Nights Can Be Tough When You're Healing

It's nights that can be the biggest challenge when you're healing. Nights are when you're alone with your thoughts and feelings. It's not as easy to be distracted or reach out to someone for help.


Worries that plague your mind in the middle of the night won't seem as big in the daylight hours. So how do you get through the night when all you can do is worry? Here are some tips that have helped me.


  1. Keep a journal by your bed - When you can't sleep or you wake up in a panic, write down what your worries are. Make a list or describe what you are feeling so you can handle it the next day.

  2. Limit your alcohol intake - Drinking alcohol negatively impacts your quality of sleep and it can cause you to wake in the middle of the night.

  3. Create a bedtime routine - Have a relaxing routine. Wash your face, read a book, or listen to relaxing music. Do things that relax and ease your mind.

  4. Limit screen time - Don't look at your phone, computer, or television an hour or two before bed. This will allow your mind to relax and insure you won't see anything that triggers you before bed.

  5. Set do not disturb on your phone - This will ensure texts and notifications won't wake you up through the night. Get a separate alarm clock and put your phone in another room if needed.


When the daylight hours return, address your concerns. Speak to a friend or professional. The best way to process your emotions is to talk to someone about them. Give your feelings a voice and decide what steps you need to take to heal.
