Changing perspective on life, coming up with new ideas, and making sure I am never in a rut, are just a few of the benefits I take away with me as I get out of bed every Friday morning.
When I sleep upside down, I see my bedroom differently. I stare at a painting I hardly ever have time to stare at, I notice cobwebs in corners I’ve never seen before, and I even experience a different sensation as I get in and out of bed with my opposite leg. Practicing a change of perspective in this very mundane way, means I’m better at changing my perspective in other situations.
If there’s a problem I’m struggling to solve, I step back and look at it with a fresh mindset.
In stressful situations, I seek an alternative attitude and quickly stop feeling stressed. During moments of negativity and despair, I search for a contrasting viewpoint and focus on the positives.
Of course, changing perspective isn’t always the solution, but practicing this change of perspective every week has strengthened my ability to look at things from different angles in all areas of my life.
Gaining new Ideas
I know I’m not the only one who has all their best ideas in the shower. New ideas come to us in the most unexpected moments, and for most, it’s doing mundane tasks rather than brainstorming at our desks. I swear I’m more creative on Fridays.
Sleeping upside down unlocks a part of my brain that isn’t often open; that’s when the ideas flood in. New ideas lead to success and ultimately; happiness. When I look at it this way, sleeping upside down on Thursday nights is very underrated.
