When you know you have a big day coming up, all sorts of things play through your mind, making it difficult to relax. If you have an important event on the horizon, such as your wedding, an interview or public speaking, you might be feeling a tad nervous the night before.
Often in the run up to the event, you might suffer from interrupted sleep and restless nights. But before big days, it’s important you get enough rest. Yes, we know, that’s easier said than done, but we’ve got some solutions that just might help you to grab some decent shut-eye.
Mindfulness & meditation
If you are nervous about an event, try and refocus your mind the evening before. One way to do this is by using mindfulness techniques. If stressful thoughts about the big day come into your head, notice them, but don’t let them overpower you. Meditating can help focus your mind on something else other than thinking about what you have to do tomorrow.
Make sure you are prepared
Get everything read the night before so you know you won’t have too much to do on the big day. Simply writing things down can help make you feel better. Jot down a to-do list for the next day before you go to bed, and you will feel more at ease.
If you can’t sleep because you are stressing about your big day, then you might want to try some calming techniques. For example, before you go to bed, do some deep breathing, a relaxing yoga session or try listening to relaxation music.
