I know just how you feel. My Fiance justs lays down, and is asleep before his head hits the pillow :-/

What I do to help my mind get turned off is read. I go potty first, then lay down and snuggle in the covers, then read until I can’t keep my eyes open. I also put the alarm clark face down, so I can’t see the time. If I see the time, for some reason, it makes me even more anxious.

@mandi.pitt: lol @ your Fiance πŸ™‚

If you have your laptop in your bedroom, I highly recommend that you try to restrict your use to a different room. I have a mini that I was taking to bed for awhile, and even if I put it aside, it still haunted me. I now keep it in a different room and won’t allow myself to have any computer in the bedroom. It is a hard habit to break, but if you read instead, you should get used to it, and it should help.

Give yourself a curfew for sure. Get into a bed time routine that is more healthy and comforting to you. Night time does strange things to us humans. Everything seems more hopeless, lonely and sad at night. We get cranky more easily, etc. Rest your body, mind and soul. Awake and journal, have some tea or coffee. You’ll see the world anew, and all those numbers you’re crunching, and find solutions more readily. Hang in there.
