse or children. If it’s something that can’t be resolved instantly, write out the problem briefly on a sheet of paper. Pray over it. . .lay it on your night stand. . .and ask God to deal with it while He’s giving you sweet sleep.
Proverbs 3:24 says:
“When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.”
Fifth, clean up. . .pick up. . .so you’ll be ready to get up. Do the dishes and clean up your living area before going to bed. Believe it or not, you’ll be glad you did in the morning. It may seem like a small thing. . .but it gives you a better start on the day when you don’t have a lot of left over chores to face first thing.
Sixth, lay out what you plan to wear tomorrow. This will save you time in the morning, eliminate indecision and ultimately save you some frustration.
Seventh, plan how you will dress your mind tomorrow. Lay out what CDs or teachings you will listen to on your smart phone. Never just settle for what happens to be airing on your commute. . .it needs to be a conscious decision on your part.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
