Getting Ready For Bed: How Do You Do It?
You know those nights when you’re trying to go to sleep but your brains all, “hey, sleeping is cool but I want to fret, and ruminate, and hypothesize, and make to do lists, and imagine new projects, and think of everything ever”? Yeah. Those nights are annoying.
When you struggle with anxiety, those nights can occur pretty regularly. It can be really hard to shut the voice inside your head up, and relax.
There are lots of really nice tips online on how to get ready for bed, and slow your mind down so you can fall asleep.
Things like, drinking camomile tea, turning off the computer an hour before you try to sleep, turning down the lights, not eating late at night, reading etc.
Sometimes these things can help, sometimes they don’t, but it’s always nice to have some resources and options to turn to.
I thought it would be interesting to open up the discussion on this topic.
