“It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep“. Psalm 127:2 (ESV)
Work can become such an obsession driving our every waking moment. Anxiety and sleeplessness result. We need balance in our lives, balance between work, family, friends and our spiritual life. Favoring one above the others leads to an imbalance and anxiety.
If you can’t sleep jot down what’s bothering you, rather than playing it over and over again in your head all night.
