I couldn’t sleep last night my mind was like a ongoing TV show, one scene after another.
This is something that happens regularly, shutting off completely has never been easy for me, why i don’t know.
I have read posts and online sites about mediating, yoga, light a candle and do some breathing exercises. I’m not going to say ‘their rubbish stuff like that doesn’t work’, because from what I’ve seen it does work for some people.
However for me I’ve tried and tried yet it never works. I can’t meditate, i lasted two days and gave up, yoga same don’t have the patience.
That’s probably one of my main problems PATIENCE.
I guess you need to be able to take your time to do something, but for me when it comes to turning off, patience to do yoga isn’t one of them. So everyone has to find their own way of escape.
Mine is MUSIC.
Don’t worry I’m not going to list all my amazing song i listen to because I’m not a music head , i don’t always remember all the artist and all their songs.
But… when my head is going round and round and doesn’t know when to shut up and go to sleep, all I have to do is turn on my Spotify put my headphones on and turn up the volume and i can just be.
Music is my escape, which is the only reason i signed up to pay monthly for Spotify which isn’t something i like to do. Monthly subscriptions just isn’t my thing, not a fan of them but i did it for something that helps me.
Guess the point of this post is, to help people realize you can’t do something everyone does for the same results, just because something works for one person doesn’t mean it will work for you.
So if your mind is driving you crazy and doesn’t know when to stop find what makes it stop… experiment, because from what iv learned from my own experience, theirs something out there for everyone.
You just have to find YOURS.
