#25 – You Have to Be Mindful
People who don’t get enough of sleep or who can’t sleep are being caught in a magical circle – they think about the past bad experiences with sleep (thinking about how they don’t sleep well or nothing at all) and they worry about the future (thinking they will die from not sleeping). This kind of a magical circle is extremely bad for you. When you are about to sleep, you mustn’t think about anything. You already know that while you sleep you aren’t able to think. If you just can’t stop the thoughts running in your head, instead of them get mindful.
To get mindful means to concentrate all of your senses to the present moment. In this instance, to get mindful while you are about to sleep would mean for example to feel just how soft your blanket is, to listen to the night birds chirping; mindfulness means to redirect your thoughts to what you feel now, and not to think about the past or the future.
