insomnia again

not sleeping again. my brain just wont shut off. i am wound up like a top.

Thinking, thinking, thinking. It never ends does it?

think i’ll go make some tea. i think i have some berry tea i might try. self care is good, right? i tried to relax, now its time to try something else.

mom is coming over this morning for a couple hours. she wants to cut the grass. i told her its short no need to cut it but she said she has to keep on top of it.

she’s so good to me without her I wouldnt have anyone to cut my grass and keep it nice and tidy.

i’m thinking about joining a choir. the place where i get my voice coaching has an adult choir, they sing mostly pop. i think i’d like to join if its not too expensive.

of course first i have to find time…

  1. When I can’t fall asleep, which is often, I try to shut out all the thoughts in my head by picturing the ocean, my favorite place. I have a hard time picturing things in my head so when I really really focus on it and I see it the next thing I know I’m asleep. Try picturing your favorite place and focusing on it. I hope you find something that helps you fall asleep.

  2. I’m sorry you experienced insomnia. Hope you sleep better tonight. The idea of joining a choir sounds great. I was in achildren’s choir for several years in my youth. Now I can’t sing to save my life, but well.


  3. Ooh I know it when you want to fall asleep but can’t stop thinking. It’s awful. I hope you found something that helped you to fall asleep. 🙂 The idea to join the choir is very good. 🙂


  4. I use an app that can play a variety of soothing sounds… waves, gentle rain, white noise, wind, etc… it helps my mind to calm down and if I do wake in the night it creates an environment of calmness. I also use a salt lamp on low at night… not sure if it’s a combination of the two or one versus the other… but it’s working for now😊 I wish you a peaceful rest!

      1. Relax melodies is the app I use … I know they have several out there that are free … the one I’m using has free things on it as well as an upgrade. I use the free version as it’s meeting my needs. And yes a salt lamp is awesome 😃
