Making lists in our journals when we can’t sleep is a good mental exercise that will get our minds off our insomnia and hopefully will get us sleepy again.
Here is a listing exercise to try:
Make a list of all movies of a certain genre (ex: all horror movies, all chick flick movies, classics, thrillers etc.) that you can think of
Make a list of your all time favorite movies
Make a list of the worst movies you have ever seen
Make a list of movies that make you cry
Make a list of movies that make you laugh
Make a list of every Oscar winning film that you can think of
