HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsHow to sleep without overthinking?
Roy Murray asked 2 months ago

I have a lot of trouble falling asleep because I overthink things. I'll replay events from the day in my head or worry about things that might happen in the future. This makes it really hard for me to relax and get to sleep, and I often end up lying awake for hours.

Sleeping is important and I understand how difficult it can be to fall asleep when you're overthinking things. What I can suggest is you try to find a way to relax before bed. This can be reading a book, taking a bath, or listening to calm music. Once you're in bed, try focusing on your breathing and clear your mind of any thoughts. It may take some practice, but eventually, you should be able to fall asleep.
