Another Sleepless Night

I barely slept last night. I spent most of the time tossing, turning, adjusting my body to gain some tiny level of comfort. My mind raced with many thoughts. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes I just want to have a clear head. These times are usually when I’m sleeping. When I am sleeping I do not have to worry about life.

As I rubbed my feet together gazing at the blank wall and darkness…I finally drifted off to sleep. I woke up a couple hours later feeling as if I had still stayed up the entire night. I also had a disturbing dream. So, I may as well had stayed up if I was going to be tortured in my sleep with bad dreams lol! When my sleep and sleeping patterns take a hit so does my mood unfortunately!! I have make sure I stick to a sleep schedule. That is part of the problem.

Hopefully I can get more peaceful sleep today and or tonight!

  1. Hopefully you can sleep better.

    I have found that when I cannot sleep, it is useless forcing myself to sleep – because sleep is involuntary and natural. So when I cannot sleep, I do something that I know will make me tired: reading. Try doing something that will make you tired. As always, not stressing so much will be good. I also found that when I go to the gym and run a lot during the day, I sleep like a baby. =)

    1. Exactly!! Sleep is very involuntary mostly!! I can tire myself out sometimes with straight up activity and exercise. There are times I do these during the day and I STILL can’t sleep.Maybe I should try these at night. That’s what my significant other suggests. Idk why I like working out in the morning. It get me energized for the day. I need to be really calm and relaxed so maybe I’ll start doing a lil yoga before bed. I’ve tried it the last couple night and it seems to help

      1. Hmm … do you think that natural remedies would help? There are teas that have herbal ingredients that help induce sleep (my mom drinks Sleepy Time Tea). And I know that melatonin can be purchased over the counter, as well, if you are up to it.

      2. Absolutely!! I have a couple teas that may help. I just have to get up and make them. It’s only a task because sometimes when I can’t sleep….I don’t know that I can’t sleep until it’s too late lol! However, that is a great suggestion. I probably should get in a routine that aids in night time sleep more.

  2. Oh goodness do I feel you! There are a few apps that will help soothe you to sleep not just ocean sounds but a very smooth voice walking you through your day and trying to reassure you that you’re doing everything you can. I don’t remember the name of it but I know there is more than one! Hope you get some good sleep.
