Jack Canfield, in his book The Success Principles, discusses the importance of what we do before we go to bed. I thought his point about parents reading to their children was interesting (another good reason to read to your kids!):
“Whatever you read, see, listen to, talk about, and experience during the last 45 minutes of the day has a huge influence on your sleep and your next day. . . . reading good bedtime stories is so important for children–not just to get them to fall asleep, but because the repeated messages, lessons, and morals of the story become part of the fabric of the child’s conscious.”
He discusses how, as adults, we should be mindful of our time right before sleep and try to actively have a positive ending to each day.
This sounds logical to me; let’s all try to be aware of how we are ending our day and see if it has a positive impact on our lives.
