40 Amazing Thoughts Everyone Has When They Can't Sleep

Buzzle Staff Oct 28, 2018
Dear sleep, sorry I used to hate you when I was younger. I absolutely love you now! Don't we all cherish our beloved moments with sleep. But there are days when she eludes our welcoming arms. Then the struggle to catch some much-needed shut-eye begins.
You brush your teeth, switch off the lights, and slip under a comfy blanket. Your bed welcomes you with open arms. You relax and fall asleep. If only things were as simple as that. There are days when sleep decides to play hard-to-get.
You start wondering why you aren't dozing off. Then you start thinking about your neighbor's pet, the embarrassing incident you had in school, or how your ex cheated on you, blah, blah, blah... Now it seems like Mr. Brain doesn't want to sleep, and those racing thoughts just won't stop!!!
