What to Do About Bedtime Anxiety

Many nights at bedtime my mind kicks into high gear with ideas and strategies for how to best do all the things I want to do in life. I feel so inspired that I almost want to skip the whole night and get started right away on the next day.

Other nights I start to feel bombarded with doubts. 

I think we all have a certain time of day that doubts try to creep in; for me it's usually at night. Things that seem like a wonderful challenge during the day can tend to be much scarier at bedtime when we're worn out.

We are always the most vulnerable and discouraged when we are tired.

Start to pay attention to whether there's a certain time of day that doubts usually try to creep into your mind. You should avoid making important decisions at that time of day. You will accomplish so much more in life if you make decisions from a place of peace.

Things generally are much clearer after a good night's sleep. When you're feeling unsure of yourself, choose to set your worries aside and reconsider your life with renewed perspective the next morning.

Each day has fresh grace from heaven and sometimes the grace for the day runs out just before it is time to close your eyes and recharge.

In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety. Psalm4:8
