Have you ever experienced a situation where no matter how hard you try to get yourself to sleep, you are found wanting to do so?
Today is one such night for me. I got into my bed at around 11 p.m. feeling blessed to have hit the bed so soon. An hour passed by, and then another one. And as I write here, it is already 2:50 a.m. in the morning.
I wonder why is it that I am unable to get myself off to sleep. It might have looked perfectly logical if I had slept for a couple of hours in the afternoon or in the evening or I had some deadlines to meet.
But nothing of that sort has happened. The only conclusion that I can draw is that there is something going around in my mind which is preventing me to avail the luxury that nights have to offer. Something, strong enough, that I am unable to stop thinking about it. Something, very close to my heart.
There is something that has been left unresolved on my part which needs to be brought to its culmination. Something, that is left unfinished. Something which needs urgent attention and action on my part.
The most surprising thing, though, is that I am completely unaware of what this something is. I have no clue on how to decipher this code behind this something. I am not able to even differentiate the very nature of this something, whether it is anxiety or whether it is restlessness.
Whatever the nature of this something might be, I need to get myself off the hook. I need to free myself from this thought process. And the best way to do so is to try some meditation or to get involved in some activity which interests me the most.
And here am I writing this article and guess what I have already started to feel much better having shared my state of mind with you guys out there.
Can I say that sharing and discussing things indeed helps us in getting rid of our anxieties and tensions? It indeed is a great technique and the very foundation of the same is based on a fact that a man or a woman is a social being.
So, the next time you feel like what I was feeling a little while ago, get yourself to pen down a few things. You can even try writing or talking to a friend and if you don’t find anyone at this time at night, then you know where to pour out everything that is going around in your mind :).
