Insomnia Loves Procrastination

Aug 18, 2007
There is a natural cure for insomnia that is caused by procrastination.
It's as simple as taking care of things during the day.

Going to bed while you have countless things pulling at the corners of your mind can only mean one thing - insomnia. In order to sleep our minds have to relax to a point where our body naturally falls asleep. If you're busy thinking about all of the things that you didn't accomplish the day before, you won't be able to fall asleep. Worry is a powerful emotion, so powerful in fact that it can lead to a lifelong problem with insomnia.

Even though we know this to be the case, for those people who do put off doing things they often need a push in the right direction. The idea that things can be taken care of tomorrow is always there, and when tomorrow comes and those things aren't dealt with, anxiety takes hold.

The time at the end of the day is often for reflection. Reflecting on what we have accomplished, what we need to do tomorrow and sometimes what we know we didn't do today and won't do tomorrow takes hold of our minds. Naturally people worry about life and all its complications, but if there is a way for someone who has a sleep problem to address those complications and deal with them. If they do this then a good nights sleep is probably close at hand.

The most natural way to deal with insomnia caused by procrastination is to take back control of your life. Start each day with a mission to tackle one thing that you have been putting off doing. If it's a job that you need to get done but it feels overwhelming, ask for help.

If it's a bill that you cannot pay, call the company and discuss your situation. Making an effort to address these issues will help you to feel as though you are in control of the situation and once you do this, you'll have much less to worry about each night.

If you have several things that you've been neglecting to deal with, make a list. List the task and then possible ways you can manage that task. If you do this you are making a concerted effort to change that particular situation. Now when you are in bed each night and you do think of that task, you will find reassurance in knowing that you are working towards resolving it. Your mind won't be stuck on worrying about how it will never get done or solved.

Procrastination can lead to serious problems in many areas of your life, including in your sleep patterns. If you find that you are worrying over all the things you have not done as you lay in bed each night, it's time to take control and change things. Insomnia often makes these situations worse because it steals the energy you need each day to deal with all of lifes issues. Don't get caught in this difficult cycle. Make positive changes in your life so you no longer have to worry about insomnia.
