Quick Tip: Quieting the Evening Mind

I don’t know if I’m the only person who has this happen, but most nights I will go to bed very tired and sleepy, but the minute my head hits the pillow, my brain kicks into high gear thinking about zillions of things I need to get done.

One of the best tips I ever received was to keep a pad of paper and a pen in the drawer of my nightstand, so that when this happens, I can sit up and write down a short (or often long) list of all the things occupying my brain. It seems to get them out of the brain and then it’s much easier to fall asleep.
