If you are not able to sleep properly, then read this.
I really don’t know how to share with you the pain of not being able to sleep. There was a time when I couldn’t sleep for 3 days straight and I felt like I was losing my mind and couldn’t read or understand what others were saying.
I was not able to sleep and it is not a motivation problem, it’s a real problem. I was thinking about outlanding things and having ideas that would prove to be a great business idea. But I was terrified.
I felt like if I slept, I would die. And it was an irrational fear but it was also as real. I was afraid of something but I did not know what. I was afraid and I was manic at the same time. My mind was racing with thoughts. I was thinking so many thoughts and also hoping if they just stopped.
Although medication helped me, now whenever I face this problem, I don’t worry about it. I just let my mind do what it is doing. Honestly I think medication played a big role, probably 70% and my actions 30%. But on a big picture level, mantra chanting and seeking mentors is what worked 70% and medication 30%.
I don’t know if it is connected but self-improvement through observation and learning is probably the most important thing I did to move forward despite insomnia, depression, anxiety and a whole slew of mental illnesses.
Depression was probably a wake up call for me to say “Fuck you” to the world and listen to my heart. And if I would not have listened to my heart and taken Philosophy, I would probably stay depressed even if I took medication.
I believe everything is interconnected. So to number the chances of something working will not be wise. It is best if we surrender and take action on a big picture level.
So the solution to insomnia in my opinion is self-improvement.
