'Most people just cycle through their to-do lists in their heads, and so we wanted to explore whether the act of writing them down could counteract night-time difficulties with falling asleep'.
'The alternative hypothesis is that writing a to-do list will "offload" those thoughts and reduce worry'.
There are just two schools of thought about that particular."1 is the fact that now talking about the future could lead to increased stress about unfinished activities and wait for sleep, while sourcing about finished activities should perhaps not trigger stress."The alternative hypothesis is that composing a to-do record will "offload" these thoughts and cut back stress" Some 51 percentage of Brits have trouble dropping off to sleep, with women three times more likely to undergo from the findings are printed in the Journal of Experimental Psych". And in fact, they did find that people who wrote longer lists of completed tasks took longer to fall asleep, compared to those who wrote shorter ones.

"Measures of personality, anxiety and depression might moderate the effects of writing on falling asleep, and that could be explored in an investigation with a larger sample", he said.
