The Warm Milk Journal

A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctors’s book-an Irish Proverb


Let’s not take ourselves so seriously.

Let us laugh! Even if we don’t feel like it at first. Laughter is healing. Laughter is joyful. Laughter is a good detox for the spirit and soul which will help us have a good night’s sleep…

If you are awake in the middle of the night with your journal, do this:

1. Write down something that puts  a smile on your face and touches your funny bone (a memory of some kind, a joke, something funny you saw in a movie recently, etc.

2.Put your journal down- make yourself laugh for a whole minute (or longer!). Now pick your journal back up and write down anything that comes out.

3. Think of a time when you were very serious and worried about something- and then consider the outcome (chances are nothing came of it). 99% of what we worry about does not happen. Think about how silly we human beings can be at times with all of our fret and worry… and then just laugh!
