Continuing the topic of ‘racing mind’, we would like to say that you shouldn’t let it take its course, since we all know that healthy sleep is simply necessary for the prosperity of our body and our emotional state. You just have to know and be sure that you can overcome this flow of unnecessary and negative thoughts.
The best way is to step back from your negative thoughts and just accept them.
You have probably heard about the method as mindfulness, and this is exactly what you need to solve this sleep problem. This technique will help you get rid yourself of the emotional struggle with this flow of thinking and simply let your thoughts go.
When you go to bed and feel that the desired sleep does not come, and negative thoughts arise instead, you should try to just observe them and not take them seriously. Simply try to distance yourself from this flow of unnecessary thoughts, and see if you can observe them without reacting to them.
