You can always count on Matthew McConaughey to ease the mind.

It’s no secret that Mr. Alright Alright Alright himself is not only one of the most famed actors in the world, but he’s also a pretty damn good philosopher.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just checkout his Green Lights memoir he released back in 2020, and it’ll hit you like a freight train.

It’s pretty cool to see the man constantly set a little bit of time out of his busy schedule to share some info to his fans, whether it’s some cool stories from his life, what his favorite things to do are, and even sharing a few life hacks along the way.

And here’s the latest example.

If you’re an adult, you’ve more than likely stressed about a busy schedule coming up the following day, so much to the point where you have a hard time sleeping at night, as the wheels are turning in your brain 100 mph.

With that being said, McConaughey has one simple fix for that…

Just write it all down in a journal.

He shares:

“The night before, just write your to-do list down. Make it long.

Put fun stuff on there too, like have my first cup of coffee, hug my wife, call a friend, wear my favorite t-shirt.

Put fun, easy stuff on there, because what’s fun, the more stuff you get to cross off the next day. Did it!”

So, if you’re ever having a hard time trying to remember all of the stuff you have to do the next day, simply write it down.
