There are many mornings when I wake up worried and concerned... Business changes require my attention; issues that I might not know how to solve yet. Sometimes it’s about money or my kids or my body that I think might have an illness I don’t know about yet. It all seems quite scary and gloomy when it’s 6:00 am and I’m lying down in bed.
Staying horizontal never helps. Trying to fall back to sleep is not easy because the dark thoughts stick around. But magically, when I get up, stand and leave my bed, those upsetting thoughts leave as well. When I stand up, get on my feet and start moving, it all seems so much easier. I can cope now, being vertical. I can welcome the day, whatever it is.
How do you cope with early morning gloomy thoughts?
