Sometimes the stillness of midnight, even when you can’t sleep, can be where you receive moments of rest to quiet your mind. Take some time to breathe in and exhale. Settle into the knowledge that tomorrow is a fresh start with renewed energy and the possibility of a clearer perspective.
Allow yourself time to recuperate from an exhausting day; show yourself some compassion and love if you’re working through something that’s weighing you down and stressful. Even if it’s during the last moments before sleep comes, imagine a reset that you can put into action when you wake.
Every so often unhindered resolution will come to us during the dead of night; our subconscious diligently composing order and understanding to what will transport us forward. Encourage everything that restores us, discover ways to sleep comfortably and well; let your burdens rest.
