With the launch of my new book, Sleep, Cure Your Insomnia, Improve Your Health and Feel Better Now, I have been contacted by many people asking lots of different questions.
With the subject of my book being about ‘Sleep’, I am really surprised that one of the biggest questions that I am asked does not relate to sleep in the slightest!
Would you believe that the next biggest question that I am asked, aside from how people can improve their sleep, is how I found time to write a book?
I am seen by others as a busy mum who runs a website, writes posts and publishes podcasts, so, I guess it’s not surprising that they wonder how I have found the time to write a book on top of all my other work and home-life.
With this in mind, and wanting to share my own experience with you, I have listed the 3 main things that helped me get that book written!
Whether you want to write a book or start a new and challenging project, and are looking for tips on where to start and how to keep going, then read on.
Let’s be honest. We are all guilty of it. We all have areas in our homes where we have a pile of clutter that we have been promising to clear for quite a long time. Somehow we just never get around to it. We haven't made the time to declutter.
Whether it’s a pile of paperwork that seems to have collected on the kitchen worktop or a bundle of clothes that claims a chair in your bedroom, we all have clutter in our life.
You pretend that you don’t have it. When you have friends over, the piles of paperwork get dumped into another room, and the door gets closed. You hope that your friends never stumble on the hidden mess in your home as you would just die of embarrassment!
You think that you are the only one with a bedroom you can’t walk freely in, or a garage that is stacked to the roof in random boxes. Don’t even mention the attic!
You are certainly not alone. Believe me, your friends hide their clutter away, just like you do!
So if it’s a normal habit to have, then why bother going to the efforts to clear it out?
Why get rid of our stockpiles of stuff that we never or rarely use? Why does it really matter that we have a clear space around us?
Having an overactive mind is not fun. Your mind is spinning with a billion thoughts all at once. You just can’t focus. You can’t relax. You are exhausted. You feel anxious and overwhelmed. You need to find that mental ‘off switch’ and regain control once more, but how?
Wouldn’t it be great if you had an ‘on-off’ switch in your minds that would let you just disconnect from your racing mind long enough to recharge your energy, regain balance, or even to get to sleep?
While, unfortunately, you don’t have a physical button that can do this, there are some things you can do to control your overactive mind. Read on to find out more.
