Oh, boy. This may take more than a little melatonin to fix, especially if it’s career related. People often say that finances, relationships, health and work are the biggest worries that keep us awake at night.
I may not be able to fix these for you, but I sure can help you reduce your career worries and get a better night’s sleep.
I find that when I can’t sleep it’s because my subconscious is busy reminding me of things I must do. So I keep pen and paper next to my bed to make notes. I also feel that at three in the morning when I often wake, it’s because I’ve received inspiration. While my brain urges me to jump up and get busy on this new idea, my body rebels. So I write the idea down, make a few notes on related “to-do’s” and soon I’m too tired to write anymore. I’ve released my brain from the worry of trying to remember it.
But if your career is working against you then it’s probably time to change. Not necessarily a new job or new organization, but to change your control and approach. I’m always here to help you with that.
Be mindful of your needs. Make some notes. Quiet your thoughts. Get some rest. Give me a call. Let’s get you back in control of your career. It shouldn’t keep you up all night.
Personal Challenge: What’s keeping you up all night? Isn’t it time for a good night’s sleep? Journal about this.
