It’s now 12.15AM and you’re lying in bed wide awake with your mind racing as fast as Lightning McQueen did in his beloved Piston Cup (you can see I have a toddler).⠀
You try not to look at the clock but you can’t help it.⠀
Half an hour later, you get up from your bed because you know how this will go – if you stay there, you’ll still be wide awake and you’ll just feel like you’ve wasted your time.⠀
You just can’t seem to find peace.⠀
What’s the solution?⠀
You need to learn how to declutter the mind. Slow it down. Make it focus.⠀
Yeah yeah, easy to say but almost impossible to do.⠀
I know exactly what you mean since I can’t even count how many times I’ve gotten out of bed at around midnight because I couldn’t sleep. Some of those times, I end up making myself a hot cocoa with maybe a dram of whisky.⠀
But why don’t we take a step back from an alcohol-based solution and see if we can find peace some other way – perhaps by learning how to declutter the mind instead of numbing it.⠀
Decluttering the mind doesn’t seem very easy, at least at first. Our minds are usually full of stress, anxiety, dark thoughts and worries. They also tend to go on a loop. On and on it goes without stopping – like a roller coaster sans the breaks. And that’s the reason why it can be very hard to let go of things and relax.⠀
Reminder: There’s no one right way of doing this but I encourage you to try the tips I’ve included in this post. I’m an insomniac with a tendency to get anxious so believe me when I say that I know how it feels. The tips in this post are what help me when the worst of it strikes. Perhaps they’ll help you too.⠀

You heard it here first: Grand Ave. jewelry is plated with 2 layers of 14k gold, using 2 unique plating processes. This makes our jewelry last much longer than traditional gold plated jewelry. Pinkie promise. 💫
