Why We Let Our Imagination Run Wild At Night 😴 πŸŒ™ 🧠

Darn it!! πŸ’₯

Why do we let our imagination run wild at night, turning simple worries into larger-than-life catastrophes that steal away our precious sleep?

In the past, 8 out of 10 nights, my restful nights were over at 2am. Lying awake in the dark. Watching as my thoughts spiral out of control. 🀯

My mind used to go into overdrive, conjuring up doomsday scenarios that would make even the bravest soul break out in a cold sweat.

Thoughts of my business crumbling to dust, financial ruin looming on the horizon, the prospect of spending my days in solitary confinement, and yes, even the dreaded image of becoming the neighborhood’s resident crazy cat ladyβ€”all of it played out like a twisted movie reel in my mind. πŸ˜₯

Sounds insane, doesn’t it?

Why do we dig rabbit holes at night? πŸ‡

I had to put an end to those sleepless nights.

I wanted to get my sleep back.

So I thought about it and this is what I found:
We are geniuses! No, we really are! πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“

Because we have this beautiful gift called β€˜imagination’. 🌈 πŸ¦„ We use it brilliantly as artists, creatives, and visionaries in our businesses. No other creature is gifted like that.

But I realized that I also use it to write horrific doomsday scenarios at night when I am lying there in the dark. πŸ‘»


I’ll tell you what I discovered: FEAR. 😣

Sneaky little bugger, isn’t it?

It loves to hijack our imagination when we are most vulnerable because nothing else is distracting us, filling our heads with tales of impending disaster.

But HA❗❗ here’s the good news:

Now that I am shining a light on fear, calling it out for the troublemaker it is, I feel like I am already on the path to reclaiming my peaceful and restful nights.

We’ll see. I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, let’s chat.

Why do you think we let our imagination run wild at night? And more importantly, what do YOU do to rein it in and get some well-deserved shut-eye?

I’m all ears.
