Trouble Sleeping

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hey guys. I made an appointment for therapy. They said they would call me back, so..fingers crossed! Where I'm at right now, it's 3:23 AM and I can't sleep.. I've been trying to sleep for almost 2 hour's now. Every time I try to close my eyes & just relax, my heart starts beating fast, I get a slight lump in my throat feeling, and my head/neck feels tingly. I also, get a panicky feeling. It's driving me crazy. This always happens when I need to be up at a certain hour.

    Hi there Kayla

    I have a lot of trouble sleeping. I am going to share some things I do to try and relax my mind but we are all different so it might not be as helpful to you. They sound boring but boring can make your more tired.

    1) I love to plan. In my head, I like to plan out the next morning (also a technique for keping your mind away from intrusive thoughts).

    2) I imagine myself in my dream life... what would I be wearing, thinking and what job would I be doing. Think of each detail of this person and create their life. It is like an escape from your anxity mind/life smile

    You have to use your imagination but it can help. I often lay in bed thinking about dying or convincing myself I am ill.

    This is the time you pull up a meditation video on breathing or healing. Tons of calm apps as well.
