I know you’ve been there. You toss and turn as your mind spins non-stop. You wish the thought away so you can get some sleep, but it won’t go away.
Here’s the secret to getting that thought out of your head so you can fall sleep easily.
Get out of bed and write it down.
Use a notebook and pen by your bed.
Go to your desk, turn on your computer and write it out, all of it.
Not only will this be some of your best content, once it’s off the hamster wheel inside your mind and written on the page in front of you, you’ll sleep like the dead.
When you fight with your inspiration, you fight your authentic self, and that never ends well, does it?So the next time you can't sleep because the Idea Gerbil is running on the hamster wheel and he refuses to stop, do what I do. Get out of bed and write it down. Click To Tweet
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to trust the process.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.“
These raw, unfiltered ideas keep you awake because they simply MUST GET OUT.
Yes, they may cost an hour or two of sleep, but five hours of deep sleep is better than eight hours of tossing and turning, right?
