The Microstep That Is Helping Shawn Chacko Sleep Better

The Project Manager, Western Region, shares what helps him calm his racing mind before bed.

I’ve always had trouble falling asleep because my mind races when I get into bed. On average, I get around three to four hours of continuous sleep a night, which has had considerable negative effects on my memory, focus, and energy. But through my work with Thrive, I’ve learned a Microstep that’s helping me: Every night before bed, I ease myself into sleep by bringing my attention to my breathing. In just a few days of practice, I found that focusing on my breathing has helped my body and mind ease into a restful state. And the benefits of sleeping better are enormous. My ability to focus, retain information, and my overall energy throughout the day are improved.
