As a parent, it can feel impossible to get the quality of sleep you need. Whether you’re running around with toddlers or up all night with a newborn, finding the time to relax is difficult. However, there are several sleep hacks for parents that can help you achieve the quality of sleep you deserve.
One of these hacks is practicing gratitude. Grateful thinking has many benefits, including better sleep. If you are someone who lies awake at night going over your laundry list of to-dos the next day, consider practicing gratitude before you go to bed. One great way to do this is by keeping a gratitude journal. One study found that those who kept a gratitude journal slept an average of 30 mins longer and had more energy the next day.
Gratitude journals are an amazing way to reflect on your day and set goals for tomorrow. You can also involve your kids in the process and make it a family activity! To help, our friends at Casper created a gratitude journal printable + fun stickers to go along with it.
Just print them out and make it a part of your nightly routine! You and the kids will be dozing off to dreamland in no time.
