My body may want to sleep most nights, but my mind often says otherwise. For reasons unknown to me, when I lie down at night, I do not like to fall asleep right away, as I feel it helps me relax. Also, I often tend to prefer a light sleep for an hour or two, prior to heading to my bedroom for 5-6 hours of deeper sleep. I feel as if I am entirely obsessive compulsive regarding my sleeping habits. The past several days have been a bit better, as I have been less anxious and depressed during the day. However, when it comes about time to sleep, I begin to feel a bit more anxious and the "dread" of not desiring to get to bed begins to hit, as do the racing thoughts. Once I am asleep, I typically have no issues staying asleep, and the quality of my sleep is solid. Most weekdays I am able to get between 5-7 hours. However, I am tired of struggling with this dread of not wanting to sleep. Any tips?
