"I use the Pensieve. One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one's mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one's leisure. It becomes easier to spot patterns and links, you understand, when they are in this form."
—Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts wizarding school
A client asked this: "I often wake up in the early morning from a dream about work and can't go back to sleep because I start thinking of what I need to do for work and either send emails as I think of it or write myself reminder emails."
This is a common scenario. Even if you're not waking up due to work related thoughts, maybe it's something else on your mind. Oh, maybe something like how you can get pregnant.
My best advice for this situation is to make it a habit to journal or write down your thoughts BEFORE you go to bed. Writing it down gives your brain an outlet for all the excess activity and worry.
Like how Dumbdledore uses the Pensieve.
What usually helps most is not writing about what you accomplished during the day, but writing out your to-do list for tomorrow. When you have something that’s unfinished, it’s on your mind more than any task you have completed.
End with a call to your intuition to show you your next steps on your fertility journey.
In fact, “Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious.” — Thomas Edison
While you’re sleeping, your subconscious mind will get to work figuring it out for you.
If you think you're too busy to spend a few minutes to journal, think about how much time is lost to tossing and turning and checking your clock constantly to see if it's time to wake up.
That sleep is critical for your body to repair itself so that you can be at your fertile best. Without restful sleep, your hormonal regulation is disrupted and your body can't detox from the waste that it generates from its normal biochemical processes.
Quality sleep is one of the foundational elements to improving fertility naturally.
