20Get Out Of Bed And Move Around!
I bet you weren't expecting us to tell you to avoid sleep if you were trying to fall asleep! The thing is, sometimes when we're trying to fall asleep, it only makes us more restless. This is when those 2am thoughts come about, making us more alert and anxious than before.
The longer we lay there, the more uncomfortable we become. You toss and turn, hoping you'll finally find a comfortable position, but it's probably not going to happen. Instead, get up and do something! Go into another room of the house and do a small activity, like reading or coloring. Distract your mind again and tire yourself out until you begin to doze off.
