One of the most effective techniques we can use to overcome emotional pain is relaxing. We can relax by meditating, using breathing exercises, and other activities that we find calming- like going for a walk, listening to music, or reading. With activities like these, we slow down, take our time to deal with our emotions, and find the chance to properly heal.
Sleep deprivation is linked to increased overthinking and bad moods.
Sleep duration is not just something that makes us be in a good or a bad mood, it can affect our ability to control negative thoughts as well.
There’s a significant negative relationship between sleep duration and overthinking; the more we worry ourselves with negative thoughts the less we’re able to sleep.
