Insomnia again….

It has been a while (besides my recent post on Outlook) that I have posted on my blog. I think I have found a way to do some more up-keep.
When I have had a busy day with a lot of interaction with people and information I find myself unable to sleep. It is almost 04.00 am right now and I am still awake. Instead of looking at the TV or mindlessly browsing the web, I decided I could write on my blog and let my thoughts flow in posts I make rambling about everything and nothing. As almost nobody reads my blog I don’t see the harm in this.
It is like there is something wrong with the way I process information (there really is I’m seeing a psychiatrist šŸ™‚ ). When I’m presented with a lot of stimuli during the day I tend to get really active with a feeling of being in control. This feels great and induces more active behavior, which in turn causes more information to flow my way. This tends to get out of hand and my brain is left in a state of hyper activation. There is little that can get me to sleep when I am like this. It’s also pretty dangerous as I am prone to psychosis. Sleep-deprivation combined with a stressy “high-urgency I have to do things” state of mind is a big no-no.
So how do I prevent this from happening?
The key is prevention I think. Just keep a strict daily routine with lots of physical exercise to relieve the stressy feeling and keep the head clear. This is easier said than done, as the cycle of stress and stress seeking behavior is completely in my nature. Is it possible to make something such a strong habit by repetition that I can overpower this? Let’s try and see….
