On Lacking Sleep

>> Tuesday, June 17, 2008

These past few weeks I have difficulty sleeping. Dunno why.. Probably I think a lot about things right after lying on the bed. I would lie awake for 1.5 to 2hrs and what usually keeps me company is my good old NDS. Mon, on the other hand, can start snoring soon after he gives me his usual good night kiss :p

I know that I have to stop thinking about my concerns before sleeping. It's really dragging and the concerns are often translated in my dreams. And once I wake up, it is the first thing that comes into my mind. Stressful and frustrating!

Since I have acknowledge this, I am now trying to find ways to just relax and be worry-free before sleeping. This has allowed me to have one step forward in achieving my goal...

Free from frustration

You choose your frustrations. And you can just as easily choose to be free of frustration.
What is it that makes you frustrated? What kinds of things bring on so much frustration that you can't get anything accomplished?

Actually, nothing makes you frustrated. Frustration is just the way you respond to certain situations.

Frustration is useful when you first feel it, because it calls your attention to the conflict between your inner values and your outer situation. But once it has your attention, frustration has done its job, and it is then time to let it go.

As soon as you feel frustration, ask yourself what that frustration is attempting to tell you, and listen carefully to the answer. Once you truly get the message, the frustration has done its job and it falls naturally and easily away.

By immediately understanding and appreciating what your frustration has to say, you can quickly get beyond it. Then, with a new sense of purpose and positive direction, you'll be even more effective than before.
