Create a Worry Watch Journal

While to-do lists can help keep you organized, they can also end up producing unwanted stress. The open-endedness of uncompleted tasks and goals can keep that stream of worry fueling your mind to run at night when you’re trying to go to sleep.

Keeping a worry watch journal is simple. Just put pen to paper in a notebook for about 10-15 minutes a day – much earlier than bedtime – and write down your worries. Every 2 weeks, go back and look at them to see how many actually panned out. This therapeutic practice helps calm your brain and challenges your worry perceptions, which in turn can change your thoughts to be more positive!
