How do I feel better?

ResaLux profile image

I am so tired all the time, it doesn't matter how much I sleep. I am exhausted all day then when I finally go to bed at night, I can't fall asleep! I lay there just trying to quiet my mind while it's racing about all the things I am stressing about. It's not even big stuff I am stressing about, it's just random stuff but I stress about it and then about all the ways things could go wrong. Why can't I just be happy? I feel so trapped in my own mind

Hi ResaLux,

Have you tried an ambient sound machine? They even have Apps with different sounds for sleep. It is good for meditation, which can help to calm the mind.

Maybe you need to go do something physical on a regular basis. If you exercise your body will begin to create more energy. You burn that energy off and you sleep.

Thank you for the suggestion. It's hard to get motivated to excersise when you feel so bad but over the last week and a half, I have been really trying to get to the gym. It does seem to help, it's just hard to get there

Just go, don't listen to any excuses.

Thank you. I did go, it did help
