I still battle with anxiety, although, thanks to the sleeping tablets, it no longer keeps me up at night. I need to learn how to deal with these anxious thoughts. Typically, I either rehash the day before and/or rehearse tomorrow.
I always imagine a catastrophic consequence over a task left undone. Or I rehearse the worst case scenario over some chore in the morrow. Always negative thoughts. Its pretty exhausting. Nail biting stuff.
The thing is, I know I should reject the thought as inconsequential and focus on the reality of the moment. But this bedtime dance has become a bad habit that appears hard to break. I can’t rely on sleeping tablets forever. I must break the cycle.
