What is the last thing you think of before falling asleep?
As a firefighter/paramedic, I am away from home for 24 to 48 hours at a time. On the nights I am away, the last thing I think about is my wife and two little girls, praying that God keep them safe while I'm away. What do you think about before falling asleep?
Usually I write a list of things I want to accomplish the next day. Then I usually to do some meditation before going to sleep.
How blessed I am for the roof that covers my head and the bed I get to sleep in. How my cup runneth over with a wonderful husband and also two precious daughters. I remain in AWE that I have soooo very much.
lately, I have been writing as I fall asleep, so it depends on if I finish what i am working on or not. If I do, I think about what people will think about it. If I dont finish, I usually fall asleep while typing on my phone, so my last thought is of what I wrote.
What i want to do the next day and my long term goals I think of about every day (night)
What I am supposed to do for the next day. I usually plan out my schedule before sleeping.
That my neighbours dog won't start barking before 7 oclock and I get at least 6 hours sleep tonight. :-)
I am generally so exhausted I am sleeping very fast. I head to bed thinking about all the things I didn't get done and how to attack these things later. But once I am in bed I am probably sleeping within 2-3 minutes.
My last thoughts before sleep are my family ,my friends and all that I love in the world !!
differnt things on differnt nights ussaly how my day went or if im even gonna be able to fall asleep
Hmmm, the coming day of tomorrow... if I'll be able to see another morning of my life.
Usually the last thing I think before slipping into the REM cycle is "Gosh I'm tired". But before that I try to imagine how cute my little girl will be when she is born.
i cuddle my husband. i cuddle my cat. when they're both asleep, i review the day. then to get my mind relaxed, i recite children's songs over and over in my head, including a chorus of "i love me, i love me" to the tune of 'this old man". that chorus was something i started years ago to repair my self-esteem. now it's maintenance.
I am one of those people who reads in bed, so usually I am thinking about whatever book I am currently reading. Am I going to make it to the end of the chapter before I fall asleep? What is the hero or heroine of the tale going to do next? Is this story compelling enought to read through to the end and suffer going to work exhausted the next day? Nothing of any consequence...
I try to think of what to be grateful for, but more often than not I worry about things. Wish I could stop that! lol
That last sheep that I was counting, that just didn't really fit in with the rest of the group.
I think how grateful I am for finding my soulmate, my daughter, my family and for my life. Sometimes in life we take what we have for granted and I think that every day we should take a moment to reflect what we have and what we have achieved.
I think of my husband and my two boys, and pray to god that he keeps them safe.
i give thanks for another day alive. i may be young but my life has shown me that things can end unexpectedly so i try to give as much gratitude as i can each day.
Before falling asleep every night, I always think of what lies ahead for me the next day.
I think, "I wonder if this hooker charges extra for sleeping over..."
One distasteful joke later, the answer appears. I have three different ways I fall asleep.
The first way stems from just being way too tired. If it's a busy day and I work, go to class, play tennis, and run for exercise, I usually just crash into bed after a nice warm shower and think one single thought before my mind drifts into dreams.
The second way is similar. If I have been binge drinking, I will go straight to bed after the night is over and there will be no time for even just one thought; there's only sleep, or in this case, recovery.
The final way I fall asleep occurs roughly 72% of the time. I lay in bed and think about the next day to come, and what I want to do with it. The only problem is that by the time I decide on something constructive to do the next day, I've fallen asleep, woken up, and forgotten there was even a plan.
But at least I can try again tonight.
please don´t let the morning come too quickly.!!!!!
Sleep time never seems to be enough.
Honestly I have to force my self to sleep every night, so the last thing I trick my mind into believing, is how tired I am, thats what I think about before bed.
I write 3 things in my Happy Diary, that have been truly wonderful during the day. That way I can go to bed remember 3 wonderful things about the day.
That depends on what I have been busy thinking the whole day. Of late, i have been working on something for a friend's shop and that's what has been on my mind before sleep and even when i get up in the morning.
I like to sleep with some music. Wearing earphone and set to my favorite songs or radio is the last thing before falling sleep.
Oh, wow, I probably shouldn't admit this in a public forum but before I fall asleep at night, I usually think about stuff like sex, women to whom I am sexually attacted, good food and what my next hub is going to be about.
I give thanks for the day and i say again and again I am happy, i am healthy, I am a perfect child of God!
as a guest services rep. on a cruise ship the most common thing to think is "another day in paradise".
the last hting i think about befor i go to bed is that i hope tommorrow will be great and what all gonna happen the next day but i think about my bff's and my family and my cute little babby pup princess who is so adorable!
"Did I grade everything I was supposed to?" "Did I upload the (fill in the blank) to my classes about..." "Am I still a little ahead ahead on my doctoral assignments?" "When does the next class start again?" "Did I remember to lay out my kids' clothes for the morning", 'ah yes I did'" "Is the cat meowing because she needs more food?" "What should be the title/subject of my next Hub?" "What was that noise...Is hubby home early?"
Yes, all these thoughts are the last thought because they literally hit all at once. It's a shame, I even multitask when trying to fall asleep!
I just closed my eyes and thought about my boyfriend and the happy days that we spent together.. because now he is far away from me and we hardly manage to meet frequently.
How glad I am NOT to be married. LOL. It's very calming and puts me right to sleep.
After the death of my youngest child, most nights I think of him right before I sleep.
