I told my co-worker once I don’t do yoga because I can’t be left alone with my thoughts for that long.
Then I remembered I go to sleep every night.
My anxiety has been bugging me lately and that causes my mind to race at night. Not sure if I’m just unnecessarily worrying about things. I try my best to clear my mind, but one thing can lead to another.
There are some nights when I’m tired but dread going to sleep because of the time before I fall asleep. I’ve been taking melatonin for years, which helps I guess, but sometimes I think my mind overrides that.
I normally read before bed, but I’m that person who uses her phone right before bed. The whole “blue light” thing hasn’t really bothered me, and most of the time before I go to sleep is when I write some of my story in the Google Docs app.
So in order to calm my anxiety, I try to think of random things, like if it’s possible to make a sustainable living by watching reruns of ER. I actually came up with the main plot line of my next fiction story last week while I was half asleep.
Does anyone have any hints or tips? Or any random things I can think about at night?
