Sleep is important and needed to help us get through the day. We should sleep for about eight hours at night. If you are a child you would need a bit more sleep. This is how sleep is supposed to work. I, however, am feeling abnormal. I can’t sleep. I haven’t been able to sleep for a long time and it’s frustrating.
People keep giving me advice on how I should get myself to sleep. Frankly, the advice can be overwhelming. I am trying to find the best method for me. There should be no reason I can’t sleep. No one is coming to get me and I have nothing to be stressed out about. So what’s my problem?
Well, I think too much. My mind runs sixty miles per hour. I think about a ton of things that are relevant to my life or the next day or the next week and so on and so on. It’s hard for me to relax and focus on nothing. My mind is hardly ever blank or empty. I constantly have something running through it.
My mom wants me to sleep. I know her concerns are something to consider. I sleep all day and am up all night. I’m like a vampire. But vampires are supposed to be up at night, not humans. I know I will fall asleep, but I want quality rest and not to wake up tired which I do a lot. I’m going to try some sleep apps and hope they work out otherwise I might need to see a doctor to knock myself out.
