We’ve all had nights where we just don’t sleep. Sometimes it’s because of a conscious choice we made to stay up late into the night studying for a test, watching a movie, playing a game, or talking to friends. Sometimes it’s because of a medical condition such as sleep apnea affecting the quality of your sleep. Often, out of no choice of your own, you find yourself tossing and turning all night with your mind constantly racing. Worries about paying the bills, your grades in school, or the other affairs of your life can make good sleep difficult go achieve.
