I haven’t been able to sleep very well this week. Every time Preston announced he was going to bed, I’d go too. But five minutes later he’d be snoring and I’d be laying there wondering why I wasn’t sleeping too. And, also wondering how the hell he was able to fall asleep so damn fast in the first place.
Every night I’d roll out of bed and get on Pinterest. Or Facebook. Scrolling and clicking until I wasn’t thinking about anything at all. An hour later I’d fall into bed exhausted, but lie there awake anyway, wondering why I couldn’t sleep.
“Our minds turn into gigantic magnifying glasses that make all our fears 100 percent bigger when we’re lying there as a captive audience at 3 a.m., in bed, with nothing to distract us. Unless you’re going to get out of bed right then and there and take some sort of action, don’t waste your precious time worrying about your problems. Every time you do this, it’s never as bad the next morning when you get up. You know this and yet…” Excerpt from Jen Sincero’s book, “You are a badass: How to stop doubting yourself and start living life“
Oh yeah, that’s why. I’m gonna totally stop doing that. Especially tonight, because I’m totally tired.
