Notepad By Your Bedside

I was about to head up for the night and remembered I needed to get a fresh notepad to put on my night table. Since day-to-day life can be nonstop hustle and bustle it seems the only time to unwind is when relaxing before bed. Many of us either watch television or read a book to clear our minds before sleeping. I know many people need some quiet time before shutting off their lights...I know I do! When the house gets quiet that seems to be the time the brain starts getting creative juices flowing with ideas. It is also a time when things you were suppose to do or have to do pop into your head (I know that is what happens to me). Instead of trying to remember what just popped into your head until morning, try writing it down on a notepad next to your bed.

This idea also works great for children. It will relieve anxiety for them when they feel thay have to remember things for school the next day or when they want to tell parents or friends something. Just have your child keep a notepad next to their beds. It is also great because your children will not have to come down the hall every ten minutes to tell you something. I tell my children I will read the pad when I tuck them in late at night (after they fall asleep) or I will read the pad in the morning. I feel it makes the kids less anxious knowing that they will be heard...words are very powerful and you don't want to lose a great thought just because you thought you could remember it till morning...why take the chance!
