Who wakes up and does not feel completely rested? And then you mutter to yourself all day "Ugh, I'm so tired" or let everyone know that you "Didn't sleep so well last night"?
Though this may seem harmless, repeating phrases of being tired and not feeling like you got a good enough sleep can actually make you feel, you guessed it, tired. While on the other hand, no matter the type of sleep you got the night before, if you tell yourself that you got good rest and are energised for a productive day, the power of your mind will help you to achieve your goals, even if you felt like you could have gotten more sleep. These are all affirmations, for every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation, and affirmations are actually part of the language of the brain.
What you tell yourself as conversation eventually, affects the subconscious mind, which accepts what you say as real and makes it happen. Words and thoughts that are repeated often get stronger by the repetitions, sinking deeper into the subconscious mind.
When it comes to feeling good and feeling rested, repeating that you are tired will do just that. When you wake up, it is important to be positive about your quality of sleep which will kick start a healthy cycle. The more you are positive about your sleep, the better your rest and energy levels will be. Try this for the next few days and see how you feel. This is especially important now with the summer heat and the intense global energies surrounding us.
Here are some positive sleep related affirmations before bed:
I release today.
My dreams are pleasant.
I now enter a place of deep and restful sleep.
I get up as soon as my alarm clock goes off feeling fresh and alert.

Sleep is a natural process that I enjoy every night. I close my eyes and awake the next morning refreshed and revitalised.
