Sometimes during a real estate transaction, you may find yourself lying awake at night thinking the following thoughts...
Are the sellers going to accept my offer?
Are these buyers going to love my home as much as I do?
Did I make the right decision about....
What am I going to do about....
And then you look at the clock, and you realize you have to get up for work in 4 hours, then 3 hours, 2 hours....
My goal is to educate you and guide you throughout the real estate transaction. You are going to have questions. If you have questions, and its late at night, I encourage you to write them down on a piece of paper. I find that if you type your questions into a phone or tablet, then the light of the device actually keeps you more awake. Also, you may get distracted by other apps on your phone that are mentally engaging.
Here are Some Suggestions on How to Go to Sleep Faster:
- At night, allow the room temperature to be between 60 degrees - 75 degrees. If you are concerned about budget, maybe consider raising the temperature during the day when you are not at home. But also, a smart programmable thermostat can help facilitate the temperature.
- Get on a schedule. Some careers and lifestyles allow for a more consistent schedule, I completely understand that. But, if you can try to go to bed at the same time every night, this helps your body and mind get used to the fact that bedtime is at _:___PM
- Invest in GOOD blackout curtains. When my husband and I purchased our home, the previous owner had custom blackout curtains made for the master bedroom. I absolutely LOVE those curtains (even though they are a color that doesn't match my decor). Since we moved into this home, I notice I sleep so much better with the blackout curtains.
- Exercise during the day. I notice that when I work out early in the morning, I find that I am exhausted by the end of the day.
- Turn off all electronics. I highly recommend the "Do Not Disturb" mode on the cellphone. This allows me to sleep without notifications all night long.
Now that you have read this article, you should have no problem going straight to sleep! You're welcome.
If it is nighttime, then go to sleep! Have a good night, and don't let the bed bugs bite.
