What’s Happening When Your Mind is Racing
A racing mind is the stress that comes with you not being able to stop thinking.
You don’t have the opportunity to fall asleep because you can’t let go of those thoughts long enough to drift. You’re mind is swirling around thought of past, future, and present.
In general when you’ve got a racing mind at night, your thoughts fall into 3 categories:
What Should I have Done Today
You go over and over all those things that you wish you’d accomplished, but didn’t have the time or energy to. Oftentimes, this leads to a negative emotional place where you start to beat yourself up for not getting enough done.
What do I need to get Done Tomorrow
This, of course, doesn’t just encompass your workload, though that’s often the lead stress-causer. It’s really just a hodge-podge of everything that turns your tomorrow into a daunting mountain. And the temptation can be to jump up and get a head start. But that will only leave you exhausted and far less productive.
Losing Sleep over Sleep
That frustration and feeling of defeat when you realize how much worse your day will be tomorrow when you don’t get any sleep tonight. And your thoughts start to focus on, “O my gosh, I should really be asleep right now!” “Why am I not falling asleep?”
