Subconscious is ruining my life!

Hi everyone,

For the past couple weeks like clock I wake up between 4:30 or 5:00 am startled from dreams my subconscious mind is allowing. I cannot go back to sleep and it’s making my work days harder and harder to survive. I can’t concentrate or focus like I need to.

Any idea why this is so strong now and how to relax my subconscious mind??

This would sooo improve the quality of my life!

Yes I do. It’s recent events that I’m working through that keep waking me.

I can relate to this. If it’s possible try going to bed earlier so that you still get enough sleeping hours so that if you can’t fall back asleep it’s okay. Also it seems counterintuitive but if it’s been more than 15 mins get up and try to do something else like read a book for like 15 mins then go back to bed. That can help redirect your brain a little bit and make you tired again

I have had bouts of the same thing. One was when my dad passed away. I woke up at 4:30 every morning. It was like my brain was trying to make sense of something. It eventually improved. My doctor gave me permission to take a Benzo when I woke up so I could relax and go back to sleep. That helped a bit.
