Sleep is one of my favourite things to do, but not all of us can achieve a good night’s sleep. We all lead busy lives, with many demands on our time. We have family commitments, work and school obligations as well as social and domestic requirements. So if you don’t have an adequate sleep, it really can affect how you go on and function each day. So many of us do struggle to get enough sleep. Suffering from anxiety (such as myself) kills your desire to sleep in more ways than one. There have been plenty of times where I can feel my eyes and body be completely exhausted but my mind will continue to work even into the early mornings. Even if you do get sleep, the quality of it might not be very good. It is so important to be able to rest as much as you can, though. It will help you to function in your daily life better. Your moods will improve, which can help your relationships, as well as what you eat. So it is pretty much a no-brainer that getting good sleep should be a top priority. Here are a few ideas to help you.

Living with anxiety I have always tried to find outlets to ease my mind. However, the more I rely on certain activities the more I become prone to them. I try to switch it up from reading a book to a crochet project to playing video games. Recently I have added coloring on my list of go-to’s. I have always enjoyed coloring since I was a child; I remember making mini children picture books and giving them to my school librarian to read to the class. Embarrassing. So it got me thinking, if I enjoyed it so much as a child why can’t I enjoy it as an adult?
