How to De-Stress and Sleep Better: A Simple Technique According to Counseling On Demand

One element of de-stressing is writing things down, using your awareness of your brain and how it works, and saying you know what. I'm not going to stay up all night and try to remember something. I'm going to go to sleep the right way, allowing my brain to relax and giving my thoughts a place to be.
Counseling On Demand is a podcast that's like having your own private therapist, and in this episode, Dr. Fred Riley talks about a simple technique to help you de-stress and sleep better. The mind can attend to four major events at a time, so when we try to go to sleep, our mind is worried about losing those things and can have trouble turning off. According to Dr. Riley, one way to alleviate this stress is by writing things down.
A recent study showed that writing down a list of things to get done the next day can help people fall asleep faster and with more confidence. This technique allows the brain to relax and gives thoughts a place to be. Understanding how the mind works helps us understand something that we can do to de-stress and get a good night's sleep.
