Hi Brooke,
I find it difficult to rest because I think it’s a waste of time and I should always be doing stuff, creating lessons and being super-productive. So when I sit in front of the TV, I feel the need to do something so I just overeat.
I’m trying to think thoughts like “I deserve to rest” but it doesn’t stick. I need help on this one which also makes me wake up in the middle of the night, super-excited that I get to do stuff the next day, and then I don’t go back to sleep.
C – rest
T – I should always be active and productive.
F – excited
A – I don’t rest, I can’t sleep at night, I overeat, I can’t do “nothing”
R – I’m tired and overfed.
